Another Fabulous ETTEAM Giveaway!! - Strands of Light

This month's ETTEAM giveaway is from etteam member Barb of StrandsofLight. She is offering a pair of distressed sterling silver hoops adorned with three tiny gemstones in autumn colors. They are the first in a series of four that Barb call Saisons (seasons) in her Etsy shop. The hammered and oxidized hoops are one inch in diameter and the bright stones are 2mm hand faceted rondelles of deep orange carnelian, bright lemony citrine, and sparkling green peridot. They are light weight, feminine, dark, and earthy. What a fabulous giveaway!!

A little about Barb:

"I grew up traveling the world in a military family and never knew any home for more than two years at a time. When I first passed through Montana, as an adult taking a cross country road trip, I found it emotionally very difficult to make myself drive out the other side of the state. It felt like I had found home for the first time in my life. It took me a while but I am home at last now living in the beautiful Flathead Valley at the gateway to Glacier National Park and loving every minute of it (even the occasional moose in the back yard).

I'm a sculptor at heart and I approach jewelry making from that perspective. I have worked with many different artistic mediums but the ones that always call me back are the tactile ones. My best work is accomplished when the raw materials come from the earth. I love watching a strand of silver or copper slowly transmute into something that can be worn and loved and I also love adorning that transformed metal with beautiful, organic stones."

So, how do you enter to win these gorgeous fall earrings? It's easy, you can enter up to 5 times by doing any or all of the options listed here (although the first one is mandatory).

  1. Barb, I know what you mean by finding home in Montana. I was so taken by Paradise, just a little west of you, I would love to move there!
    It was so hard to pick a favorite from your shop, but I think it would have to be the Deep Sunshine Earrings.
