Double Celebration - Double Giveaway...!


SORRY - GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED

Remember a few weeks back when I said that I would have a giveaway if I reached 1000 sales in my component shop THEA too by new years eve...? Well, thanks to my wonderful customers that got blown out of the water and I reached my goal 2 weeks ago and I am absolutely thrilled and so grateful to everyone who supports my little venture.

So today's the day for that giveaway but, because I got there even earlier than I'd hoped and because it's nearly Christmas it's going to be a double giveaway with what I hope you'll agree are two great prizes up for grabs.

First up is a one of a kind necklace made by my own fair hands and featuring one of my bronze owl pendants which I've patinated a lovely verdigris colour...


This is the first time I've patinated one of these and I think he looks rather fine with this plumage. The necklace also features a gorgeous lampwork focal bead by the fabulous Mindy McGregor of Moogin Mindy which is accented with premium Czech glass flame beads and little lampies on a brass chain.


It's a long necklace that will slip easily over your head with a 28" chain and a further 3" drop for the pendant.


The second prize today is a set of leaf themed bronze components comprising a bracelet bar with real oak leaf impression, a leaf toggle clasp and a pair of ivy leaf headpins with a flame patina...


Think you could do something with these...?


So, two lucky people will walk away with one of these prizes each and it could be you because all you have to do to enter is leave a comment on this post. But there are are lots of ways you can increase your chances of winning too... Do any of the following and leave an additional comment each time and you will get an extra entry for each one:
  • Share this giveaway on your own blog.
  • Share this giveaway on your Facebook pages, Google+, Twitter etc.
  • Become a new follower of 'The Gossiping Goddess' - see sidebar.
  • Become a follower of my Facebook page.
  • Follow me on Pinterest
  • Like my Etsy shops THEA jewellery and THEA too.
  • Anything else of you can think of to spread the word.
Don't forget to leave a separate comment for each method to maximise your chances though!

The giveaway will close at 8am GMT on thursday 20th December 2012 and I will randomly select and announce the winners later in the day.

So all that remains is for me to once again say a huge thank you to everyone who has made 2012 such a great year and I hope to see more of you in the coming year. I hope you are all enjoying the run-up to the festive season and good luck with the giveaway!

Lesley

  27. Oh Lesley, I'm so very happy for you. It's easy to see how your goal has been reached, you truly have a gift with bronze clay. I adore that necklace, and I agree, the patina is a pretty touch to your sweet owl. I'm thrilled to try to win one of these, since I have one of your pieces now. (I fondle...um play with it quite a bit, waiting to see what it wants to be). Ok, I'm off to do my stuff.
