SPRING CELEBRATION DRAWING

I decided to do another drawing for one of my pendants. I de-activated one that I had listed, but it seemed to fit the theme for the drawing better than anything else.
I think this pendant celebrates spring with it's little daisy painted on yellow stained glass. It has 3 yellow crystals dangling below just for added fun. It's rescued stain glass that was headed for the dump - I smoothed the edges a bit, but I don't have a proper grinder, so the edges are just a tad bumpy in a couple of spots, it's wrapped like stained glass with copper foil and soldered with lead free solder. It's then sanded relatively smooth, and polished to a nice shine. From the top of the loop on the pendant to the bottom crystal, it measures 3.25" and just shy of 1/2" wide. You can just spritz it with a little vinegar water to clean it, or wash it in soapy water, rinse and dry with a lint free cloth.
Comes with a 16" (or any length you want 14" - 18") black silk cord and will be tucked into a drawstring organza pouch. Personally, I really like these on the shorter 14" cords. But, hey we all have different preferences, so whatever length you'd like is cool!





So, to sign up for this drawing - go to my shop on ArtFire and have a look around, then come back here and leave a comment about one item in my shop - good, bad, pricing, fav, colored background or off white - sort of feedback kind of thing!
Drawing will be Midnight (my time) Sunday (April 12th)night!
Thanks for your interest and good luck on the drawing!

Greetings!

Thank'ee's for the convo alerting me to this giveaway. :-)I was busy hiding offline from Conficker on April 1, so missed your previous giveaway altogether. Love the daisy -so beautifully spring! :-) Reminds me of all the flowers springing up around here. :-)

As to your shop - there is so much loveliness! :-) I like the Moody Twilight pendant. It doesn't seem gloomy to me, more mysterious, but I think that's b/c the moon was peeking out at us through the clouds as we came home last night.

I too like the Aqua Bling necklace. Besides the general love of sparkle & rescued materials, I also like the way the spirals amble across the piece very organically & the nontraditional shape.

Cobalt blue is one of my long-time fave colors, so between that & the shapes of those loverly art noveau flowers, there is some serious Covet going on! :-D

I could go on, but I really should get to other tasks, so I shall close for now w/a question from one seller to another. You have pieces that look like they are double-listed, both there & on Etsy. Are they, or do you just have similar pieces on both sites? And what if they both sell b/f you notice?

I ask b/c I'm wondering about other shops for myself after I finally get my Etsy shops stocked & how I would handle that issue myself. Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. :-)

Also, do you ever consider trades? I have some glass that you might be interested in - some bottles, vases, def. a lot of glass spots & marbles. And/or have you considered selling items like your soldered marble as components? (Hmm... maybe a double-ended marble for use as a necklace/belt link?)

Anyhoo, awesome work as ever & thnx for letting me know about your giveaway! :-)

Bright Blessings & Good Fortune! :-)

Natasha - you're so funny! Thanks for going and taking a look see and letting me know what you think!
Good luck!

Bird - well, if leaving comments about more than one item upped your chances of winning, this certainly would. But, I really am going to do it fairly and put the names in a "hat" and draw a name!

But, I really do appreciate your comments - I will send you a convo on etsy! Glad you came by and entered this one!
Good Luck!
