It's My Turn to Give Something Away

Since January 16, 2005. "97,893" people have visited my blog. Looking back I found a common theme. I like to incorporate Art beads into my bead work. It helps having a humblebead daughter who creates such lovely beads to work with. Humblebeads have found there way into crocheted ropes, bracelets and bead embroidery. One of my favorite creations is the Garden by the Sea bracelet. Heather's cuff bead is perfect as the focal bead in this design. Would you like to make your own Garden by the Sea. The pattern is available in my etsy shop. Earthenwood Studios is another designer who's beads find their way nestled in my designs. The Queen of Denial found herself sailing the high seas on Bead Cruise 2009. Melanie's cabochon faces have such character. I have one Dragonfly Melody Kit available using an Earthenwood Studio dragonfly cabochon. At this time the dragonfly cabochon is no longer in production. Don't forget to check out Melanie's etsy shop for more one of a kind productions. In honor of all those Artists that make wonderful Art beads I am having my first give blog give away. This crocheted bracelet features an Earthenwood Studio Bead with faceted black cut seed beads. No need for a clasp as it rolls over your wrist. It will fit up to a 7 1/2 inch wrist. Contest Rules. Just leave a comment. Make sure there is a link to your blog or email to contact you by. Please help spread the news about the giveaway through your blog, twitter or facebook . ********** The winner will be picked on September 14th by a number generator. Thank you for stopping by. I enjoy your visits.

Yes, you are lucky to be so closely aligned with such talent (runs in the family) but so giving of your own talents to use the beads of other artists! Love your work. I have no patience for those little beads, so I really appreciate that you do. And 97,000 visitors? Wow! What a milestone.
Count me in your giveaway!
Enjoy the day!

Love, love, love your bracelet. Beautiful work. Would love to admire it close up. As in, from my wrist. :D

Hope I win!! Thanks for offering it.

Marcia DeCoster said...

Once upon a time I thought I would learn to crochet with size 13 charlottes, then reason prevailed, it would be so much nicer to win your version and I love the Melanie bead at it's center, and I am a wearer of black afterall....
