Win a Fused Glass Pendant of Your Choice!

I've just discovered a wonderful blog: Etsy Giveaways! Every day, they post links to contests where you can win free handmade gifts from Etsy artists! This sounds like so much fun that I want to participate.


The Prize

One lucky winner will receive a fused glass pendant of his or her choice from my website or my Etsy store! I make my pendants one at a time, designing, cutting and assembling them by hand in my tiny studio at my house in historic Greenbelt, MD. I use all compatible 90 COE glass, heat it to thoroughly scalding temperatures, then slowly anneal it for strength.

How to Enter

Pick your favorite pendant from my website or my Etsy store, and leave a comment on this blog post with your choice. Be sure to include your email address so that I can contact you if you win!


The contest is open through the end of Friday, November 7th at midnight eastern time. On Saturday, I'll choose a winner at random from the comments and contact that person by email. If I don't receive a response within a week, I'll pick another winner! Shipping in included with the prize; due to the high variability in worldwide shipping costs, this content is only open to residents of the United States and Canada.

Update: The contest is over and we have a winner! If you'd like to be notified the next time I have a giveaway, please sign up for my Contests and Giveaways newsletter!
