Competition Details

I am excited about this last mega giveaway for the month and I hope you will be too. There are so many wonderful international artists out there on Etsy.com and it is my pleasure to introduce a few to you with this giveaway. Given we all spend so much time online, let's support our local artists who trade online.

TO ENTER: Leave one comment. This giveaway is open to all no matter where you live in the world. Commenters who are also members of the Lilly's Life Blog Frog Community (see right column on this page), will automatically get two extra entries. The giveaway closes on midnight Tuesday, 2 June 2009. Don't forget to click on the images to enlarge them.

The Giveaway Package to be won by one lucky person includes:

1. A gorgeous crystal Jewellery Cuff by Simone Russell





Simone Russell's handmade sculptural jewellery is exquisite. She is based in Australia and has a background in architecture and fine art and it definitely shows in the pieces she makes. She uses a unique technique to produce woven sculptural forms that are firm to the touch, organic in shape and very comfortable to wear. Her pieces are created by premium quality silver and color coated copper, sterling silver and pure silver wires woven painstakingly together... and all by hand. And she takes custom orders if you would like something specially designed.

The giveaway winner will receive this elegant cuff made from Swarovski crystal. The crystals catch and reflect the light with every movement you make.It is made from premium colour and silver plated copper. One size fits most. It sits about halfway up the arm, between the wrist and the elbow.

You can find Simone's Etsy shop, Coralia here. And her Trunkt wholesale listing here
