Free Blog Give-Away and Delicate Crochet

I just realized this morning that I have to get my free blog give-away started because next sunday is the first sunday in Advent!

But before I explain how you can participate, I want to do a little feature on one of my favourite artists and dear blog-friend Ivy from Edera Jewelry. I met Ivy here on blogspot - or was it flickr? - and I was instantly fascinated by her intriguing jewellery.

Ivy incorporates fine crochet and lacemaking techniques into her work and her sense of colours and textures is just amazing. Her jewellery collection is both elegant and romantic and she uses silk, gold and silver thread, embroidery, semiprecious stones, vintage beads, and handcrafted chains to create her unique and very feminine jewellery.

But Ivy isn´t just a very talented artist, she is also such a lovely person and has provided me with lots of help and advice on how to promote my work on blogspot and especially etsy - thank you very much Ivy!

Make sure to visit Ivys blog Edera Jewelry to see more of her beautiful jewellery and even take a look at her etsy shop as until December 1st, she is having a 25-50% off Sale on select items!

Now let´s come to the blog give-away! As I have announced earlier, I´m going to have a free blog give-away every sunday in Advent, starting next sunday.

Last thing I want to tell you is that the first pair of wristwarmers made it to my shop!
