Thursday Giveaway...

This week, one lucky winner will claim the prize of five fine pewter pieces courtesy of my family at Green Girl Studios! The winner will take home one rose bead, a rose charm that reads, "Life is a rose, beware the thorns", a mermaid button, an owl family charm, and one faceted nugget bead. All of them are lead-free and crafted out of the finest materials. The possibilities of incorporating these components into one's designs are endless! I think they're perfectly whimsical and utterly magical!

If you're in Milwaukee between June 10th - 13th, drop by the Bead & Button Show and visit us at our booth (spaces 1205 and 1207) to say hello and check out the entire selection including these new winged designs and new underwater themed components.

To enter to win these lovely goodies, all you have to do is leave a comment on this blog post. One winner will be randomly selected from the comment section of this blog post on Monday (June 7th) at midnight EST. Make sure to leave you name if it doesn't already appear next to your comment for easy identification. Good luck!

Bonus Points: Want an extra chance to win? You can earn an extra entry by blogging, updating your Facebook page, and/or Tweeting about this Thursday Giveaway! Don't forget to add your act of social media kindness as a SEPARATE comment. (If you lump everything together, it'll be counted as only one entry.)

andrew,

i love the beads chosen for the giveaway...and, i already know mypiece's title it would be: Rose; A pathway of thorns... what's really unique about this giveaway,is that my 19yr. old son,had a tattoo put on his inner[lower] forearm,the tattoo is of a rose,the roses stem has thorn's.below,the rose is the word MOM.
when asked by anyone,why he had the tattoo done,he answers with this:"the rose is to honor my mom,she married young,was abused,left with 2 kids,and a trshbag of clothes,put herself through nursing school,and started from scratch again.this time it was done on her own,was engaged,he ran when she said pregnant,gave me a brother,then was diagnosed with severe Narcolepsy with sever cataplexy,2yrs. later diagnosed with ra,she lost everything,took almost 12yrs. for her to win.my tattoo the rose is my mom,each thorn represents one of the struggles in her life that she faced and conquered. seeing your giveaway,was by chance or was it...
