From one giveaway to another...

I have been jumping up and down all week waiting for this day! Last week, I won a giveaway Anne from Jewellery Quarter hosted to celebrate her 1000th sale. She gave away $100 worth of items from her shop on Etsy. Anne even let me choose what I wanted!

I couldn't quite picture what $100 worth of beads looked like. But now I can!

There are brass and copper coloured stampings, Czech glass, flowers, decorative clasps, sari silk, gemstones galore...apatite, fluorite, quartz, and a few types of agate. Wow! I can't get over how much stuff there is. I was so inspired, I whipped up a bracelet from this stash.

And that brings us to my giveaway! I'm going to give this bracelet away to one lucky winner. All the materials I used came from Anne's shop (except a few Vintaj headpins). The bracelet is perfect for Spring! I curved the brass coloured bird, so it fits nicely on the wrist, and used sari silk to make up the rest of the bracelet. The clasp is one of the lovely floral textured ones I got from Anne and a few of her Czech glass flowers. 

Here's how to enter:

A quick introduction...

I am so excited about this year's BSBP! I've been paired with the lovely and talented Caroline from BlueberriBeads! How exciting is that? I'm really looking forward to this swap, as I love her clay beads so much.

After chatting to Caroline, I came up with a soup that I hope she'll enjoy using. Well, I can't show you it yet because she hasn't seen it! But I will share a gratuitous blurred teaser pic. Here it is...

Ta da! Yeah, I'm not giving much away...I even wanted the colour to be a surprise. Sorry, Caroline!

The real purpose is to give a little shout out for my lovely partner and head you in the direction of her blog and shop! I'm sure most of you are already familiar with Caroline's beautiful beads, but just in case, please check out her blog and shop, BlueberriBeads. You'll love it!
