Thank you for your wonderful responses, questions and comments for the giveaway! What a rich cast of characters you all are! For those of you that had to fight with the comment feature, I do apologize. Not that I can explain it to you, because that would require that I first understood it, which clearly, I don't. It might be that you have to set up a persona at the open I.D. spot. OOhhh how exciting. Here's your chance to have a whole new persona! Or maybe join the blog, be a member, that might work! Really, I can't help you out with it, other than that. If the alert says that your URL has illegal characters, I don't know what you've done. Hey try being a law abiding citizen for a change, see what that does for you. Try it, you might like it.
Well it's been a busy week, but then, aren't they all?
You know the drill....first, I make you suffer through pictures of my jewelry. Now really, isn't that what you're here for? Not for my witty dialogue certainly! So these items have been listed recently
|Yes, these are foldformed too!|
one more and mind you, this one is neither delicate nor hammered metal...
|those rubies are rocking it!|
You've all done very nicely with this little exercise in patience improvement training. A+ for all of you, except for that one of you whose been grumbling through the whole process. You know who you are.
See here is where I was going to get your opinions, for instance-do you want me to make some things like this for my shop?...
and I was going to share my tale of woe about this....
and you know you really want to hear about that, don't you? well, maybe if you ask nice....yeah, you're gonna hear about that anyway, next time. When I've recovered from the trauma.
So you want to know about the giveaway do you? I don't blame you. Why else would you be reading this blog?
Here's the deal...In the name of fairness, I'm giving it another couple of days until I make the big announcement of who won the fabulous giveaway prizes! Why? Well cuz now I've cleared up the problem with commenting, so there'll be a flood of new scintillating comments. You wouldn't want those hoards of people to miss out on their chance, would you? Me either. Though I don't think anything could top the comments we've already got, cuz you all are brilliant commenters! Raising the bar a bit here, aren't we? Besides you're all wondering about prize #3, aren't you? Yeah, I guess I could show you what it's going to be. And let you know that our ever elusive
mystery judge is awarding that prize. And that she's already leaning very heavily towards one of you.... so are you sure that you want to know? doesn't the air of mystery keep the excitement alive? Sure it does, but since you're hounding me like a pack of dogs (ok actually, no one has even inquired. great self -restraint people!) here it is....
oh wait, I forgot to edit that picture...can't show you a subpar photo now can I? so let me paint you a picture with my incredible word description instead. Prize #3.......Is a rare thing of beauty that will glisten and gleam, in it's aura of delicacy as it encircles your neck, declaring this one fabulous fact about you...........yes it actually does have something to say. hahahaha that makes a few of you nervous, doesn't it?

Petra has a wonderfully fun giveaway going on over at her blog. To whet your apetite, here's some beads I just received from her all the way from across the pond, which of course makes them even more special.
Lookit that adorable fish, would you? these are little beads, the detail is amazing. And there's foreign rocks and seashells and seaglass. how cool is that?!
oh and Petra, these next pictures are for you
You see, we have these beautiful birds in the middle of nowhere, USA as well, but ours don't have quite the lush accomodations that yours are used to. And ours don't actually live at our house, or eat our people food or come into the house for a visit whenever they want. You've got a charmed life, I'm telling you. The peacocks not you, Petra.
So there you have it folks! Another couple of days to find out if you've won one of three, yes three!! Stupendous, Incredible, Magnificent prizes. ok, fine! a few more days till you find out if you've won some of my jewelry. Really, people, just humor me a little, would ya?
