Share the Love inspired by the City of Love! Parisian Pinks Bead Lot Giveaway.

Parisian Pinks Beadlot Giveaway!!
I haven't done a giveaway in ages, so its well overdue.  So to share the love, I've gathered up a pretty lot of jewelry making goodies for a City of Love inspired giveaway.


It started with this collage pendant I made. The bezel setting is from HHH and it measures roughly 1 7/8" across and 2 1/4" long.  Done with vintage collage images in dusty pinks, its a nice centerpiece for a statement necklace.
Than I started gathering some beads in the color range of the pendant. There will be more, but many tried to run away while taking the photo. Theres an assortment of vintage plastic, faux pearls, glass and silver beadcaps.

All you have to do is leave a comment below, I'll pick someone at random on June 7th. If the winner is also one of my blog followers, they'll get an EXTRA suprise from me!!!

I was lucky enough to spend 2 weeks in France last spring, including a week in Paris. It is my favourite city in the world. Since then, I have been collecting pendants and charms with a Paris/French theme - I would love to have these - more reminders of my great trip.

Janice said...

I am a new subscriber to your blog. You are so talented and what I have seen so far is very inspirational!! I am a little intimidated by resin so I have yet to take the "plunge"! Thank you for the inspiration and for the opportunity to win this beautiful prize! Melody
