Folks! That’s wild that 500 people give a crap at all about what I have to say! Thank you so much. I’ve always used Twitter as something of a mixture between business stuff and personal stuff. So, my twitter feed is full, at any given time, of current events talk, video games, music and of course whatever’s going on with Bramblefae Boutique. I love being able to talk to folks in real time, and the 140 character limit is teaching me about being concise, which is a good skill to learn, especially for someone who meanders as much as I do!
Anyhow, I’m having a little Thank You giveaway over on my twitter and ya’ll are welcome to jump in on it!
The rules are simple: You need to be following my twitter account on Friday August 28 at 10pm Eastern time and you need to have retweeted the tweet that’s pinned to the top of my twitter page (It will have the above graphic in it!). That’s it! Then after 10 on Friday, I’ll go through the retweets and assign a number to every person who retweeted, then using an online random number generator, I will pick a winner!
Here’s exactly what you’ll get- One ring, to your size specifications in the style of the one in the graphic. You’ll get your choice between silver, gold, or rose gold Parawire, and your choice between three small raw rubies, or raw yellow or blue sapphires (or, I suppose, any combo of the three). The ring in the picture is rose gold and ruby, to give you an idea. It’s got a value of 25 dollars (American), and I will send it anywhere.
Thank you folks, very much, for your support of my jewelry designing endeavors. I love ya’ll for it, and I hope to see ya’ll when I hit the next milestone!
I’ve talked about this a bit on twitter and on Facebook, but I’ve not been able to talk about it much until now. 🙂
See, I was tasked with making a crown that was dark and rough and evil looking. I was given a reference pic
I was also pointed toward Ravenna from Snow White and the Huntsman.
With those two pics in hand, I went to work. I’m not gonna lie at all, this was the most challenging thing I’ve ever done, wire-wise. I wanted it to look rough and raw, but I didn’t want it too look like I just threw shit together. It’s also the first time I worked with raw gemstones of any kind. (In this case, it was a raw garnet that fit comfortably into the palm of my hand. Huge.)
The chains were fun, because I have a drawer in the studio that is (Well, *was*, at this point lol) full of random chains that I pick up all over the place-yard sales, clearance sales, broken jewelry-seriously, I don’t throw anything away. 🙂
I am super super proud of this and I cannot wait to see it, looking awesome, wicked-evil and fit for a queen, on the woman who’ll be wearing it. Trust me, folks, as soon as I get those pics this summer, I will be sharing them with you. 🙂
