if the sales aren't rolling in, why not give some earrings away?

Just a few short days ago at the Boston Open Market I decided that not enough people were leaving with my jewelry. So, it was time to give something away. My jewelry was begging to find a permanent home where it would be worn and not stored in anti-tarnish bags inside wine boxes. Adornment is the goal of jewelry, so how could I resist?

Up went the sign.....

Some lovely people signed up and hoped for the best. I numbered the entries, copied just the numbers down on some paper...

....folded them all up tight so I couldn't peak, and placed them in a lovely handmade chalice...

....and now, time to pick the number....

..........drumroll please.........

I promptly emailed the woman who was the seventh person to sign up.
And I discovered that the soon to be owner's name is Ellen, so no more mysterious #7.

Here is what she had to say in her reply to me:
"Wow, that's amazing; I never win anything! Thank you."
If memory serves, I believe she said this when she signed her email address into my book. So, I am happy to break her spell of losing!

I would like to thank Ellen for playing. I really enjoy packing up my pieces and sending them off to good homes.

Now you are wondering, what did she win? Well, here they are....

Poppy earrings in sterling silver and green aventurine. I am quite fond of this design and the green aventurine is just lovely. So many hues are captured in this stone from deep sea green, to turquoise and some teal. So Stunning.

There is only one pair left. I am fresh out of the beads and not sure when I will get to ordering more to make these again. The last pair are available on etsy, so if you hurry on over you can get the last pair of poppy earrings with this stone. Just click on the image above to be directed to my shop. And because I am still in the give-a-way spirit I will ship them for free if you mention this blog in the message to seller at checkout.
