I am so excited right now, probably more than I should be.
Welcome to the Soapsuds and Doodles' first giveaway!
As I've been mentioning over the previous few posts, I'll be giving away jewellery that's been handmade by my mother and designed by me.
One thing about the way my mother makes jewellery is her perfectionism, so I can tell you that the workmanship on these is pretty good, and if you live in the same country, you could even bring them back for fixing, she has very kindly told me.
So! Let me show you guys what you could win:
1) Long, gold, four leaf clover necklace
This sort of the same design of necklace that I was wearing in this post and I have to tell you, it's really beautiful. For the giveaway version, my mother used two chains of varying thickness, which gives it an even nicer weight than the one I own and it sat beautifully on my neck when I tried it on.
The little four leaf clover stones are from a vintage bracelet she took apart, and they're semi-precious stones. For example, the brown one in the picture is a tiger's eye and there's some quartz on there as well.
The whole thing is one long strand which you could loop over two or three times if you like, and goes great with plain tops or dresses with simple necklines.
2) Monkey Wrench Earrings
These adorable silver wrenches have a slightly oxidised detail and are adorned with a deep green crystal. They're super delicate and super fun.
3) Ruler Earrings
These ones have large blue crystals and they look really cute on. The chain is also a nice, delicate chain with links of varying sizes and I love how it complements the markings on the ruler.
4) Hammer Earrings
Finally, you get these brass-coloured hammer earrings with a red crystal - the finish makes it look more old school, I feel and these are more subtle on than the other two.
I cannot tell you how excited I was when I found all the little tools because I think they're so cute and unusual, and the earrings swing very nicely when worn. SO. If you guys would like to win them, here are the rules!
1) The giveaway is open from today to midnight next Tuesday, the 14th of September. So, roughly a week. Any comments that come in after midnight on Sept 14th won't be counted!
2) You can enter one of two simple ways:
a) Leave me a comment on which piece of jewellery here you like best and why. Fill in the option "name/url" and under the "URL" blank, leave me your email address so that I can contact you if you win. This option will allow me to get in touch with you much more quickly and with fewer steps on your part as well!
b) If you are uncomfortable with leaving your email information on the blog, leave me a comment on which piece of jewellery here you like best and why. Then, check back on the 15th of September, Wednesday, when I have announced the winner and I will tell you how to email me directly so that again, I can send you your prize!
3) If the winner does not get their contact information to me by the 18th of September, I'm afraid I'll have to give the prize to someone else who commented (because, y'know, it's not fair to leave everyone waiting around, if you get my drift).
4) One comment per person only!!! The winner will be picked via random.org, through a completely randomised process.
That's it! All you have to do is leave a comment!
