Monday Giveaway and Feature: Glass and Wire Gems

This week's featured shop/artist is Donna of Glass and Wire Gems.

Donna started making jewelry in early 2008 as a hobby and started wire-wrapping about six months later. Donna has worked with stained glass for years. A friend/mentor who has worked with dichroic glass for a long time asked Donna if she wanted to take a class with her. Her interest grew from there - it's the hobby that has grown wings.

Now you can fly away with this week's giveaway. This week there will be two winners.

Wire-Wrapped Aqua Dichroic Teardrop Pendant

White with Silver Wire-Wrapped Dangle Earrings

This giveaway is only open to U.S. shipping addresses.

The first name, picked at random, will have a choice between the two items above. The second winner, also picked at random, will win the remaining item.

For a chance to win this week's giveaway, you must:

Name and post a link to your favorite item from the featured artist's shop in the comments section of this post (link at the end of this post)

A little bit more about Donna's craft and shop:

What is your favorite stone?
My favorite stone is the amethyst.

Do you make other crafts?
I've done some card making and crocheting.

What attracted you to Artfire?
It's newness and the ease with which you can do things. I'm not good with computers and their site helps a lot. I also like the way the different artists work together. They are a community.

Can your items be found anywhere other than Artfire?
I have my own website - www.glassandwiregems.com. I'm currently on Etsy too. I also have my pieces on consignment at two local stores.

Please provide a link to ONE of your favorite Artfire shops.

Tell me something interesting about you or your shop.
I love the desert and the mountains. Their beauty has always been amazing to me.

While you are visiting Glass and Wire Gems, please take advantage of Donna's offer - 15% off your order with coupon code NATURE. Special offer valid through November 30, 2009.

Thanks for participating in this week's giveaway. Be sure to stop by next week for another great giveaway.
