Allegory Gallery Giveaway: One...

To celebrate the opening of the Store, I wanted to do a series of giveaways. It's just my little way to thank everyone out there who is helping make this dream a reality.

If you help me make Allegory Gallery take flight, you might get this winged-themed selection of components! One lucky winner will be score this collection of pieces including a mixed-media piece from Heather Wynn-Millican, a bronze coin pendant from me, a ceramic wing pendant from Melanie Brooks of Earthenwood Studio, a shibuichi Rumi bird pendant from my family at Green Girl Studios, a sterling silver bird pendant from Paula Best (these are no longer available outside of her finished jewelry), a borosilicate lampwork glass bird from Dan Eister, and two vintage-inspired brass stampings from Ornamentea.

To enter to win is easy! All you have to do is help get the word out about the Allegory Gallery Fundraiser! The fundraiser is a really great way to help get an artist-run business off the ground and the doors open, while earning some really cool thank you prizes! It's just like PBS drives or Kickstarter, just DIY! You can blog about it, Tweet about it, or update your Facebook profile about it. Any acts of social media kindness are welcome! Work your mojo! Once you've shared the Allegory Gallery Fundraiser with your social media outlets of your choice, report back here and add your link as a separate comment. (Make sure you include a link back to the Fundraiser!) One will be randomly drawn from the comment section next Friday (August 19th) at midnight EST. It's that easy! This giveaway is open to all readers, including international ones!

Bonus Points: Want an extra crack at these jewelry components? Hop on over to Facebook and "LIKE" Allegory Gallery. CLICK HERE to visit the NEW Allegory Gallery Facebook Page! When you've successfully liked Allegory Gallery, come back by and leave a comment saying you have for your extra shot at winning!
