Monday Giveaway and Feature: Within Wire - Closed

Congratulations Shay Lee! You are the winner of this giveaway.

This week's featured shop is Within Wire

Within Wire's artist, Anna, made her first piece of jewelry approximately two years ago when she took a fusing fine silver jewelry class with her friend. Since then, Anna has been busy trying new jewelry techniques, of which she uses wire wrapping and caging the most. Anna's style inspired her shops name. She likes to take natural components, particularly beach glass and shells, and adds wire to them. All of the beach glass and shells are hand picked from local beaches in Hawaii, where Anna is from. When Anna is not making jewelry, she works in a laboratory as an oceanographer, looking for the next biofuel using algae as the source. Anna also likes to paint, draw, sew, do ceramics and cook.

This week, win a Zen inspired stacked seaglass pendant from WithinWire

This beautiful pendant is created from seaglass - a classic color combination of bright green, light blue and white. The stacks are offset to the right of a beautifully handmade sterling silver circle. Pendant does not come with chain.

I doubt that I'm allowed to go into the giveaway unfortunately - our Ministry of Ag and Fisheries are very strict on bringing shells into the country

I do love the shop and especially the Offset Stacked Seaglass Pendant.

Thanks for sharing :-)
