Thursday Giveaway...

This week, one lucky winner will claim this stash of Chinese crystal beads. These sparkling treasures come courtesy of the fine folks at Auntie's Beads. The assortment of beads include: a long strand of copper crystal rounds, a strand of copper-colored rondelles, a strand of aqua rondelles with an AB finish, a strand of light amethyst rondelles with an AB finish, two Subtle Sapphire Diamond rectangular pendants, and two Golden Shadow faceted coin pendants. With these glittering crystal components, it's true that a little goes a long way – BUT the great thing about these particular pieces is that they are an inexpensive alternative to other crystals on the market. Their refractive qualities are so impressive that I've even heard people refer to them humorously as "Chinovski Crystal Elements". With these great prices, it's easy to indulge your inner Diva and "bling" it out as much as you want without sacrificing your wallet. CLICK HERE to check out Auntie's Beads full selection of Chinese crystal.

To win these Chinese crystal beads is easy! All you have to do is leave a comment on this blog post WITH your favorite color of Chinese crystals from the Auntie's Beads website. One lucky winner will be randomly selected from the comment section of this post on Monday (September 6th) at midnight EST. Anonymous comments won't score this prize, so be sure to include your name and email address if it doesn't already appear next to your comment. Don't forget to include your favorite color of crystal to be eligible to win! This giveaway is open to all participants, including international readers.

Bonus Points: How bad do you want these crystals? If you're seriously lusting after these pretties, you can earn additional entries to win by blogging, updating your Facebook page, and/or Twittering about this Thursday Giveaway. Don't forget to add you act of social media kindness as a SEPARATE comment to this blog post for your extra shot at winning these sparklies.

I love Auntie's Beads! They are always surprising me.
I would say that the beaded beads are intriguing to me. I am not of a mind to do that myself but it would add a lot of texture and sparkle to a piece. I like the plum dorado the best for fall, okay, for anytime!
Enjoy the day!

Melodie said...

Way too many choices to pick just one!! First there are the emerald rondelles, and then the deep red velvet rounds. Then I looked at the tanzanite barrels and the blue and plum pendant. Now I'm in real trouble cause ther is still the metallic plum dorado bicones and beeaded bead and the plum dorado twists. And not to leave out anything, I have to include the sapphire angel teardrops. Whew!

yogavq said...

Oh I love them all, I always have a hard time choosing.

Oh Andrew, these beads are just gorgeous! As you know, I don't toss my hat in the ring every week - but these are calling out my name!

I went to the site and I could not narrow it down to just one - I suppose if I had to, it would be the blue and purple ones - but those red velvet ones also caught my fancy - again, these are just gorgeous!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend and I enjoyed your long post. Now that I know you are saving up your wisdom for a cookbook, I'll stop badgering you every time I see something yummy appear on the site!

Hugs

Very nice colour combo.

I think my favourite colour among those I saw in the shop must be Plum Dorado or Opaque Plum. Coral Gold Luster and Royal Blue & Plum looks very nice too.

Как говорилось на Seexi.net Свекруха читает любую специфичную литературу, при чем, все что ей дают,то и читает, все подряд,всякие индусские,изотерические и любую лобуду. Потом начинает устраивать мне груз прграмму про третий глаз, какие то каналы и любую чушь.Я постараюсь делать вид,что мне неинтересно, при чем мужа так не грузит. А грузит меня когда благоверный общается со свекром. Я и грубо ей заявить не могу,что мне это ни нужно, сегодня уже сделала морду кирпичом, а она все точно еще ссыт в уши. Заходим раз в 4 месяца,и будь моя воля,вообще б не ходила, но благоверный обидится. Выхожу с опухшей головой. Как быть, я так как не прошу ее перессказывать мне эти книги. И уязвить не хочется, ну и терпеть нет сил уже..Мне в последнее время может показаться на первый взгляд что у нее уже сдвиг по фазе пошел, пока этой фигней не страдала, была норм. тетка, и поговорить приятно было..
