Giveaway from Goddess Amour!
This months giveaway comes to us from Goddess Amour, Goddess inspired jewelry with a vintage and feminine flair. The lovely owner Kim, has graciously donated one of her beautiful vintage necklaces titled, Blood of Isis. I had the chance to speak with Kim, here's what she had to say.
1. How long have you been crafting beautiful Goddess inspired jewelry?
I have been making beaded jewelry for about 9 years now. It all started when a friend brought her beads over and taught me how to string a necklace. Needless to say, I was hooked, and instantly became a ‘bead junkie’! The rest of what I know, I taught myself. Over the years, I’ve tried my hand at a number of different styles of jewelry before finally finding my niche with the Goddess-inspired jewelry. I’ve sold various pieces locally throughout the years, but most recently I decided to start selling on Etsy.
2. Do you have a favorite product that you make?
I simply love making prayer beads! It is both inspiring and humbling to think that I am crafting something that someone will be using in their worship—a tool to help them connect with the Divine. Also, I find the act of making prayer beads to be a very meditative process, and one that I put my whole self into.
3. Please explain the item you are giving away.
My patron Goddess is Isis, the ancient Egyptian Mother Goddess, and this is the necklace that I created in her honor. I gave it the name: “The Blood of Isis,” after an ancient Egyptian amulet that was often made of red wood, stone or glass.
This necklace features a luscious vintage Lucite bead. This type of bead is known as “moonglow”, for its soft, moon-like sheen. The color is simply stunning, and is a wonderful-cherry red that reminds me of a piece of candy! The bead measures 15mm x 11mm and is topped with a 4mm garnet gemstone and surrounded by antiqued brass bead caps, and finished off with antiqued brass cable chain. The length of the necklace is 18-inches.
Ok so now time for the rules. Go to Kim's shop, find a product that you like, and come back to here to comment on it. Also for extra credit, check out Kim's lovely blog and become a follower. For even more extra credit, follow this blog. The giveaway will last for one week, at which time I will announce the winner.
I hope everyone enjoys exploring the Goddess inspired jewelry by Goddess Amour. Thank you to Kim for her generous donation! Have fun playing!
