November Crafts Giveaway - Beadercollie!

24/11/2010

Welcome to the November Handmade Crafts Giveaway!

Hello everyone and welcome to our November Give-away! You can enter now in the usual way (visit our sponsor and then come back and post a comment telling us which of their crafted goodies you like the most and why) and we will be accepting entries up until the end of Sunday 28th November 2010.

Time to talk about this month's sponsor, Cazz at Beadercollie..!

Beadercollie - Beautiful Handmade Jewellery!

Lollipop Necklace by Beadercollie Cazz started beading many moons ago - but the illness (and eventually, loss) of a very special dog stopped her in her tracks. Then when her current dog Riley (a Springer Spaniel / Border Collie cross) was still a pup, there simply wasn't time. Still, she did get started again and this year has started getting into more craft fairs and trying to sell her work - with the ultimate goal of escaping her day job at Royal Mail!

She does beading, polymer clay and resin but is always keen to learn more crafty things to do.

Recently added to the website are resin trinket dishes, which are proving popular - especially the ones made with hundreds and thousands. Cazz is fairly new to working with resin and is looking forward to trying fabric with it as well. Amongst her other favourite things to make are lollipop necklaces (with focal beads made by Tan Grey of tanofcourse.co.uk). These are one of a kind, which makes them even more special.

She is currently working on a couple of individually commissioned necklaces and is happy to undertake further commissions.

Christmas Snowflake decorations by Beadercollie Star Earrings by Beadercollie You may be wondering why 'Beadercollie'? Well, it's simple - it's a combination of her love of dogs (particularly border collies) and beading! She will be making a collection of border collie themed necklaces in the future, which will be auctioned in support of the charity 'Border Collies In Need' - something she has done in the past.

And what can you win?

The prize on offer is a pair of beaded star earrings in a lovely crystal coloured seed bead - they catch the light beautifully, as well as two beaded snowflake christmas decorations made with seed beads and swarovski crystal.

I love Cazz's vintage/recycled range, especially as that kind of ecologically responsible stuff is what I like to make myself. But what really, REALLY stands out for me are the gorgeous little netted snowflake earrings. Subtle, yet sparkly. Sparkly, yet subtle :)

The Big Flower would be my favourite. I can't wait for the border collie themed items - I have 2 BCs and lost my beloved Battersea Rescue collie cross aged 18.5 years last September - so loved and so missed. Don't get me started on my love for this breed - I'll be here all day!!!!

Some many reasons to choose more than one for each of the girls in a mum/grannys life...Blue necklace for my daughter to match her eyes, the green apple for my elder daughter, Eyore for my youngest grandaughter (3) and star earings for the elder of granduaghters as she has stars in her eyes!!

as I am normally an earring fancier - the Tibetan butterfly drops would have been my first choice. But then I saw the Teal Pop necklace and that is so lovely - to see that in my christmas stocking would make my day! & the new year!

They are so beautiful! My favourite ones are the bottom pair, the beading makes them look like they're made of ice and I bet they sparkle a treat!
