Thursday Giveaway...

This week, one lucky winner will snag these coral-colored Sari print ceramic components courtesy of Chinook Jewelry. They're made of porcelain with a semi-transluscent glaze on the fronts and backs. I love the fabric-inspired motif with its graceful, floral arabesques. This set of components would be perfect for making a bracelet and a pair of matching earrings. You can check out more examples of ceramic goodies from Chinook Jewelry on Mellisa's website or on her Etsy shop. You can also check out her blog for even more insight into her work.

Curious about what else Mellisa has been up to? She recently started a new venture called, Bead Show Travel. It's an online resource for making travel arrangements for bead shows across the country. Be sure to check out the comprehensive Bead Show Calendar and check out the helpful hints on how to plan for a successful buying experience. CLICK HERE to visit the site.
To win these lovely ceramic components, all you have to do is leave a comment on this blog post. It's that easy! One lucky winner will be randomly selected from the comment section of this post on Monday (October 18th) at midnight EST. Please leave your name and contact information if it doesn't already appear next to your comment. This giveaway is open to all participants, including international readers!

Bonus Points: Do you really want this set of beautifully patterned ceramic pieces? If so, you can earn additional entries by blogging, updating your Facebook page, and/or Twittering about this Thursday Giveaway. Don't forget to add your act of social media kindness as a SEPARATE comment to this blog post for your extra shot at this set of ceramic lovelies.

Hope everything went well yesterday. 1 sq ft of skin boggled my mind. I had no idea.

Also thanks for the info about the Tucson shows. Being new to this, I hadn't ever heard about any of it (in fact, at first I thought that shows plural was a typo -- HA). WOW! Would I love to go there and esp love to play w/ you & Kate McKinnon. It sounds so inspiring. Hmmmm... --Sally
