Thanks So Much and Give A Way




It's been just a wee bit over a year since I opened my jewelry components and button Etsy shop. I started with porcelain buttons, I added pendants, charms, and various jewelry components. This has been so much fun! I get to induldge my penchant for working with itty bitty things. I love small.



I am absolutely, thrilled each and every time one of you uses my components in your beautiful works of art. I love that you share these with me.



The give away is for one bronze pendant a little less than 1 inch (25 mm) in diameter, with a patina aged surface. There are no real rules to this. Just leave me a comment, just one, please. If you'd like to spread the word about this on your blog, or by any other means, please do so. But,really all you need to do is to leave a comment. I'll randomly draw a winner on Tuesday the 1 September.



This give away is my thank you to all of you who have been so supportive of my journey over the last year. I'd never have grown so much without you all.


Many, many thanks, LeAnn

Thanks so much for the chance to win this beautiful pendant. Your work is incredible. Very Victorian look which I am a big fan of. Oh, and I really like the tutorial from Monday. It's cool to see the process behind the bead.

Me! Me! Pick me! LOL! Actually, have to tell you I just finished a pair of earrings last night using some of the components I purchased from you. I'll be blogging about them later this week as soon as I can get pictures taken.

Ooh, I was going to add a couple of these to my cart yesterday if I could find one of your denim blue lentils to go with it! Next week... Unless I win one!!

LeAnn the bronze is awesome. Congratulations on year mark. I love your work.

TesoriTrovati said...

Wonderful work that you do...very inspiring. I am so intrigued by the processes that you describe. I love to learn about the work that goes into the art beads because that makes them even more precious to me when I use an artist's beads.

It would be an honor to have one of yours.

Congratulations on your anniversary!
Enjoy the day!
