Inspired Art by Dana

Welcome back to the giveaways! (If you'd like to enter the drawing for Carrie's art go here.)

Today's offering is from another friend of mine, Dana. She only began making jewelery a short time ago but you would think that she had been doing it for a lifetime. Her pieces are truly inspiring.



This is the piece that we are giving away today. This is a 1" x 2" vintage pin, with a picture of an art deco woman with wings of a butterfly representing life. It's made with glass, silver gleam soldering, a silver embellishment with a yellow crystal dangling to match the wings of the butterfly. You could wear it on your jean jacket, coat, or add it to a collection and hang it on your purse, or backpack.....It would retail for $15.00.




You must go check out her ETSY shop, Inspired Art by Dana. It is recently established so if you don't see something for sale that you would be interested in buying, feel free to contact her at dy0513 (at) aol (dot) com.




This is one of my favorite pieces of hers(below). Every time she shows it to me I almost weep with it's beauty. She will sell it, so if you're interested act FAST! (Email her directly for that one.)


She also has more pieces shown on her blog. Peruse her selections. She has such a sweet heart and it really shows in her pieces. Her pins are beautiful, and she routinely sells them right off of her chest!



How To Enter: Check out her blog and her shop then come back and tell me which piece you love. (Dana will be reading- you might influence some of the things that she offers for sale!) Make sure to leave your email address in the comments so I can contact you. You do not have to be a blogger, just have a valid email address. One entry per person, please. Comments/entries will be open until Monday, August 4th. I will choose a winner with a random number generator and I will contact you be email. You will have until August 8th to get back to me with your mailing address or I will choose a new winner. (Please note: I will be on vacation so these will not go out until after the 10th.) I will ship overseas, if necessary.

I know that you haven't entered all of the giveaways yet, so head on back to Bloggy Giveaways to find more great stuff for free!

What a pretty pin, I really love the Glinda the Good Witch piece!

Soliloquy said...

I"m with you. I wanted to weep when I saw that bracelet.

And then I DID weep when I saw the price.

I'm funny about money. There are some things I can't spend it on.

Jewelry is one of them.

I wish you were giving THAT away - but will hope for a chance at the pin!

I love the Beaded Wire Wrap Bracelet, however, it's out of my price range at the moment. Worth every penny if I had them. (Sigh.)

Elizabeth P. said...

The Christmas angel ornament is beautiful. BUT Glenda the good witch reminds me of all those years watching the Wizard of Oz with my mom. I am queenesperfect at yahoo.com

Tabby said...

The Glinda the Good Witch pin is fantastic! Perfect for my mother in law. No, not because she's a witch (She's more of the flying monkey type ;) ), but because she loves The Wizard of Oz.

Geri said...
