I've been a member of the About.com forum for Jewelry makers for a few years now and in that time, you get to know the forum members as friends. We have a giveaway each month; anybody who wants can put their name in the hat and one forum member is the giveaway host. I don't always enter because I don't think it's fair for people to have to pay international shipping, but when Dana of Wind Dancer Studios offered one of her fabulous pendants, I was in like flint and actually won it!
Take a look at her Wind Dancer Etsy shop.
Thanks, Dana, it has been sitting on my kitchen table waiting for my muse to strike because it needs a special setting to show off the special pendant.
Oh and by the way, me who never wins anything - I won this fantastic pendant, did an online survey for a university in New Brunswick and they phoned and told me I won $250 just for doing the survey - WAITING FOR # 3!!
