I'm having a DRAWING..come throw your name in the hat

I'm having so much fun playing with silk cord that it's time to share...
Yes, It's been a looong time since I've given something away--a drawing is long overdue. Since I've been having so much fun with my knotting, I thought I should give away one of my single strand bracelets. This one is constructed a little differently than the ones I have for sale. This was one of my 'experiments', so the clasp is attached a little differently and the silk cord is a little finer than most. I still think it is sturdy and wearable and I do love the drape and lightness of these little treasures, so I hope you'll want join in the fun.

I've used some amazonite ovals from my stash and cushioned them with tiny crystal bicone swarovski's. Knotted on fine silk thread and finished off with a sterling silver clasp, it's about 7 3/4" length for a nice draping fit on your wrist.


So, how do you enter---just comment in my blog sometime in the next two weeks. I'll draw a winner from the comment section November 13. Please do check back and if you're the lucky winner, email me your NAME and MAILING ADDRESS to rspv@aol.com --if I don't have that, I can't send you your bracelet! I'm planning on posting often the next two weeks...now I need to get busy and figure out something interesting to talk about!!! Send your friends over too...the more the merrier!

It's good to see you back. I'd been wondering where you were. Hadn't seen you much around the LE show and tell :)

Welcome back!

Love your strung silk designs. Makes me want to get out my silk and string some things. Humm, maybe I will later today. I love gaining inspiration from other artists. I'll link back to you after I finish a piece.

Great giveaway piece. I have always thought Amazonite was the perfect balance of color between turquoise and blue.

You might consider joining a few of us on our quest to Create Every Day. I have a link list on my blog.

Nothing like a Giveaway to get people's attention! Your blog is new to me and I will add it to my blog list, love your slabs and knotting! Would you care to share the source of that silk thread? I've been looking everywhere, it's just the kind I would like :) Thank you for the bracelet opportunity.
