Giveaway is now closed!! Thank you for particpating!

Can you believe it? Bloggy Giveaways is here again. It's amazing how time flies, but that's okay, because it means I can give away something to you! Are you excited? Do you wanna know what I'm giving away? Yeah? Okay, here it is...

Gurba Earrings

"Gurba Earrings" by Lagaz Designs (Melissa Muir).
Sterling Silver cross posts hammered and then bound with beautiful gold-filled wire. A simple, yet elegant pair of earrings, suitable for anything.
These earrings were inspired by a student of mine. We were making God's Eyes for a craft afternoon, and my student, M, was fooling around hanging the decorations off his ears. He told me, "Mrs. Muir, wouldn't these make great earrings?" And you know what? They do make great earrings. I told my student that I would name them after him, since he inspired me.

Since he inspired me, I'm giving them away to you, my lucky readers! I think everyone deserves a little bit of inspiration!

Melissa, your jewelry is absolutely beautiful! You truly have an eye for creating unique one of a kind designs that are feminine, classy and easy to wear everyday, not just on special occasions. I love to be able to feel comfortable wearing my jewelry all the time, not to have it sit in a box saving it for the right dressy occasion. Your jewelry is gorgeous and practical! My favorite item is the Lemon Quartz and Prehnite set you made for Annie. I love the soft colors, and the design of the necklace and earrings are just stunning! I can also see how nicely crafted your jewelry is.

BTW - I love the story behind the earrings that are part of this giveaway! Isn't it funny how students can sometimes inspire us too! Thank you for the opportunity to enter.
