Giveaway Time!

I have much to be grateful for this year...my health, my mother's health, my family's health, roof over my head, new babies in the family, etc.  I am very grateful that I am able to create jewelry, sell it, and donate the proceeds to Miracle Horse Rescue.  

I have stated in the past that I am technologically challenged...product of my age, I suppose (that is my excuse and I am holding to it!).  I post LOTS of links to my jewelry on Facebook.  Well, come January, Facebook will be policing postings from non-business pages and will "disallow" this type of "free advertising".  Not that I blame them...they are a business...but, I am starting over again with social media. So, I finally jumped on the bandwagon and started a Business Page.  I would love it if you "liked" that page ( link here) so you can continue follow my journey!

I had a hard time figuring out what to make for this giveaway, but I finally decided upon my favorite metal-related accessory - the bangle (spinner ring's are right up, there, too, but they require more sizing).  

So - here is a set of 3 solid copper bangles.




One bangle is made from 14 gauge solid copper, to which I added a solid sterling silver nugget bead.  The other two bangles are a hefty 10 gauge:  one has two twists, and the other has been heavily faceted with my hammer.  After soldering and forging, the bangles were given a bath in liver of sulfur, buffed, tumbled for hours for strength and incredible shine, and coated with museum wax to protect the patina.


The bangles measure approximately 2 5/8" in diameter (8" circumference).

How to Enter

If you'd like to be entered to win this set of bangles, here's how!

  28. By the way, no idea if I did this right! I've never commented on a blog and don't have a Google account or any of the other options. So I selected name/url. But I don't have a url and it wouldn't let me put my email there. Also, the autocorrect on my iPod wouldn't allow me to properly complete the captcha things. So I'm not exactly sure what happened!!! Sorry!!!

  35. So lovely! I have always wanted to do that twisty thing with the wire. You are a generous soul and I love watching your path. (And that Fretz hammer in your last post? My very favorite! Someday I would like to get more of those.) Enjoy the day. Erin
