Want to win a bracelet made by a Saint?

Well, it is my last name! Ha!

Recently I put together four bracelets with materials from my jewelry stash. I am in my fourth year of blogging here, so I decided to offer them as a giveaway to thank everyone for visiting and reading, leaving me kind comments, and offering encouragement.

I am not a professional, just a hobbyist.

I started making jewelry a little over a year ago because I wanted to give a few items as gifts for birthdays and special occasions. First, I searched the internet for tutorials and articles on the tools and the basic skills I needed. Then I made several purchases that seriously cut into my crafting budget (it is not a cheap hobby). Finally, I started assembling earrings, bracelets, and pendants and found that I enjoyed the process. 



About the Bracelets
All of the bracelets are made with base metal components and findings and gemstone beads. The St. Dymphna, St. Rita, and Rosary bracelets are about 7 inches in length. The St. Bernadette bracelet can be adjusted between 6 and 7 1/4 inches. 


The St. Dymphna bracelet is made with round green aventurine and metal beads. 




The St. Bernadette bracelet is made with blue laguna lace agate melon shaped beads.




The St. Rita bracelet is made with fancy jasper round beads.




On the Rosary bracelet, the ten Hail Mary beads are blue crazy lace agate round beads. The Our Father bead is a fancy jasper round bead.




The Giveaway Details
There will be four winners, one for each bracelet. I will choose the winners the old school way, by putting the entries in a jar and pulling one name out. Each bracelet will have its own jar, so you have to decide which bracelet you want to enter to win. I will leave the giveaway open through Monday, March 31st. I will pick the winners Tuesday morning and announce them in a post that morning.


To enter to win, please leave a comment. In your comment, please specify which bracelet you want to be entered to win. 

I will only accept anonymous entries if you leave your name and a valid email address in your comment. 


Good luck! Check back April 1st for the results!

  7. So hard to choose! I think I have to go with the St. Rita bracelet. What a sweet future-heirloom it would be for my little Rita Mae (and, of course, to enjoy myself until she's big enough)!

  44. Hi Dear,
    I scan your web log, its extremely impressive, I love it.
    I have conjointly this connected web site.
    Bangle bracelets square measure the sort of bracelet that doesn't have a clasp, in order that they square measure simply slipped onto the gliding joint. a number of them square measure cuff bangle bracelets as a result of they need a gap at rock bottom that doesn't shut, and also the bracelet remains slipped on the gliding joint.
    you can see here for a lot of information: bangle bracelets

    Best Regards
    Elizabeth Mary
