Welcome to day eight of the ten days of giveaways! Today I leave for Milwaukee for the Bead & Button mecca. I am looking forward to seeing many smiling faces, so today's giveaway celebrates this with a collection of serene smiling face stones! These are some of my best sellers, having been used in several major classes and in books on beadweaving and precious metal clay. These stones have no holes or loops (they are cabochons) so people use them to bezel set, bead around, and glue onto findings.
To go with the stones I have a collection of findings from Rings and Things that are used for gluing. There are *bobby pins, cuff links, and shoe clips! Rings and Things has been my Go-To place for all sorts of unusual (and usual) findings for years. If you are looking for a way to attach something to something else, or solve a beading problem, I would recommend checking there first. I sometimes just surf the findings section to get ideas for new things! I hope that the winner has fun with these parts.
To win today's prize, leave a comment on the Earthenwood Studio Chronicles blog with an answer to the following question:
Do you use cabochons in your work? How would you use these Face Stones?
One winner will be chosen at random from all the comments. Comments are screened and will be posted June 15th. All winners will be chosen and posted to the blog on June 15th, so be sure to check back then. You must respond to the June 15th winner post and follow the directions to claim your prize within one week of the posting. After a week, I reserve the right to choose another winner. Good luck and thanks for commenting!
