Celebration Giveaway....


Champagne Glasses

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...

A small sample of my components...
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.

Lesley

  1. I absolutely love anything a bit different or unusual. I recently pursuaded hubby to buy me a sterling silver nurses belt buckle, the old fashioned sort, all ornate and gorgeous! Those sort of finds get my heart pounding and my credit cards itching!

Well done!! And thank you for being such an inspiration to me of late! Claire xx

  3. Last Christmas, one of the gifts my daughter gave me was a pink/black macrame bracelet....Love it...
    So much so, l then asked her to make me some more.
    All pink/white....Different designs. In fact she made me four more. Wearing them at the weekends, people notice them, and comment. I have jokingly said to her, make me a lot more, l'd wear them all, on one forearm, and just sell them off at a fiver a time.....! :).
    But, l do like bracelets...Especially the chunky ones.....!

    Perhaps you'd like to take a peek at my daughters etsy shop.....Has'nt been going long.....

  9. I really like finding new stones that I've not used before in my pieces....hehehe I'm typing like I've been doing this forever.... I've been making jewelry about a year or two now. I started out just beading with elastic cord and plastic beads.... A couple of weeks ago I bought a copper disk and actually made designs on a component that I incorporated into a project I was working on. Wallah, a whole new look. So right now at this moment I am loving some components....I still love to find great beads too.....can't forget about those beads, stones, gems.......

  11. Following The Gossiping Goddess on Google....so excited. I can't wait to see what I can learn from your site....thanks for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Hmm, I like a lot of things, but I seem to buy a lot of pendants and charms. I've been meaning to branch out and buy some connectors too, maybe one of these days! Oh, my email, should you need it, is melissa_trudinger at yahoo dot com.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Oh, and I recently started following your blog via Google Reader,

    ReplyDelete
  14. And I've followed your page on Faceblook too!

  15. COmponents are like potato chips - I CAN'T HAVE JUST ONE!!! lol....I like them all equally just like my children....lol

    ReplyDelete
  16. Congratulations, Lesley. Truly inspiring success story. I just received my order of components, and they are even more fabulous than in your photos. Each is a small masterpiece! Handmade clasps and buttons really get my heart beating.

    ReplyDelete
  17. From your shop, I love your bracelet bars! I just got my shipment from you, and I can't wait to make something great! I reaccly love connectors, also, because they are so versatile, earrings, clasp, pendent- whatever you want!

    ReplyDelete

  20. I fancy your toggles, but I love just about everything ;-D Some of your necklaces are to-die-for!!!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Not surprised re. the sales, but certainly congrats. I'm a follower already. My favorite piece from you has been your nandina charms--I kept those for ME! Components with texture are what grab me, especially leafy or curvy textures that are not centered (and kind of run off the page). Best of luck for many more sales in both shops.

    ReplyDelete
  22. You're already well-liked on FB.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I've been posting you all over Pinterest since my first order from you, too.

    ReplyDelete
  24. When I buy handmade components I favor toggles, but anything one of a kind or something I've never seen before is what I tend to buy. If I like a pieces I'll find a way to use it.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Congratulations, Lesley! That's a wonderful success story and makes me happy to hear it. I am wishing you many many more months and years of joyful making. Interesting question what's my favorite component. Over the last few months I've made zero jewelry but I'd have to say I like connectors because you can use them in so many ways.

    ReplyDelete
  26. CONTGRATULATIONS! I had no doubt you could and would do it my friend! I go ga-ga for charms and clasps and headpins, yep those are my favorites and if they are handmade then all the better!

  27. Congrats! I am so happy for you! You deserve the success. I love your disc beads. I want you to make more textures in your disc beads. And make them 20-25mm please so I can spend more money. PS~I hope I win!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I especially love versatile components,like two holed beads.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I always look for pieces I can use as focals in macrame bracelets, but I usually end up buying pendants just because I love them:) I would SOOOOO love to win something from your shop (either one!) - I've been a fan for along time. Love your style.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Hmmm... I wasn't a follower of your blog (gasp!) - but I am now! By email, too:)

  31. I copied your giveaway link to my FB page-Nancy Saccoccio. Thanks again!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I also shared this great giveaway with my jewelry FB page- Rising designs! Thanks Lesley!! Congratulations!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Congratulations on your success! I like them all; beads, handmade components and vintage anything. Really it's difficult to choose just one, but I have to say lampwork beads and metal components are what I spend the most money on.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Lesley, of all the reasons I need to open a shop, having a bead fund so I can buy your components is at the top of the list! I love the unique look of your pieces. For me, as a seed beader, your clasps are number one, but I do love the pendants and bracelet bars as well. I'm so very thrilled for your success, and wish you much more in the future!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Well, I also blogged on Rising Designs.blogspot.com, thus decreasing my chances-again.

