Prototype Giveaways

You may have noticed that I'm constantly experimenting with new materials and forms.  From time I end up with a prototype that I really LOVE, but it's not quite good enough to put up for sale.  Perhaps it's just a tiny bit crooked, or the colors aren't as smooth as I would like them to be.  But I really hate to throw stuff out.  So, I decided I would give them away, if anyone wants them.

To be in the running for this little gem, just leave a comment* on the Facebook post, here:

Here are some more pix of this week's giveaway item:  

This is a pendant (no chain, just the pendant), that measures about 2" on a side.  It was inspired by my lifelong love of Art Nouveau and Art Deco, as well as my great affinity for Mission-style and Arts & Crafts furniture.  It is made with 2 little brass plates sandwiching a rough amber-colored polymer clay layer.  And I've poured red resin in the center to act as little windows!

The 'bail' is brass wire pounded into an organic shape, and the whole thing is held together with my favorite little brass nuts & bolts.  As with all my work, the metal is nice and grungy :)

To be in the drawing for this piece, just LEAVE A COMMENT on its Facebook posting (here: )

But, if you are so inclined, you can MULTIPLY YOUR CHANCES by:

1.  Inviting other folks to "Like" my Facebook page here:

or you can

2.   "Like" and SHARE the posting on Facebook.

For every new "Like" you bring me (one of you will have to let me know, of course :), I'll put your name in the hat again.  If the person you invite is interested in the giveaway as well, please have them comment on the item's FB post.  Thanks!
