7th blog anniversary giveaway...

Finally I reveal what the actual giveaway item is!  It is a handmade bead crochet bracelet with copper and faux pearl accents.  It is about eight inches in circumference.  There is no clasp, it slides over the hand as a bangle.

It is hot off the crochet hook.  I finished it last night, but needed to wait for daylight to photograph it.  I think it turned out beautifully (if I do say so myself).  The somewhat rustic copper end caps lend it a Celtic look.  I love it so much that I ordered another kit to make one for myself.

If you haven't left a comment to enter the giveaway, you have one more week.  Entries will close next Monday, June 30 at midnight my time (Central Daylight Savings Time).  I will draw a winner and announce who that might be on Tuesday, July 1.  All entries welcome, whether a long-time reader or a first-time visitor.


  1. It is really beautiful, May it also chase away arthur-itis!

  2. That's gorgeous! I remember my Mom and grandmother doing that bead crocheting...not being a crafty person, I never tried...we had lots of stuff made like that in the 70's. ;-)
