i thought it high time to have a brooch/pendant giveaway!
the first round of finished ones are all finally listed in the shop {minus the brooch my oldest son chose to keep} and there are quite a few almost ready to go. i've really enjoyed making them and appreciate all the feedback and comments that i've had from my lovely readers {& customers} ~ thanku!

to enter, follow {if you are new!} and please take a squizz at the brooches and pendants that i have listed and leave a comment saying which is your favourite. {copying links might be the easiest way, given the titles that i've used}.
for 2 chances to win you can spread the word about the giveaway on your blog or tweet away ~ just mention which you chose to do, or add a link, in your comment.
the winner can chose the pendant or the brooch shown here.
will be drawn {by the second littlest fingers in our house} on wednesday august 5.
good luck and thanks again :)

Lovely work! My favorite are the brooches, especially Perspective http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=27625723

It would be fantastic pinned to a scarf or corduroy bag.
