New Year Giveaway!!

Hi everyone!

In honour of the brand new year, I'm having another giveaway! I'd like to build a customer picture and review gallery on my website* and I thought what better way to get it started than to offer a glassy incentive! The fabulous prize? A beautiful key focal and a matching earring pair all in my new swirl style.

There are two ways to enter this giveaway:

1. Email me high quality pictures of jewellery created by you and made with my beads; the higher the resolution, the better! If needed, I can do any necessary picture editing.

2. Write a little review of my beads or jewellery that you've purchased from me. Please make your review a minimum of three sentences.

You will receive one entry for pictures and/or one entry for a review for a maximum number of entries of two. So, if you send me a picture, you'll get one entry. If you send me ten pictures, you'll still get just one entry; likewise with the reviews. If you send me one (or more) pictures AND one (or more) reviews, you'll get TWO entries! Got it? Easy!

This giveaway is only open to previous customers but, fear not newcomers, I'll be having an open giveaway very soon!

In other news: I'll be exhibiting at both of the Big Bead Shows this year! The first show is in April and the second show is in October. I'm already making lots of new pretties for the shows! I'm happy to bring back my show discount for previous customers too. If you email me in advance of the show and let me know you'll be there, you'll receive 10% off all beads you purchase from me at the show!

I am teaching more lampwork lessons this year too. Would you like to learn how to make your own beads? Come spend the day (or half day) with me in my studio and I'll show you how it's done. I teach beginner, intermediate and advanced students as well as a wide range of techniques and designs. Let's melt glass!

I'm also currently accepting custom orders. Pet portraits, sweet treats, beads to match a certain design or fabric, you name it! I'm also debuting my 'Beloveds' bead range. You send me pictures of your loved ones and I create little beads to match! My own bracelet includes my family, husband and husband's family. You may order them with or without little personal designs on the opposite side too! For example, I've always called my younger sister "duckling" so on the back of her bead I created a teeny little duckling! The sky is the limit with these designs. Please contact me for more information.

I've just relisted some of my favourite kitty cat focals in my Etsy shop. Passionate Paula (perfect for Valentine's Day!), Calico Jack the pirate kitty, Lilith the devil kitty, Summer the garden kitty and, of course, Luxe kitty are all there waiting for you to give them a loving home :)

Hope you all have a wonderful 2010 and please feel free to email me with any questions.


*Please note: If you do not wish to have a picture and/or review on my website, please do not enter.