  39. First of all...CONGRATULATIONS! As a hoarder, I mean collector, of your components, I can personally attest to how absolutly gorgeous every single item is!! My favorite...hmmm, I have two....I would have to say head pins and toggles! No wait...connectors....it is impossible to make a choice! Okay..toggles... seriously, I am so happy for you! :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. Pendants will always be my firstvlove, though buttons and clasps are second. Thank you for a great giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Congratulations Lesley - I have been watching your progress and think it's wonderful. You have every right to be proud. What I like the best -hmm - I guess it would be clasps because you can do so much with them. Then of course there would be beads!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Hi!!! Wonderful give away!!! Thanks, for the opportunity!!! I love earring components ...interesting dangles ...little nifty bits to dangle from a necklace, bracelet or earrings.
    I am now following your blog :))

    ReplyDelete
  43. Congrats on reaching 500 sales!
    I tend to drool over just about every component out there-can't help it I have a bead addiction! If I had to select one I would say toggle clasps, especially decorative ones that can be used as a focal piece. The larger, the better too.
    Thanks you for the awesome giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Congrats on reaching 500 sales. I love anything that you do. Your work is fantastic. As a jewelry maker I think nice clasps are my favorite thing. I don't work as much with focal beads but I love them and bracelet bars are awesome too. I am a FB follower and I also follow your blog.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I love natural stones. Usually the ones that catch my eye are cut and polished. I will post on my FB page. thanks for asking, this is a great idea.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Guessing by the amount of beads I currently have, I'd have to say that beads are my favorite jewelry component. Especially lampwork & ceramic beads!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I am a follower of your blog & have liked you on FB as well!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I like bead caps!!! crazy but true!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I just signed up to follow your blog

    ReplyDelete
  50. Clasps, headpins and charms. Love them! Especially clasps I think - it's so easy to just stick a generic, factory-made clasp on a piece and a handmade piece just makes all the difference. Yours, Jo's and green girl studios are my faves!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I just liked your Facebook page, too!

  52. Congratulations on a very successful first 6 months!!! I'm not playing since I won last time but I will put this on my facebook.

  54. I love all the components. If I had to choose just one I would have to say a the focal pieces. I just love them.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Congratulations! You are very talented!
    I love unusual and unique beads, clasps and buttons!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Wow! Thanks for this opportunity Leslie, very generous. I am crazy about bracelet bars! Its actually an obsession. I am hoarding so many artisan bracelet pieces right now, but I know I will eventually get to them. I just had to HAVE them! LOL

  70. Oh wow Lesley, has it been six months already? My how time flies! Congratulations! You know that I am one of your fans I love your components and my favorites are your toggles. I just love using them in my pieces. They set the piece off in my opinion. I really like using toggles on bracelets, they are easy to close and open with one hand.
    I also love all things beady, because without beady items I would have nothing to use those fabulous toggles on.
    Therese

    ReplyDelete
  71. Congratulations on your sales Lesley, they are well deserved!
    I think my favourite components are connectors :D

    ReplyDelete
  72. For my favourite component I have to say plain simply ... beads. Of all possible kinds. But mostly Art Beads.
    I really like colored cords, either waxed linen or waxed cotton.
    And I like to try new beads and components that I haven't tried before. Also what is different from what I just have used in my latest piece/pieces. Like at this time for instance, I have been working lots with seed beads lately. I bet I will use large beads in a few of my coming pieces. I know I long to use chain, haven't done that for a while. And I haven't used proper pendants either for a while, so ...

    ReplyDelete
  73. I also did a blog post about your giveaway.
    Therese

    ReplyDelete
  74. I am bonkers for connectors and for rings, glass, stone, metal, any type of closed ring or jump rings. I guess I just like the circle-y aspect of them, or shape-y rings, too!

    ReplyDelete
  75. BTW, I already follow your blog and like your FB page!

    ReplyDelete
  76. Hello, I love your components and I have also spread the word via facebook. I am also trying to tweet it...not real experienced at that but will get it out there for you.
    Thank you for this opportunity...many more years of success!

    ReplyDelete
  78. I love unique bindings, but when they aren't available I love clasps. :)

    ReplyDelete
  79. Hi Lesley - just ordered some of your beautiful clasps, urchins and bracelet bar. Also buttons I think. My favorite these days are flat bigger beads (connectors) that I can use with other art beads. I liked your FB and shared on it as well.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Hi, for me it has to be components.Oh how my finger gets itchy over beautiful clasp but then again, it becomes almost insane over a pendent...running back to my blog now to add a link ..
    This is an awesome give away and major congrats on your over 500 sales.

  81. I have "liked" your facebook page. I LOVE great toggle clasps. It's so hard to find something that's not just the same old boring toggle. I love a toggle that I can use front and center.

