Magic, a False Spring, and a Give-Away

Today I took a nice, long walk in the rain. Normally, walks in the rain don't turn people on, but it's January! Rain in January is such an odd and splendid thing that I had to enjoy it. Everything smelled green and wet and glorious. There was even some mist rolling around that lent an air of magic to my meanderings.

That probably explains the magical feel of the necklace I came up with for a give-away. I'm celebrating my first 10 days open, during which I have snagged almost 140 views, 20 shop hearts, and 3 item hearts. That probably sounds modest to all you lovely ladies who have been open for years now, but it's enough to make me happy.


So, here it is, Violet Victorian Scrollwork. Purple-colored copper wire serves as the base to display scrumptious cherry quartz,pink crystals, and and purple and pink glass beads. The pendant (about 1 1/4" around) is stoneware and purple recycled glass by ArtisanClay. At about 21" long, the necklace is "Matinee" length.

So, what do you need to do to win? Well, there are 5 ways to enter! You can do just one, or all 5 for extra chances to win!
