november gifts

Yesterday I went outside to soak up some of this glorious weather we’ve been having and take some pictures. I found this late blooming bit of pink amongst all the dried up autumn plants. It felt like a gift.

And because I have been insanely busy lately and therefore am way behind on visiting and reading and interacting with all of you, and because I have two, three-day, back-to-back weekend shows coming up, I figured it was time to show some gratitude with a giveaway!

This lovely bracelet is titled “When bluebirds fly.”

The photos really don’t do justice to the gorgeous blues of these glass beads, but you get the idea.
This bracelet is adjustable, it can hook anywhere along the dangle chain and will fit a wrist that is 6 3/4 to 7 3/4 inches..
A $76.95 value.

All you have to do to enter is leave a comment on this post.

To make it a little more fun, tell me
what you are grateful for these days!

(but any comment will get you entered)

For an extra chance at winning, follow me on twitter or facebook and tweet or post about the giveaway for an additional entry.
Just come back here and leave an additional comment to let me know that you have done so, and you will be entered twice. Note: you must come back and leave an additional comment for an additional entry.

This giveaway will be up until midnight on Tuesday, November 22nd.
I will announce the winner on Wednesday, November 23rd, 2011.

    Kelly, what a gift…that bit of pink in the fading autumn. It made me smile today.

    Your bracelet is beautiful…and I love what you call it “When Bluebirds Fly” — it’s touching a spot in my heart today.

  • Lenora November 19, 2011 at 12:24 am

    Oh, what a BEAUTIFUL bracelet!

    I’m grateful for many things, but this Thanksgiving I’m especially grateful for healing in a relationship and the support system that saw me through a dark night of the soul. This time last year the future of my 17-year marriage was very uncertain. Today, after a year of challenging inner work (both together and separately), our love has been renewed. So I am especially grateful to be spending Thanksgiving in the company of my beloved.

    I am also grateful for the cool crisp fall air, the gorgeous leaves, pumpkins, friends & family, and the opportunity to enter this contest. Thank you for your lovely blog and your generosity!

  • Lenora November 19, 2011 at 12:34 am

  • Lisa November 21, 2011 at 11:05 am

    It might sound silly, but I’m thankful for just about everything. The little things that make my life mine….my kids’ silly personalities, the bloggy friends I follow, roasted sweet potatoes and fuzzy socks. Random, but all awesome 🙂

  • Lisa November 21, 2011 at 11:05 am

    I tweeted (or RT’d, actually).

  • Lisa November 21, 2011 at 11:06 am

    Shared on Facebook. Lovely bracelet….someone’s going to have a lovely surprise!

  • Julie Mangano November 21, 2011 at 11:13 am

    Love this beautiful bracelet. Will you let me know where I can see more of your jewelry. I’d like to get a bracelet or earrings for my SIL for Christmas and your work is perfect for her! (and me after the holidays)

  • bethany November 21, 2011 at 11:34 am

    I’m grateful for wicked dreams that make you realize there is so much more going on in this life than we are consciously aware of. -Beautiful bracelet!

  • Alana November 21, 2011 at 2:14 pm

    Oh this is gorgeous! I wish I could shop at your shows. I am grateful for words, snow on the California mountains, my daughter’s smile, my husband’s blue eyes (that match those beads), my life.

  • Graciel @ Evenstar Art November 21, 2011 at 9:25 pm
