Giveaway 3: Ian Gill, Custom Made Wooden Ring

 My sponsor, friend, and artist's assistant co-hort Ian Gill, is offering a giveaway of a custom made wooden ring!

When I'm not making large scale sculptures for other artist I spend my time making small little jewelry pieces for my Etsy shop where I often use reclaimed and recycled materials. In the time spent between making art and jewelry I can be found exploring the city and mountains around me. I like to share a lot of my discoveries on my blog as well as show you the creative process that goes into making special individual items for my Etsy shop.

His Giveaway:
Hand made wood ring out of purpleheart or bocote wood, made to order. 
With this giveaway, you will receive a custom made wooden ring out of either of these 2 beautiful natural woods.  You will get to discuss with Ian one on one what style, size, and wood choice you would like!

To Enter:  
Visit Ian's shop and leave a comment in this post letting me know which item in his shop is your favorite.
remember to include your email address with your comment so I can let you know if you've won!
