Competition Time

I have been wanting to run a competition on this blog for quite a while, I hosted a giveaway a couple of years ago with every intention of doing others but I never quite managed it until now.
The great news is that today the prize has been generously donated by The Bead Shop Manchester and is one I hope you will find very exciting. As I have often said before, my jewellery making journey started with a kit to make 6 pairs of earrings, so based on my simple beginnings I have selected a prize for this competition that will provide you with much much more than beads for just 6 pairs of earrings! so without further ado - let me show you the prize -
The lucky winner of this competition will win the following


Fishhook Earwire - Silver Plated
20 silver plate earwires

20 gold plate earwires
