Several weeks ago I entered a contest on a wonderful blog, The Jewelry Artists Network .
It was a giveaway titled “Some of My Favorite Things”. The prize would include some jewelry supplies which, of course I would love to have.
I never expected to win, but I did!!!! I was deliriously happy with expectation when I received that email telling me I was the winner.
I was truly overwhelmed. This incredibly talented jewelry artist was extremely generous. She sent me several sheets of copper (which I really needed and was about to order), an awesome pair of Xuron hand shears, a scribe, lovely glass and stone beads and cabs, a fantastic (new) book – “Making Metal Jewelry”, a wax stick, a retractable sharpie and even included a note saying that a bordering hammer was to come.
It feels like Christmas! I am so very grateful – Thank you so much Janice Fowler and Jewelry Artists Network!!
By a strange coincidence, I had just ordered a disk cutter and a set of alphabet stamps which had arrived on the same day. Just in time for use on my sheet metal. How great is that!
