Last week, I hit one of my milestones of a hundred and one fans for my Skunk Hill Studio
Facebook page. To celebrate, I thought I'd host a giveaway. No puppies, I promise! None of those in residence here, without or without their spots. What I do have a is ton of beads (sort of spot-like), so I thought I'd give some of them away in two separate prizes.
In the first prize, the beads are cleverly disguised as a pair of earrings. I've selected this pair at left. They're a pair of openwork freeform beading using right angle weave and peyote stitch with Vintaj antique brass ear wires and a $45.00 value. If you've followed my blog for a while, you might remember them from my January earring challenge
I personally think they're a lovely pair, and was tempted to keep them for myself. But, since I believe in the freedom of choice, I'll make you an additional offer. You're welcome to look through my Etsy store
- if you see another pair you prefer, favorite it on Etsy and let me know. If you win the earrings, then the one you marked is yours. If you favorite more than one, make sure you let me know which is your top choice!

The second prize is designed for my do-it-yourselfer friends, and also comes with a choice. The winner may choose either:
Kit Package A: including both my Lacework Bracelets
and my Corset Beads
kits mentioned in my last blog post. The prize will include both tutorials and all beads necessary to make a single-color lacework bracelet and two corset beaded beads.
Kit Package B: my book, Freeform Peyote Beading
and all of the beads necessary to make a bracelet similar to my Autumn Rain
. During my original bead selection for the piece, I divided all of my beads into four portions. One of each was used to make the bracelet, while I held the remain three of each in reserve. Earlier this year, I combined the three remaining kits into two, to make the bead packets a little more robust. So this is a very
limited edition kit. Both kits prizes have a $45.00 value.
If you have a preference as to which prize you win - earrings, kits or either - let me know. I'd really like the kits to go to someone who will use them. :)
Now that you know the prizes, here are the rules for entry:
- Since I'm celebrating my Facebook Fans, you need to be one to win. If you're not already a fan, it's not too late become one. :) Update: I'm already seeing a potential problem - if your Facebook profile name and Google profile name differ, please make sure there's an easy way for me to connect the two!
- You can gain chances to win by any of the following (up to, I think four, chances): Comment here on my blog and/or on my Facebook page. Tell me what you'd like best or what you'd like to see more of. Post about this on your blog or Facebook, and let me know that you've done so.
I'll do the drawing a week and a half from today, on Wednesday, June 27th.
And thank you all!
