One World One Heart 2011 Giveaway

Welcome. Some of you may be new to NJAD and are visiting via One World One Heart, an opportunity for bloggers worldwide to  meet and mingle. Since we are only in month four of our year long adventure, this is NJAD's first year participating, but it is the fifth and final year of OWOH hosted by Lisa at A Whimsical Logo2011smallBohemian. You can read more about OWOH and find the giveaway rules here.
My daughter and I began NJAD in November with the goal of making a new piece of jewelry every day from found objects and share our projects with others via our blog in a “how to” format. Our self-imposed rules require that we (1) spend little or no money on our NJAD jewelry projects, (2) use up stuff we already have or can find in the trash or recycling can and (3) blog about it everyday.

OWOH Door Prize, Pendant by
As part of OWOH, my daughter and I are giving away a door prize on February 17th. The lucky winner will enjoy a copper and brass pendant stamped "FYEO" (text speak meaning "for your eyes only") or any other custom stamp up to six English letters (1.5mm each) long. (Sorry we do not own stamps in letters other than English).

Back of Pendant Signed Gelt
The FYEO pendant was handmade in our Washington, DC studio from a copper washer and brass wire and is signed "Gelt" on the back. We explained how to make the pendant in this NJAD blog post.

Anyone can win. To enter, leave a comment in the comments section below along with a way for us to contact you should you win. The FYEO pendant is ready to ship. Allow a day or two before shipping to make the pendant if the lucky winner wants a custom stamped design.

    Regards from Germany and happy OWOH

  3. How pretty! It is nice to meet you. I enjoyed visiting your blog and hope you will visit me, too!

  4. Hi there,

    Your pendant is really great! To stamp FYEO is a great idea, but I am afraid I would get many questions about it (I live in Germany, you see). If I were the lucky winner, I guess I would settle for MAGIC or MAGIE which is the German word for magic. :)

    Happy creating,
