On August 23rd it will be six months since I opened THEA too my Etsy component shop, with absolutely no idea whether I'd sell anything and very little in the way of targets or expectations. In the event I was blown away by the response in those first few weeks and it took a good while to stop myself thinking that the bubble would burst at an moment. I've had to work hard to develop my range and keep my jewellery design going at the she time (those of you with shops will no all that that entails) but I've had a great time doing it.
A few weeks ago I was thinking about all this and what a great achievement it would be if I could celebrate six months of trading by reaching 500 sales...was that possible? Well, thanks to my wonderful and ever growing band of customers and friends who have encouraged, inspired and cajoled me, I sailed past that figure last weekend just a little ahead of schedule and I'm 'over the moon' about it. It's still early days I know but I think it's cause enough for a little celebration so, I'm having a giveaway with the chance to win £25 (approx. $40) worth of goods from one of my shops. The winner can either choose components to the value of £25 to use in their own creations...
Or they can choose a piece of ready made jewellery - entirely their choice. The pictures are just examples of my work and the winner will be able
to choose anything from one of the shops to the value of £25 or, a higher value
and pay the balance.

All you have to do to enter is answer a question for me... just leave a comment here telling me what your favourite kind of jewellery component is. Are you passionate about pendants, crazy for clasps, bonkers about bracelet bars...or is there something else that gets your fingers twitching uncontrollably over that 'buy' button? Whatever it is I'd like to know.
Once you've done that you can get extra entries by sharing this giveaway on your own blog, Facebook, Twitter etc. or by becoming a follower of The Gossiping Goddess or liking my Facebook page. Be sure to leave a comment for each thing you do to get you extra entries.
The giveaway will end at 8pm British Summer Time on Saturday 25th August and I will select a winner using Random.org.
So good luck and thank you very much for coming on this journey with me.
