First giveaway!!

I am so excited to announce our first ever giveaway!

I've gone through my beads and picked out pieces I've been saving, favorites, fun stuff, and unique things, and put together a kit to send to someone lucky. :) My theme for this first time around is "winter":

Let's see... We have:
- a string of milky blue glass beads
- a handmade ceramic snowflake pin I bought from an artisan at a craft show last fall
- two large textured acrylic rounds
- four pale stone rondelles
- one lovely quartz crystal point
- two white biwa (stick) pearls
- about a foot of white enameled chain
- six vintage acrylic tiger's eye-like beads (I've been saving these for something special!)
- eight faceted amazonite rounds (these are to die for!)
- two fun acrylic buttons
- one beautiful white enameled filigree
- five rose quartz and six blue quartz matte-finished spear beads
- two large blue lucite lilies
- six white and two light blue lucite baby's breath beads (some of my favorites!)
- five mother of pearl discs
- two very pale blue Swarovski crystal briolettes

To enter, simply leave a comment below. :) You can get up to two extra entries by reblogging and/or tweeting this giveaway on your Twitter (please leave a second and third comment with links).

I will be out of town on an emergency roadtrip at the end of next week, so the lucky winner will be announced on the evening of Thursday, January 13. This means we have five days to spread the word!

Good luck, everyone! :D

Very pretty components, the softness of delicately falling snow and comfy warmth of a crocheted wrap. #1 post rarely wins, right? Keeping my fingers crossed! I ♥ your "Wanted" post(er) ;)

All the blues and whites do remind me of winter. Don't know anything about tweeting since I am so wordy it's hard to limit myself to short sentences, but I will be happy to promote your giveaway and your blog anyway I can. :-)

What a fun giveaway! You should really join the Bead Soup. This is exactly the sort of thing that would make for a good swap, just throw in a special clasp! But I would love to be counted in your giveaway!
Enjoy the day.

those are beautiful - I love the colors. It's snowing outside my window now - white and blue are the colors I see, a reflection of your beads!
