And the winner is......

Welcome back to the 1st ever Willo Wire jewelry contest.  All the names were put into a hat and my wife pulled the winning name of...........     Sherry!   Congratulations.  Sheri, you will be able to pick any 1 item in my etsy store or one of the new items I have just completed below. Each of these are made from etched copper with sterling silver links and the one has a sterling silver spiral below.

I used liver of sulfur to darken the copper and with copper, it can darken in the future so would need to be cleaned on occasion.

Please email me your contact information or address to send your item. My email is: or

Also, since it was my 1st contest, I picked a second name and that is Artemis Demille.  Please send me your information as well and will be able to choose after Sheri has.

It is time to get back to work on more jewelry.....

It is finally time.

Downtown Phoenix behind my house

There are so many great things coming up around this time of the year.

Labor day will be in a few days (all the sales), the end of summer is almost upon us and my blog will turn 4 months old on the 10th.  I guess these are all really good reasons to celebrate and have a giveaway.

So, without further ado, lets get on with it.

As a friend of mine mentioned to me, try and make it easy.  So here are the 5 different ways you can earn an entry into the contest.

1.  Respond to this post
2.  Join this blog
3.  Write about this in your own blog
4.  Facebook it
5.  Twitter about it

You will earn 1 point for each of these you complete, up to a total of 5. Just mention how many you did in your post.   I trust you.

The drawing will be on Wednesday the 10th in the evening and the winner will be able to choose any 1 (one) item that is available in my Etsy store. I will be posting a few more items within the next few days.

I have noticed that with jewelry, everyone has their own styles, likes and dislikes when it comes to what they will buy or wear.  I would like to learn what your preferences are. But feel free to talk about other things if you want. It is up to you.

The question of the day is:

What do you look for in a piece of jewelry? Do you find certain designs more appealing? what catches your eye???

Good Luck.
