As evidenced by my lack of blog posts (and comments on other blogs, sorry!!), I've been on a bit of a vacation for the past week. I didn't even go anywhere special, I just took Wednesday - Friday off from my day job so I could have a super-long Labor Day weekend.
It was delightful. Apart from going into NYC on Wednesday night to see my husband perform at Comix, I mostly stuck around the house, reading and making jewelry.
Which brings me to the important part: Among the jewelry I was making was a necklace for Mischievous Kitty Jewelry's September Giveaway!
How cool is this? It's a copper-plated leaf. An actual leaf. Chrysanthemum, to be precise. The green and peach beads are unakite, and the red beads are carnelian. I picked those colors because the combination made me think of how the trees look when the leaves first start to change.
Here's a picture of the whole necklace. It's 20" long and the chain is copper. Perfect for autumn, right?
So, here are the rules:
- The contest is open until this Friday, September 10. All entries must be made by midnight, EST.
- All you need to do is visit my Etsy shop, then come back here and leave a comment telling me what your favorite piece is.
- You can get an extra entry by spreading the word about the giveaway. If you have a blog, you can include a link to the blog post in a separate comment below. If you post about it on Facebook, just remember to tag "Mischievous Kitty Jewelry" in your post and tell me about it in a separate comment on this blog.
- I will select a winner on Saturday, September 11, using the random number generator on Random.org.
P.S. Just for stopping by, here's a coupon code, good for 15% off any purchase in my Etsy shop and good through September 20, 2010. Just enter "Kitty15" in the "notes to seller" during checkout, and I'll send you a revised invoice!
