Enchanted Adornments: Giveaway No. 1: Mermaids!
Cynthia Thornton, of Green Girl Studios, has written an amazing book called Enchanted Adornments: Creating Mixed-Media Jewelry with Metal, Clay, Wire, Resin & More, and it will be released on November 1, 2009! I am really excited about the release of this book because Cynthia and her family, are all amazingly talented and this book will totally rock the hizzouse. But not only that, I contributed a piece of jewelry for the Gallery section of the book, and am really super excited for all of you to see it!
The Green Girl Studios team, graciously donated 8 small packages of beads to be randomly given away, in honor of the big book release, to my little blog! How cool is that! This week will be the first of the 8 givaways. This first package of beads contains 6 pewter, and 1 Bronze metal clay pendants/beads, in the Mermaid theme! (Each giveaway will have a different theme!)

Funky Monkey Girls,
My name is Jordan, I'm 18 years old and I've recently become very interested in beading and making jewelry... it's so much fun! I was googling, searing for design ideas, and came across your blog. Wow! You have got some talent! I love all of your pieces.. incredible. I was wondering if I could ask you a few questions.. Are there any particular websites that you recommend for buying beads and supplies? Lots of your beads are so unique. Also, where did you learn all the different techniques? Did you take classes at any point?
I would love to hear back from you! My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks so much,
ps- I love these charms.. I have a mermaid fetish!
