Thursday Giveaway...

This week, one lucky winner will take home the prize of a beaded brooch from Oregon-based beader and gardener, Cenya of the Emerald Window. Cenya has embellished a Steampunk-themed, stamped brass filigree with a mix of luscious seed beads and vintage watch parts. Be sure to check out her blog and her Etsy shop for more examples of her work.


This week, the winner will also take home a BONUS PRIZE! I recently placed in the Steampunk-themed, second annual Flex Your Creativity Contest from Soft Flex Company. One of my prizes was the Extreme Trio of flexible beading wire. These are some of my favorite colors and it comes handily in the Medium gauge, which is highly versatile in its application. The winner of the brooch by Cenya will also take home this set of 24k Gold, 92.5 Sterling silver, and Champagne coated beading wire!

To enter to win this lovely beaded brooch and set of Soft Flex Extreme Trio flexible beading wire is easy! All you have to do is comment on this blog post. One lucky winner will be randomly selected from the comment section of this blog post on Monday, (January 24th) at midnight EST. Make sure to leave your name if it doesn't already appear next to your comment for easy verification. This giveaway is open to all participants, including international readers.
