Birthday Week Giveaway: Day Four...

Today marks the fourth giveaway in the Birthday Week series! Up for grabs are a selection of ceramic buttons and beads from Lisa Peters Art.

One lucky winner will score this small treasure trove of ceramic goodies courtesy of Lisa! I love the earthy feeling of Lisa's work. She's got a knack for capturing the organic feel of stoneware clay and creating some really interesting pieces. For instance those big buttons could easily end up being clasps in a chunky bracelet or incorporated into "conversation" rings with wire or a rivet post. I've seen some really awesome, edgy Steampunk-esque leather cuffs using Lisa's ceramic buttons and cabochons. I fell in love with her skull beads when I was set up next to her at a show in New York. (You can see an example of what I did with one HERE and see the ones available in my shop HERE.) Admittedly, it wasn't the most bustling of shows, so we had plenty of time to get to know each other and keep entertained. All weekend, she'd crack me up. I also found out that we share a few things... like being pack rats "fond of things" and an alma mater – the School of Visual Arts in New York City.

Do make sure to swing by Lisa's Etsy shop or her de-stash Etsy shop. Both are filled with incredible finds at reasonable prices. Lisa has also recently opened a Big Cartel shop, which is also worthy of checking out. I definitely recommend swinging by her shops to see more examples of her work.

To win these beads is super simple. Just leave a comment on this blog post. One person will be randomly selected from the comment section of this blog post on Monday (September 27th) at midnight EST. Please leave your name and contact information if it doesn't already appear next to your comment. This giveaway, like the others this week, are open to all participants, including international readers.

Thanks to Etsy I'm just starting to enjoy the beauty of ceramic beads. I've really wittled down the types of materials I allow into my work, but ceramics are not only sustainable, they're gorgeous! I could spend hours just browsing, and Lisa's designs are awesome!

Would love to win Lisa's pendants and buttons. Her work is always fun to use to inspire my designs. Hope this birthday week is providing some fun for you since you certainly have for your followers.

Lisa's beads are incredible. And Lisa's an incredible person. I've long been an admirer of her work, and I've incorporated lots of her pieces into my designs. I got to meet her at B&B in 2009, and she's an absolute hoot! I'm hoping to get to see her again at the 2011 B&B, and I'm sure I'll be adding more of her goodies to my stash.

Happy birthday, Andrew!! :-)
