Christine's Beadworks has reached over 280 facebook fans thanks in large part to the Flint City Handmade Market and the recommendation of my supportive fans. It's time for another giveaway and my good friend, Loretta, selected two items from my inventory for two lucky fans.
First the rules. To enter, you must be a ChristinesBeadworks Fan on Facebook or a follower of this blog; you must be 18 years of age or older; and you must leave a comment here on this post or on my face book page here. The winner will be selected randomly from those who leave comments and will be contacted through their facebook or blog profiles. Now the comment topic: I'm considering offering optional beaded and/or satin cords for my bottle cap pendants. The big question of the day is: "When purchasing a pendant, would you prefer an optional neck cord (you can select your own) or an included neck cord (a complete look)?" The winner will be selected and notified Monday, March 29, 2010.
The first person chosen will receive this lovely spiral rope. For some reason, I cannot seem to get a good picture of this beauty. The enameled, sterling silver button from Gita Maria inspired this colorway and is evocative of spring days romping in daffodil fields. This 18 inch necklace can be worn with the button facing front or back. It's a versatile piece wearable with most spring and summer colorways (yellow, blue, teal, raspberry, red, and green).
The second person drawn will receive this riveted metal pendant featuring my newest, double sided design. The featured bottle cap is from Magic Hat Brewery located in Vermont. This is another awesome brew with an equally awesome bottle cap. Each brew has a thought provoking quote inside the cap that a customer suggested I find a way to show. This is my first generation pendant fulfulling that request. Like all my metal pendants, this one is heavily textured with brass on the front and copper on the back. Both flame and liver of sulfur were used to create an aged patina. Alcohol ink provides additional aging to the saying on the cap's back and resin protects the image on both sides. The pieces are riveted with copper wire and the pendant suspends from a handmade copper bail. A 24 inch brass chain is included.
Good luck everyone.
