A giveaway, just for you...

This giveaway isn't really about me,

it's about you...



You who have supported me,

encouraged me,

inspired me.



You who have made me smile,

made me laugh,


made my heart so full that I feel it will burst.



You who have followed my journey with gentle words,


and open arms,


and infinite enthusiasm.


So to celebrate the next milestone in this journey,
(I cannot believe I opened my Etsy shop yesterday...this feels like a dream...)


which I would never have reached had it not been for you,


I have a giveaway...just for you.




This sweetly simple hollow form necklace...


Handcrafted from sterling silver,


shaped and formed,


and given a deep patina.




It has an olde worlde feel about it.


It could be something that your mother handed down to you,


and her mother handed down to her.


It is a little piece of me,


made with attention to detail...




and a lot of love ♥


My gift to you!


~*~


This giveaway is open to anyone and everyone,


and I will post this necklace to the winner wherever s/he may be in the world.

  48. ...and I follow your blog, but I don't have one of my own to post wonderful things about yours (although I would if I could)

    ReplyDelete
  49. Belinda, this is my favourite piece you have created yet. PLEASE tell me you'll be making more for the etsy store!! It has such a glorious olde world feeling to it - just like you said, it is like something that would have been passed through the generations, which can be passed down to future ones. It is simple, yet so interesting and complicated and detailed.....looks so strong and yet so delicate. You seem to really do brilliantly with that - making your work filled with fragility and strength at the same time.

    Ok. So I like your page.

    I have and will continue to do so. It makes me feel good when I see your new work. It's an exciting journey.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Oh! And I have been meaning to tell you (and what better excuse to scream it now!) my favourite piece on your etsy is your desert flower ring. I love the way you've combined a delicate, intricately crafted seed bead shape with the strength, durability, longevity of silver. It is so unique and beautiful and special and I would LURRRRVE to wear it!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Ha! I didn't know you could follow blogs more than just checking on them regularly. Well, I now officially follow your blog Missy. How exciting!

    ReplyDelete
  52. I have posted on my FB with a link here... not sure if this is how to send you that link buuuut

    ReplyDelete
