Congratulations to Maureen, whose entry number was chosen by random.org!
If you're in full-on holiday shopping mode, here's an idea for the women on your list (yourself included, of course)...perhaps one who is already looking forward to her spring wardrobe, the way I am now that the weather has turned chilly and gray in the mid-Atlantic states.
Diana Ferguson of Diana Ferguson Jewelry creates some of the most striking jewelry with paper elements that I've come across. You might remember her work from an earlier giveaway this season... to those of you who weren't lucky enough to win, I have good news! But first, let me show you the reason I know just how lovely Diana's jewelry is.
You see, before I agree to do a giveaway post, I check out the maker's website and products very carefully. I read reviews to make sure there is no negative feedback. Often I will arrange a barter instead of actual payment to write and promote the post as this gives me a chance to see an example of their work in person. I asked Diana to create a necklace to go with a specific outfit I planned to wear to a holiday party... the above photo is the result. Even her packaging is perfection! The necklace received such nice attention the night I wore it, and I can tell you with assurance that the Petals to the Metal pendant is not only durable, but lightweight and comfortable to wear.
Diana's petal making process is painstaking... she creates a digital pattern or collage, prints it on watercolor paper, cuts the shapes, combines them with anodized aluminum and jewelry grade resin, and assembles them to create a striking piece of statement jewelry... be it a pendant or pair of dangle earrings. She designs gorgeous paper cuff bracelets and makes beadwork and chainmaille jewelry too...
...and offers colorful pendant wire options.
Diana's Petals to the Metal earrings are available in three lengths: 2", 2.25" and 2.75". If you would like tips on choosing the right length for your face shape, check out this helpful post on A Well Styled Life.
Now about the giveaway! One U.S. resident will receive a pair of Petals to the Metal earrings of choice in the 2-inch length ($60 value). Have a look at the many patterns/colors that are available here: Fall | Winter 2016-17 Collection and here: Holiday | Resort Collection.
