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!

Love the trees and the wings. Fav is probably between this one and the black twilight. Love the talent, always envious of anyone that can paint/draw.

Niko said...

I'm a sucker for Art Nouveau, so my favorite piece from your shop is this one:

Also, I really really like cobalt blue.

Easy! The Calla Lily ornament is my all time favorite! Callas were my wedding flower and they hold a special place in my heart-and yours are beautiful!

What a lovely competition. Okay. What I love about your Artfire studio is your header banner, I think it's gorgeous and classy & colourful! And my favourite item is the art nouveau pendant (lol, just read all your comments - Janelle & I have the same taste!). Congratulations on your 100th post, too - master blogger!

lisianblue said...

Oh Yeah - Kimberly and Sabine entered!!
Kimberly - was going to ask you which calla lily ornament - but just realized I don't have the little one on there yet. Did you see the vase?

Sabine - Thank you - I'm pretty happy with the way that one turned out - the banner! And the art nouveau pendant - and apparently so are other people!
Good luck ladies! and thanks so much for coming by and entering!!
