A Necklace Giveaway

Remember this post, where a group of us took jewelry from each other and remade it into new pieces?

Well, in the spirit of the season, I've decided to have a giveaway of one of the necklaces, a collaboration between myself and Johanna Rhodes of Fire Phoenix Creations.  It's a long, 32" necklace without a clasp (it's fits right over your head), featuring handmade paper beads and a filigree butterfly.  I wired it with heavy-gauge aluminum wire and added opal green glass beads.

Leave a comment to win for one chance (and if you don't have a blog, leave an email so I can find you!), and get another point by blogging about the giveaway.

Drawing will be held Friday, December 10th, around 2pm!


Lori Anderson creates jewelry for her web site, Lori Anderson Designs, and writes the blog An Artist's Year Off.  She's also a contributor to Art Bead Scene.
