Aloha, Friends…a little give away for you!

by Cindy on July 14, 2010


Thank you for stopping by my humble blog although I’ve been blogging less and less as the summer wears on.  I find we’re outside more than ever which mean less time in blogland.  I had an idea though, especially for those of you who are no where near the beach….if I could package up the feel of the warm sand under your toes, or the sound of the crashing waves, or that delicious ocean breeze…I would.   Instead I’d like to offer a small token to say thank you to the many blog followers/friends that stop by.   I truly appreciate your visits, especially when you let me know you were here.


I’d love to give away this pendant on a long copper chain – a hand stamped copper tag with Swarovski crystals, Thai silver charms and etched lampwork discs.    There’s nothing you need to do to enter….if you happen to be a member of my Google Friends over there on the right side bar, you’ll be entered!  If you’re just stopping by and have not clicked to “Follow” my blog, please do and you’ll be entered too!  I’ll announce the winner some time -probably late, knowing me- on Saturday, July 17th.


Now while on that ocean-island-Aloha-theme, I wanted to share a piece  with you that I have in the July issue of Bead Trends.  Gosh, how did half the month go by and I haven’t posted it yet?  This summer is flying by way too fast!  This one’s titled “Road to Hana”…. I think it’s those winds and twists, or maybe the natural colors that reminded me of the famous Hawaiian scenic road.  We went here on our honeymoon.   If you’ve been, you’ll know what they mean when they say, “It’s not the destination that matters, it’s the journey.”  🙂



Thank you for stopping by & good luck in the drawing!

Beautiful designs. I love “Road To Hana”. The textures and patinas are fabulous and the piece as a whole reminds me of the beauty of a written language. (Does this make sense?) And what a lovely pendant!! Very nice giveaway indeed 🙂

Wow, Cindy, your giveaway necklace is gorgeous! Just the mention of the Road to Hana brings back such wonderful memories for me too! What a cool place! I want to go back! The people along that road live such a simple life in such a beautiful place. Sigh! I am happy to be already entered in your contest since I’ve been a follower of yours for forever! I just won a copy of the July issue of Bead Trends, so I’ll be looking forward to seeing your jewelry in there. I haven’t been posting much either, too many summer things going on…but I’m having fun! Cheers!

I briefly saw your Spiral Roses project in a friend’s magazine recently and just had to search you out on the internet. I am so glad that I did. Just looking at your recent work here is filling me with so much inspiration and desire to learn. And, of course, who can resist a giveaway?

Wow, I LOVE this Road to Hana necklace, it’s absolutely beautiful!

Cindy, that wire necklace — Road to Hana– is just amazing! It reminds me of the wonderful wirework that you did on my mokume gane bead! It’s very Grecian but with a modern twist– I just love it. I’m going to commission you to make me some of those elements and I’m going to string an “everyday” wearable necklace for myself using some of my beads with it instead of the pearls. I think it will be fabulous! Watch for my Etsy convo. Enjoy the beach and give the boys a hug for me!
