Time For Another Give Away


So, I thought I would have another give away - this time it's for one of my butterfly wing pendants - this one has 5 Swarovski Crystals 4 aqua ones and a clear one - It is also one of the 1st ones I did with my own mix of pearlized glass paint. It's painted with a silvery light blue, a pretty pearlized royal blue, with white striping on cobalt blue glass. The bezel is made of copper foil with lead free solder, that has silver in it - the bail is made with sterling silver wire. It comes with a 16" black silk cord with a lobster style clasp - If you want a longer or shorter cord, let me know in your comment - I don't recommend you go longer than 18" tho - actually I like them best on a 14" length. Now, I will admit part of the reason I'm giving this one away - one of the crystals is a bit off from where I wanted it - and I couldn't pry it off to reposition it - doesn't really look bad - it just isn't where it would look the best.

So, what do you have to do to win this one of a kind Butterfly Wing Pendant? Not much!

Go to my studio on ArtFire (title links to my studio) take a peak around and then come back here and leave me a comment - either raving about how beautiful it is (lo) , which item you like the best, or some constructive criticism - I already know some of the pictures aren't the best in the world - so no need to comment about those!

Drawing will be held Sat Am Aug 1st.

Good Luck!

100 Blog Post & 100th Listing

WOW! I'm not sure I could have timed this out if I had tried to - my 100th listing and my 100th blog post on the same day!
Well, since I have had 2 sales, I guess it would be my 102nd listing, but it's my currently 100th listing, so that's what I'm counting!
And, that's a good thing for those of you who love special ornaments, because I'm listing my beautiful handpainted one of a kind "Ocean" ornament for $10.00.
Normally I sell this size for $16 - $20, depending on the work, so this is a great deal for this special little ornament.
I have others in my ArtFire Studio too - and will be adding more in the next few days.

Here's "Ocean"

Have a great day and thanks for checking out my blog!
