Giveaway! Yes, that means this handmade necklace is FREE!

Well my dearest darlings, today is the day.
500th post day!

miniature book necklace! GIVEAWAY!

In honor or my 500th post, I have decided to reveal one of the new jewelry pieces I have been working on with my roommate/new business partner Scott. And beyond just revealing it to you... I am giving it away!
I have wanted to do a giveaway for a long time now, but needed just the right occasion. And I think my 500th post is the perfect timing for a fancy gift to you my friendly readers!

I have been working on creating a line of miniature book necklaces. I love books, and I love accessories. So what could be better than combining the two! I am working on some books that can be used as tiny sketchbooks, journals, and memory holders. I have lots of different styles in the works, so keep your eyes peeled for more postings ahead filled with all sorts of treats!

So, if you would like this necklace, just leave a comment on this post.
Make sure to include your name in the comment so I know who you are!
A week from today I will draw one of your names from a hat and reveal the winner of this new special book necklace!

This particular piece was carefully carved out of Padouk wood.
The pages were hand painted gold along the edges and hand sewn together with a golden brass colored thread. The chain is also brass colored.

I hope you like it! And if you don't end up winning this necklace, don't worry, there will be plenty more unique miniature book necklaces for sale in my Etsy shop very soon!

Wow moorea, you are a talented lady! That book is adorable.

You know I've only been making jewelry for about a year now, but you inspired me to open an Etsy shop and try selling it. I only started about a month ago or so, but it's fun! So thanks. :)

This is Edith for camp oh so many eons ago, by the way.

But good job coming up with something so simply elegant and unique. I love it!
