Christmas Giveaway

Hello everyone, I hope your Christmas preparations are going well?  

My Christmas gift to you this year is a pair of earrings that I drew from my Snow Crystal tatting pattern and then laser-cut out of Perspex.  I think clear Perspex makes them look "icy" and realistic (apart from their size of course!).  They are hung from sterling silver ear wires.

I'm wearing a pair myself today as I'm typing this.  They are lovely, lightweight,
and perfect for this time of year!
 I hope you'll like them.




Please leave a comment to be entered in the draw,
which will take place next Sunday, the 16th of December.
Please only leave one comment and I'll not publish any answers myself
so as to make counting easier!
(but thank you in advance for all your comments)

I'm afraid this may mean whoever wins
might not receive the earrings in time for Christmas
but I just didn't manage to get organised any earlier.
See it as a New Year gift.  :-)

I've enjoyed working at making drawings of my tatting patterns and as you can see below, just small changes from the same pattern create quite different looks.  All four designs below are based on my Snow Crystal design but I just slightly changed the way I drew them or added an extra element here and there.



The white one is also clear Perspex but I have not yet removed the protective sheet.
Makes me think they'd look nice in white too though...

So that's it for this blogpost, back to studies for me for another week.  Good luck for the draw if you're entering it!

Best wishes,
Frivole

  7. They are indeed lovely! Do you use a personal cutter? In my library world we know of a few people who have personal 3D printers but I believe they are not the same as laser cutters.

  37. I found this post just in time! The acrylic earrings are amazing! I had to look up Perspex, as I had never heard of it - obviously a high quality acrylic. And it holds up to laser cutting, which itself is also amazing, especially since you can create your own designs! You are introducing us to sll kinds of new and unique concepts! Thanks for the opportunity to enter the drawing!

  40. Just a quick note to tell the general public about a great man who brought my husband back to me after 11 years, his name is Dr. OKO. My husband was snatched from me by another woman when I went to see my sick mother, I came home to meet the house empty my husband was not at home, he wan’t picking call none will he call back. I was left alone with our 4 years old baby, he was gone for 11 years but just a month ago a friend of mine called me to tell about oko and she gave me his contact and I did contacted him and he told me my husband was with another woman. Also, he said he will bring back my husband within a few days, I thought it was a joke but behold my husband came home begging for forgiveness just as OKO promised. Off course I forgave my husband everything became normal even more that it was before. You too can be helped by him if interested through: okotemple@live.com or call/whatsapp: +2348131684022.
