First Ever - Giveaway!!

When designing, I am inspired by the beads and materials I hold in my hands. I came across these fabulous silk sarong cording reams and feel in love. The colors are vibrant and look spectacular with Vintaj Natural Brass. I decided today to go back and purchase 2 reams of the silk for my first ever "Giveaway". The first ream of silk has about 1/2" wide strips and the second is rolled into a cord. The reams consist of various strips that are pieced together. When cut, they are the perfect length to make a necklace and bracelet. There are many beautiful colors to accent your beading design perfectly.

All you have to do is leave a comment telling me what inspires you.

The bracelet and earrings picture in the blog are NOT part of the "Giveaway". They are there for inspiration. You will receive the 2 reams of silk pictured in this blog.

I will pick a winner next Friday, April 16th. I will be using to make the selection. Good luck and I hope you love the silks as much as I do.


  1. I am always inspired by buttons. I am like yourself that I have to fell and caress them. Also vintage items give me inspiration, trying to think of what stories they have to tell!


  2. I believe that inspiration is everywhere! Lately I have been inspired by lines of French poetry, bright colors like teal and magenta, railroad ties and all those bare necks on the runways that could use a bit of handmade bling!
    Thanks for the opportunity! Enjoy the day! Erin

  3. Thanks for the giveaway! I've been inspired by a lot of color---maybe this is from the anticipation of the spring and summer months. I've been very drawn to reds, teals, aquas. I've also been inspired by other artists who are trying something makes me want to carve out the time to experiment with things to try on my to do list!
    Bead Happy!

  4. Lately I've been inspired by novels. I'm re-reading Jane Eyre for my book club and I'm thinking, Hmmm . . . What kind of jewelry could I make to symbolize this book?

  5. I want the silk! Pick me!
    I am inspired by literally everything. I have a sketch in my pile that was inspired by hardware on a shower door. Home depot inspires me. Usually it is the beads themselves that seem to come up with their own design, but I do love looking at other peoples jewelry, which often inspires a color combo or use of shapes or material. Lately I have been fascinated by Tim Holtz.

  6. don't choose me 'cause i wouldn't know what to do with it!! lol

    i just wanted to say those look amazing and i LOVE the colors!! so cute!!

  7. I am inspired by what people wear and how they wear it. The colors of their clothes and skin. How the jewelry falls on their body or mingles with their clothes. Is it an ethnic tradition? A religious tradition? A seasonal fashion style? What do people wear all the time? What has become a part of them? How can I use these elements?

  8. My inspirations comes from everything...I even wake up in the middle of the night & start writing ideas, they usually poor out of me at that time,
