CLOSED. Giveaway #4: Christmas in July

Everybody knows that Christmas is on December, 25th (or on January 7th for Orthodox believers). I thought so until I came here, in US. Now I know that there are two Christmases- one is in July :)
My next giveaway is timed to this "holiday".  Today I want to "raffle off'" a pair of very attractive earrings that I made with pure copper ear hooks, antiqued copper jump rings, and 6mm natural green aventurine beads.

  6. Love your blog. I actually made your business card holder and I love it. (Not as pretty as yours, as I used what I had on hand, but it works)
    Thanks for all your great ideas. Come check out my blog. I am new to the contributing part, but I have been a blog stalker for awhile.

  7. Sorry, I did not leave my email in the last post, I forgot,so here I go again! I would like to see a blog about which books or magazines you recommend for beginners up through advanced jewelry makers. I would love to start making some steampunk style jewelry but i don't know where to begin, or what tools would be essential or brands would be best. Maybe a little 3 part series? One blog about getting started, how to bring your vision to life and processes for creating and inspirations, one about books that are helpful and one more on buying the best tools to begin crafting with. I would definitely be interested in reading something like that from someone so experienced! Thanks for this chance to win!

  74. It would be nice if some of the followers could send pictures to you of what they have done by using your tips, tutorials. Like if you show us something, people could send pictures how well they managed to do the same thing. And maybe the person who has the best , prettiest, most creative piece will have her picture on your blog. :) Just an idea
