A Bead Woven Giveaway from My Shop!

This Giveaway has been closed.
Please check back each week for the new ones!

I can't even begin to tell you how much fun I've been having doing these giveaways! This is only the tenth week and we've already grown so much. My first giveaway had only 30 entries, and some of them had less, but the last one had 57 - that's incredible! So, to celebrate, I decided to giveaway one of my bead woven necklaces this week :)



If you click on the link above you'll get all the nitty-gritty details, but I'll tell you here that this is one of my favorite patterns to make! In fact, I haven't made one for awhile, so I think I shall have to make another one soon. Anyway, I love this particular piece both because it uses the antique lace stitch that I love, but also because it's so sparkly! I'm a sucker for sparkly. In fact I tend to get distracted easily by sparkly things, which is dangerous as a jewelry artist. :P 

So How Can You Win?

1. Leave a comment on this blog = 1 entry
2. Visit my FB page and "like" it. Leave a comment there to let me know your a new or returning fan! = 1 entry
3. Visit my Artfire page or Etsy page, come back and leave a separate comment with your favorite piece = 1 entry
4. Follow this blog or let me know your already following = 1 entry
5. Announce this contest on plurk or twitter, come back and leave a comment with a link = 1entry
6. Blog about it! Since this is means monopolizing your blog space it = 2 entries
7. Make a purchase in either of my stores (Artfire or Etsy) = 5 entries! 

That's a total of 12 possible entries! Please remember to leave separate entries for each entry to make my job easier! I'll be keeping track in a spreadsheet and each entry will be given a separate number (based on order received) and I'll pick a winner using the random number generator. 

*Winner to be announced Saturday, April 9th, in the Evening*

For an extra incentive - you know how option 7 to enter was to make a purchase?
Well if you send $10 in one of my shops you'll get a pair of earrings valued $5 along with your order!
So you get an extra pair of earrings - and 5 entries towards this giveaway...
Sounds like a good time to shop!


Update 4/5
You can earn extra entries! Go to Artfire to find out how :)


Update 4/6


I'm getting ton of entries this week!
As I write this one I'm at 81 entries - and it's only Wednesday Morning!
If I reach 100 entries I'll add a second winner to the fun!
They will receive these earrings:



Dark Wood and Spiral Earrings

So what are you waiting for?

Update 4/7
We are over 100 entries - the earrings will be going to one lucky winner!

Visited your Etsy page - you have a wide variety of styles! Love the woven lace patriotic necklace - like you said, subtle but it gets the message across. Would be great to wear on Friday's when we wear red to honor our troops.
