giveaway - big tinsel necklace

With Valentine's Day just around the corner and my two year blogging anniversary happening imminently I thought it was a good time to offer you a fabulous giveaway. I've admired the work of Maria who creates jewellery under the name Big Tinsel and portraits under the name Miss Crowland for awhile now. When she mentioned to me that she was partnering up with The Arthur to do a small limited edition line of jewellery using vintage pieces I was intrigued. I asked Maria if she would be interested in doing a giveaway and while she can't offer up one of her new pieces (those are exclusive to The Arthur) she did kindly agree to donate this charming Fox Necklace to one of my readers.

The Fox Necklace features a very unique bead with a fox head design. It is solid brass and hangs from an antiqued brass ball chain which is 24 inches long. To enter the giveaway please leave a comment on this post telling me which piece of jewellery you like best in the Big Tinsel store. You have until midnight (EST) on February 8th to enter. I'll announce the winner on February 9th (my 2 year blogging anniversary). The giveaway is open to all my readers (even those of you in far flung places) so enter away.

Before we go, I just wanted to show you a few sneak peeks of the new jewellery that will be available at The Arthur.

The top blue pieces are made from a vintage bracelet and the red works combine coral, a found heart and an old brooch. Aren't they lovely? I'm particularly enamored of that red coral bracelet. (Hint, hint - sweet husband!)

If you don't live in the Toronto area, Maria's work can also be purchased through her Esty store. She's just added a few new items that would be perfect for Valentine's Day.

The Queen Necklace features a quartz crystal at its center. As Maria notes, this necklace is not for the weak willed! The one above has already sold but she has a selection of 6 other crystals you can choose from to complete this necklace. The Going Steady Necklace features a vintage charm with the words Going Steady. Both of these necklaces are in very limited quality so act fast if you would like one. Oh and did I mention they retail for $30 and $25 respectively. Do yourself a favour and buy one!
