One World One Heart 2010 - A Magic Carpet Ride
With all the horrors going on in the world today wouldn't it be wonderful if we could all take a magic carpet ride to other corners of the universe? Experience things like we've never seen before, have others come and see how we live? I think that would be a great way, a beginning at least, to work towards promoting peace in our nations.
Well, that is the theme for this year's One World One Heart. I'll be participating in the giveaway event this year. The idea was launched in 2007 by Lisa Swifka as a way to bring bloggers together from around the world who may never ordinarily meet. It closes the gap of the blog community and enables us to interact, discover new and wonderful people, and in the process possibly win a prize or many prizes along the way. Details on previous years can be had on her blog.
Soooo, in keeping with this year's theme and the photo above, I am offering this lovely piece titled "Starry, Starry Night".
The focal bead is a 5 pointed star created with layers of white, transparent turquoise and green glass. The pendant measures 21mm and was wound on a 3/32" mandrel. Included is a dyed silk cord measuring approximately 24" which can be knotted at whichever length you desire. The bead is an artisan lampwork bead created by me in my NY studio. I have a shop on Etsy as well as ArtFire where I have lots of other beads for sale.
In order to be eligible to win this lovely necklace, each person must leave a comment below. Since this is a blog event, this giveaway is only open to other bloggers. 1 winner will be picked at random. Your contact information is imperative as that is the only way I have to contact you. If no contact info is left, I will be forced to select another winner. I'd REALLY hate for that to happen. Contest ends February 15, 2010 @ 12:01 AM. My birthday's in February & I love the idea of giving someone else a gift! :) Here are the dreaded (simple) rules:
1) Entrants must include their blog address in their comment.
2) Entrants must include their e-mail address in the comment or have a way for me to find you.
That's all! Good luck!
