Gailavira Jewelry Blog Giveaway! 25$ Store Credit!

And the winner is: Danica!

With the Holidays just around the corner, I've been in a really good mood lately. So I decided to spread the cheer a little bit. I'm going to give away a 25$ store credit (good in either of my shops) to one lucky blog reader!

Here's out it works.
First, you check out both of my Etsy shops:
http://gailavira.etsy.com
http://gailaviratutorials.etsy.com

When you are done looking around my shops, come back here and tell me what jewelry items you liked the best, or what tutorials look most interesting to you, or even which finished pieces in my shop you would like to see a tutorial for.

Make sure to leave me some kind of contact info. If you do not want to post your email address, give me a link to your etsy profile, or your profile on any other site that has a private message system so that I can let you know if you win.

That's it!

On the morning of Monday, November 30th, I will pick a random winner out of all of the people who commented here on this blog.

Oh, and if you don't win this one, don't worry! I am already collaborating with another Etsian to do a giveaway on her blog too. Once all the details are set on that one I will let you know here so you can go to her blog and enter there too.

Of course, if you see something you just have to have right away, and don't want to wait for the end of the contest to see if you've won, I'll give anyone who mentions this blog post in the notes to seller during checkout a 20% discount! (Discount cannot be combined with any other sales or discounts)

My favorite from your shop is the Amethyst and Sterling Silver Necklace. I just bought some wire wrapped earrings from another seller and love them they look just like this except made with gold instead of silver. I'm wondering how this kind of jewelry is made. You have some very unique and beautiful jewelry!

There's a lot of good options, but out of the tutorials, I really find this woven front to be beautifully intricate and would love to learn how to make that myself:

From the tutorials I think the Prison of Enchantment - Wire Wrap Technique for Un-drilled Gemstone Points would be the most useful for me, mainly because it looks like something I could actually do and a lot of the rest is probably beyond my skills.

From your jewelry I like the Hammered Spiral Necklace. It is simple and elegant, and I love hammered silver.
