common thread give-away


I have been invited to participate in the Common Thread Give-Away Artist of the Month for February. The Common Thread group is made up of artists who support each other by linking to our blogs and/or websites. The first Monday of each month an artist posts a creative endeavor. Readers are encouraged to leave a comment to be entered into a random drawing to win the give-away posted. It is our way of thanking you for following our blogs/websites and supporting our work.

For my first ever give-away, I am offering a free pair of my handmade earrings. They are 2 inches in length with a silver filigree at the bottom. The beads are glass faceted beads; the bottom one is a very muted smoky color with flashes of purple, depending on how the light hits it. It is separated from a smaller glass purple tinged bead by a Swarovski crystal ring. It is finished off with a pearl at the top. The beauty and sparkle of the earrings is difficult to capture in a photograph.
