Thursday Giveaway...

This week, one lucky winner will take home an assortment of ceramic components from Golem Studio! Golem Studio is a family-owned and operated business, headed by couple, Vladislav Ivanov and Kremena Ivanova. They live in Veliko Tarnovo, Bulgaria where they make their highly graphic and often brightly colored ceramic pieces.

I love the highly decorative patterns and think that these would be perfect for a stunning summer design. To see more examples of Golem Studio's work, CLICK HERE to visit their website and CLICK HERE to visit their Etsy page.

Will you be at the Bead & Button show this year? Golem Studio will be showing with Marsha Hedrick of Amazing Porcelain in booth 111. If you are a retail customer, CLICK HERE to complete a short survey and receive a $5 discount coupon to be used at the show! (Marsha is also hosting a survey with a chance to win a giveaway AND a discount CLICK HERE to enter!)

One lucky winner will be randomly selected from the comment section of this blog post on Monday, (June 6th) at midnight EST. Make sure to leave your name if it doesn't already appear next to your comment for easy verification. (Anonymous comments without a name will unfortunately not qualify to win this great prize!) This giveaway is open to all participants, including international readers.

Bonus Points: You can earn extra chances of winning this beautiful set of ceramic beads by blogging, updating your Facebook page, and/or Twittering about this Thursday Giveaway.
