My new owl locket, how I love thee...

I have had my eyes on blueecho2's shop for a very long time, especially her lockets that she always has on sale that get swallowed up by buyers not long after she lists them. I was going to get one of her flower lockets, but got this instead:

So finally got to make myself a necklace and finished it last here it is! I love it so much and can't wait to wear it!

It's Giveaway Time!!

So I actually went 3 sales over my 50 sales goal for my giveaway when one customer bought four items in one day! That made me super-excited, so I am going to celebrate with a giveaway that is going to have not just one winner, but two winners - yay!  I have decided to giveaway one of my pieces that has sold a number of times in my Etsy shop and locally so here it is:  

Ta da! 

Item valued at $32.00 (USD)

This layered necklace is very reminiscent of the style of the Roaring Twenties, but has a slight modern twist to it. The large flower, which is made up of large Antiqued Brass Leaves, is definitely dramatic and accented with a few Dark Aqua Fire Polished Czech Glass Beads and a single Dark Brown Wood Bead. A simply elegant piece to wear for the times you want to show your more artsy side!

Necklace is made with Antiqued Brass Chain and all other components are also made with Antiqued Brass. Measures at 27 1/2" in length.

So you will have the chance to win the item that I have chosen and then the Second Winner's prize will be...dun dun dun...your favorite piece in my shop! So, even if you are not too fond of the Star Flower necklace, you will want to enter this giveaway, you see!
