One World One Heart

I just heard about this amazing event from my bead buddy Lisa Atchison. One World One Heart is a global event to unite bloggers everywhere. To find out more or to participate, please visit the One World One Heart Website.

This stop on the magic carpet ride is the beach!

I will be giving away one of my favorite items; a beach ball necklace. This handmade glass globe is filled with tiny sea shells, driftwood and coral to remind you of a beautiful day at the seaside. It's capped with sterling silver and has a fine sterling bail. The size of the globe is about 23mm and the length of the necklace is 18 inches.

This beautiful necklace will be given (and shipped freely) to one lucky winner on February 15th. Here's how to enter:

1. You must have an active blog
2. You must leave a comment below to be eligible and you need to include contact info so I can contact you if you win.
Please visit my bead buddies who are also participating; Samma Parcels at Samma's Studio Lockdown and Lisa Atchison of Touch of Glass Designs.

I live on the beach and would love to win your beatiful necklace.

Gina said...

I'm loving it that I'm finding Indiana artisians here! Most of you, if not all so far, have been lampwork bead makers, which I love, especially since it's a skill I don't have or anticipate aquiring. Love that pendant! Please go see my tatted lace,#753, when you have a chance.

Hello from Victoria, Australia.
Oh Wow Julie, That is such an amazing necklace. I love how you make the actual beach ball yourself (I am in awe of people who work with glass) and it is too cool filled with bits of the beach.Sigh> It is wonderful. It reminds me of so many trips to the beach collecting shells and whatever, first when I was girl and then with my own daughters.
I would love to win it.
Please enter me into the draw.
Thanks Lynda
