August/September Free Bling Giveaway!

August 2011 Free Bling

Time for my monthly Free Bling Friday giveaway! Random.org picked comment number 32 as the winner of my July Free Bling, so congratulations to Susan from Ringgold, Georgia! This is rather a funny coincidence! I emailed Susan after she registered because my great aunt lives in Ringgold (a VERY small town), and we visit her each August for her birthday. Yay for Susan! I'm heading your way on Thursday!

For August, I'm still in a green mood. These little stunners feature some lovely handmade silvered green lampwork beads topped with Czech glass, all wrapped up with sterling silver findings. To be eligible to win, simply visit either of my Etsy shops (here for jewelry and here for photography) and leave a comment in the comment box below with the link to your favorite piece along with a way to reach you and where you’re from by midnight Thursday, October 6. Want more entries? Tweet, blog or Facebook this giveaway and leave another comment with the link. The next winner will be drawn via random.org Friday, October 7. Don't want to miss a single Free Bling Friday? Click here to sign up for free weekly email updates or subscribe in the reader of your choice over there in the right column. And be sure to join my Facebook Fan page for Fan specials. Thanks for stopping in!  *Note: since I had a blonde moment and totally forgot to share this on my usual giveaway sites, I'm extending!  Open to US residents only.

Those small pearls are best for attraction in earnings. Also like those zigzag style at the top of earnings. Perfect for party wear.

Hi! I'm from Poland and I totally love your creations with tile pendants. My favorite is the "Whispers Glass Tile, Digital Collage and Pearl Necklace" - so chic! But I can't stop admiring those earrings - Blue Bells No. 3 Lampwork, Crystal and Sterling Earrings - they're just so beautiful and somehow summer-ish for me ;)
Thanks for a chance to win those cuties!

Dante Dalziel said...

So I honestly cannot pick just one favorite, so I hope you don't mind me listing a few:
First, your Watching Melrose - Clock Photo. I've got such a thing for clocks, and vintage things, and it's just an all around amazing photo! It really makes me want to see it in person.
Second, your Desmond's Rear Emblem - Rusty Car photo. The angle is perfect, and it's one of the best old car shots I've seen in a while, and definitely my favorite of yours!

alexipharmiccyanide@hotmail.com is the best way to reach me.
I'm from northwestern Washington! I've always lived here, and I probably always will (not to say I don't want to travel, a lot!)

I'm generally pretty subdued with my wardrobe choices (lots of gray and black) but I love the rich colors of your jewelry! The Raspberry Punch bracelet (http://www.etsy.com/listing/75447321/raspberry-punch-lampwork-crystal) would be a great splash of color to an outfit!
