Day 21 Giveaway with One Week Left

Good Morning (evening if you are across the sea) Everyone,

Today's giveaway is for something I am very proud of. I created this piece of jewelery by covering a polished stone with a blend of different polymer clay colors.  Once it was baked, I gently sliced through the clay and removed the stone.  I then strung this amulet on purple waxed linen using various purple beads to accent it.
I hope you like it and will enter to win this piece of jewelry that I am very proud of.  It is large enough to carry a few coins, or a special stone or two.  Or maybe you would rather store a love note inside.  The choice will be yours if  you are the lucky winner.
This giveaway is open World Wide.
**Mandatory Entry**
Post a comment to my question:

If you create art of any kind, what inspires your creativity?
(Thanks Julie for the question)

My Answer:

It depends on the material that I use.  If I am working on mixed media, then it is the vintage photos that I use that inspires me.  If I am working with yarn, it is the person for whom I am creating the object for, that inspires me.  If I am scrapbooking, it is the colors in the photo(s) that inspire me.

  1. Hi BrendaLea!

  2. I added a link to the sidebar
    Thank you so much for the chance to take part!!!

    Greetings from Russia,

  3. Wow...this is a lovely piece of jewellry. Very clever how you covered and then removed the stone. :-)

    What inspires me....other peoples creations. My daughters card and blog land is just heaven sent.

  4. Wow, looks like the only thing on the list I've not yet done is tweet this, so I copied and pasted your tweet and will go (hopefully, cause I've not tweeted this way before), after leaving your blog.

    Sent you email with copy of the email you and I sent each other on March 11, the day you posted I won. Hope you get it ok.

    What inspires me? Hum
    When it's someone I know I'm knitting or crocheting for their personality, their tastes inspire me.

    But, since most of my knitting and crocheting is for charity, I would say I'm inspired by their need; and so my crafts are functional inspiration.

    Happy Sunday

  5. If you create art of any kind, what inspires your creativity?

    I make wallhangings with textile and what I find in nature.
    Nature itself inspires me now. The colours and forms.

    I started making wallhangings inspired by the mother of a friend who made them very colourful. Mine are more nature coloured.

  9. Wow, I should hope you are proud of that! It's a technique I've never been able to make work. I blame the rocks.;) You've made it a triumph!

    What inspires me?!? Oooh, I just hate that question! Because it's just about everything. Hmm..Boredom's the winner, though. Nothing like a good loooong stretch of nothing interesting going on to make my sketchin' hand itch.

    And thus the internet kills my productivity.;) Ah well!


  10. Oh, and of course you know I'm following your blog!:D

  13. What a wonderful little amulet. Love the process you described of creating it. I would love to wear it with positive affirmations tucked inside.
    I find my creativity comes mostly from nature and from favorite magazines like Somerset Studio and cloth paper scissors.
