Weekly Feature and Giveaway: Blackdog Handcrafted Jewelry {Closed}

This week's giveaway is from Blackdog Handcrafted Jewelry


Sandi of Blackdog Handcrafted Jewelry has been making jewelry for approximately five years. She began making jewelry because she wanted pieces with an organic look and couldn't find then anywhere. After learning how to shape, hammer and polish metal, Sandi fell in love with jewelry making and since has been handcrafting unique, natural, eye catching pieces. As Sandi describes, her jewelry is "soft yet bold".

Sandi's inspiration comes from her surroundings. The land, creeks, mountains and trees of her hometown near Denver, Colorado, are breathtaking and provide her with a never ending supply of inspiration.

For more information on Blackdog Handcrafted Jewelry and to keep up to date with Sandi, visit her website at http://www.blackdoghandcraftedjewelry.com. Sandi can also be found on facebook. In addition to Artfire, Sandi has shops on Etsy and Zibbet.

This week, enter to win a pair of Pink Rhodonite and Hammered Sterling Silver Earrings from Blackdog Handcrafted Jewelry.
