It's Giveaway Time!--CONTEST CLOSED

I haven't done a giveaway on my own blog in a long time, so I decided it was time to jump back in! This giveaway is pretty simple. The prize is this Mulberry Wine Bracelet which retails for $36 in my shop plus a free pair of earrings ($10 or under)--your choice!!!

It's a one of a kind piece made from 8" (20 cm) of antique silver-plated cable chain adorned with 8mm rounds of red artistic paintbrush jasper wearing ornate twisted metal bead caps and vintage milky white rounds topped with gorgeous tulip bead caps. Each bead is triple wrapped directly onto the chain for durability. The piece closes with a flower-embossed toggle clasp. It will be custom sized for the winner!
