Earring contest

I want to give away five pairs of earrings.

Why would I want to do this you ask? Well, I have stalled out a bit on jewelry making lately. I have not sold a whole lot since Christmas and the biggest joy for me in making things is having other people enjoy them. I have always been this way about the "things" I make. When I was a potter I just had to give things away or sell them because that is where the joy is for me. So PLEASE help me out.

So if you want to play along please do. I want to make it fair so I will just pull your name out of a hat. To enter all you have to do is...

1. Give me your favorite spring color combination (it can be more than two colors)

2. Tell me the length of earrings you prefer.

3. Look at my Etsy sight and mark your favorite earrings (if you look on the right side of the page you can see a spot to mark the item as favorite. This will allow me to see the styles people like) If you are not signed up with Etsy and you don't want to sign up you can just make a note of the name and put that in you post to me.


Send me a picture of a style you like (maybe I will get some new ideas that way).

4. Write a note to me with these items and a sentence or two telling me why you want a new pair of earrings. Please feel free to give me any feedback or comments that would give me ideas or help in designing something for you. Mail it to me OR comment here (I will watch for both). If you win I will email you back and ask for your address.

Deadline is March 7, 2008 (Will pull names March 8th in the am on the west coast).

To make it fair to everyone, I will put your name in a hat and have my kids pull out five. I will email you and also list the winners here (preserving your privacy of course). I will post pictures of the earrings here as well. Thank you for playing and good luck.

I think I have covered everything...

This is going to be fun!

Linda, your stuff is GORGEOUS! (and, may I say, INEXPENSIVE!) I marked as favorites the earrings that really jumped out at me--I really like silver & light purple (lavendar), as well as light blue. I prefer shorter earrings, with an open hoop or stud fastener (I'm afraid of the kids grabbing a closed hoop, ack!)

I'm not much of a jewelry person, but I do like to use it to dress up, and I don't have many pairs of earrings. It would be great to have something quality, pretty & homemade!

I'm not a good person to ask about "spring" colors because I live in Hawaii where the weather (and my clothes) are always the same.

I am drawn to your ocean themed items, and my favorite color combination is blue and green. I liked the Blue Wedding Cake earrings a lot, and of course the Ocean earrings. I like earrings that are dangly and somewhat long (I have very thick, curly hair and want tobe able to see them!) but not huge where the toddler can't resist grabbing them. I prefer open hoop.

I love earrings and bracelets because they make me feel feminine and pretty even with the very casual clothes I am normally wearing.

Blue and green! :-) I'm not sure of the length. I like them to dangle a little, but not a lot.
Does that help? ;-)

Your pieces are so pretty! I wish I could make stuff like that. I saw the link to your blog from Sonlight.

I would love to win. I haven't had a new pair of earrings in 5 years! (Has it really been that long ago?!) wow. My birthstone is the amethyst and I love pink. The "green earrings with square bead" is a cute setup. Ooooh, I hope I win!

I re-pierced my ears a couple years ago and have been wearing nothing but studs out of habit. I used to wear "danglies" all the time...Before kids lol! I love the greens and yellows..and purples. Pink used to be my favorite color. I still like it just not on everything hehe. I'm not worried about the boys grabbing my ears anymore. I wouldn't want them more than 2 inches though.

Hi there. I'll enter your contest!

I'm "This Job Rocks" over at THSL, and "ElviraExclusives" at ETSY.

I like blue and green. I like earring that dangle an inch to inch and a half.

Your stuff is really beautiful!

I like your jewelry. It makes me feel like I am at the beach. I like the Ocean Blue Long Earrings-2 best.

I like all lengths of earrings. I don't have many that dangle, so I am looking for that length. For spring, I like green, blue, and lavender.

I also like your dark brown earrings a lot. I wear brown and red year around.

Hello, your earrings are lovely! I like purple and green, or green and silver. I like long earrings, fishhook style. I like the Green Earrings with Square Bead.
