Jewelry giveaway -- you know you want this!

SO, you've gotten a week of Bead Soup and seen some amazing jewelry artists out there! There have been some fabulous giveaways out there (did you get in on the action?) and now that I'm done with organizing the party, it's MY turn!

If you remember, this was my soup and what I created. I've already sold the bracelet, so I'm going to be giving away the pendant. It's an amazing handmade lampwork glass bead with tons of Swarovski crystals dangling beneath and a sterling silver bail at the top, and it'll accommodate nearly any chain. Wouldn't it be great for fall (I'm really, REALLY looking forward to fall right now!)

Normally something like this would sell for $65 but you could win it for free!!!

Just leave a comment, and if you have a blog, post about it on your blog as well. You don't HAVE to be a follower, but wouldn't that be cool?

Good luck, and have an awesome, beadful day!


Lori Anderson makes jewelry for Lori Anderson Designs and also writes the blog An Artists Year Off.

  1. Please put me in your hat. January sounds perfect for the next party and I will definitely attend again- it was so inspiring and fun. You certainly boosted the number of followers on my blog with this event and I have met so many wonderful jewelers too because of it. Thanks again and again and one more time!!! Glad you are over your migraine. They are a bummer!!

  34. Your color choice of small crystals for the pendant is so different than what I would have chosen. That's the beauty and individuality of what we each see. The bead soup showed such diversity.