    ReplyDelete
  82. I'm a fan of anything with natural stone....and a necklace making newbie :)

    ReplyDelete
  83. How grand, Miss Lesley! I am so happy for you. Your components are so lovely, and I am so excited that I have some coming my way! I love bead caps of all kinds. I like to layer them. Links are fun too. And I am always seeking cool clasps. Thanks for the chance. Enjoy the day. Erin

  84. What a great milestone!
    I have to confess-charms get me every time. I love charms. Really. A lot. Come check out my stash :)

    ReplyDelete
  87. I'm a hoarder of bead caps...really nice, unique ones will always make me hit the buy button! I'm not sure why, but maybe because I think a gorgeous art bead, paired with the right bead cap, can make a perfect piece of jewelry all in itself!

    ReplyDelete
  88. New to making jewelry, but, when I see something that I know will thrill a friend or relative, I buy it or try to make it. Right now, the thrill is seeing how happy you can make someone special and know that you are also working towards
    doing better and learning.

    ReplyDelete
  89. I'm currently loving clasps.. the eye catching 'focal- in -their-own-right' kinda clasps... the ones that are just way too pretty to be a mere 'clasp' lol

    ReplyDelete
  90. Holy moly what a fabtabulously generous giveaway. ty so much for this awesome opportunity.
    This is gonna be a hard question to answer but here goes. I love charms, especially bronze ones don't know why but I do. But I am also crazy for polymer clay . I love to make my own beads. But I still but tons of beads or at least my husband thinks I do. Although I think I don't have enough beads. I am a beadaholic and need to attend bbb. lol....But I truly love all mediums and avenues of the craft. Guess I could ramble on forever but I will spare ya the grueling chore of having to read it... So bye for now and ty again for this absotively posilutely thrilling giveaway ....Happy Beading

  91. Wow, My Dream is to go to England. you see I was born over there but my parents came back to USA when I was just over 2 years old>>> so I have longed to go see where I was born at etc etc. One day hopefully I will get to do that. We lived in a little place called Kingslynn ( back in the late 50's) Anyways I was just thinking how wonderful this opportunity is , how marvelous it would be to win and actually recieve something from England. I am so happy to be able to enter this drawing.

  100. If I MUST pick one component,it has to be bracelet bars. Haven't come across anything artistic that makes my jaws drop! Hopefully that will inspire you to create some!!

  110. I guess my favorite thing would be unusual toggle clasps--toggle clasps are much easier for these arthritic fingers to get on and off. I'd love to win this pack because I see two very nice clasps but I'd find a use for the other components also.

    ReplyDelete
  111. I also Pinned this and posted on Facebook--hope I win.

    ReplyDelete
  112. Wonderful giveaway Lesley! And congratulations on your first six months! I adore your bronze, its just amazing! I hope I win!!!

    I am a pendant addict, especially ceramic lately, but I also love the right metal - particularly bronze! I just love the feeling of a lovely pendant in my hand, the texture and weight of it!

    I posted to Facebook! Thank you again for this lovely giveaway!

  113. I like jewelry components that are unique; that's why I like your work- it's beautiful, well designed, creative, and fun. Your components make it easy to create designs for jewelry.

    ReplyDelete
  114. As a new designer, I am slowly building up a stock of unique components. I have drooled over your Etsy offerings many times, Lesley, and your wonderful PityParty sale finally compelled me to spend some of my meagre budget LOL. I had intended to purchase clasps, my greatest weakness (as I cannot make them very well)... but of course, I couldn't pass up a couple of pendants, a charm, a bracelet bar... Let's just say I shall be well provisioned with OOAK goodies!

    Congrats on reaching an important business milestone, Lesley. I'm certain it is just the beginning of a long and fruitful Etsy relationship.

    ReplyDelete
  120. Oh yeah, and I'm a follower of your blog -- love it!

    ReplyDelete
  121. hard question to answer! I guess my favorite component is one that can be used as a focal, either at the center or side of a necklace. That would include pendants, rings and clasps.

    ReplyDelete
  122. I've always liked charms, but love my bronze rings which arrived yesterday! Have shared on personal fb page and business page too.

    ReplyDelete
  123. Oops- need 2 comments as shared on 2 fb pages..

    ReplyDelete
  124. it changes, depending on what is the inspiration for what I am working on- so it can be the focal or something different in a bead or bead cap, the clasp can also be so great, that it has to be used in the front! I guess the answer would be that one unique piece and you certainly have a great selection of those!

    ReplyDelete
  125. COngratulations Lesley!!! This is so awesome!

    My favorite component with be connectors...versatile enough to be used in anything I like!

    Once again, hearty congrats :)

  131. Of late, I am consumed by connectors.... have been surfing the Goddess and all your links for inspiration and creative uses of them. I've been fascinated by the metal clay process, but for now intimidated by the care and attention needed to create beautiful pieces like yours! Congrats on your anniversary!

  133. Even though I make lampwork beads, it has to be lampwork beads! I can't resist buying other poeple's - they provoke an emotional response in me!
