a lovely little shop giveaway


Today's giveaway is from sweet Chelsea of A Lovely Little Shop, for this peacock ore necklace, "Eyes Are Mosaics." Chelsea makes stunning, cosmic jewelry, influenced by a childhood growing up in a rural area in which her nearest neighbour was three miles away. She would spend her time outdoors with her brothers and sister, digging through streams for quartz and pyrite, climbing trees, and building forts. It sounds like a perfect childhood, and today she works with peacock ore to remind her of her mineral collections. I chose this piece for the giveaway because it reminded me of one of my favourite paintings by Carly, Bornite.

To enter, please visit Chelsea's shop, and leave a comment telling me which one of her pieces is your favourite. I love Lateral Noise myself!

This giveaway is open to everyone. I will select a winner at random on Friday -- good luck!

    ReplyDelete
  60. I like that your choice for this giveaway was influenced by a painting :) Both the necklace and the painting are beautiful. I also hadn't heard about the material 'peacock ore' before so I looked some stuff up and this is what I found; "Peacock ore can be used to break up energy blockages and can open up and cleanse the Crown Chakra. It makes an excellent meditation stone." Interesting! I definitely could use some of that around my neck.

    My favourite item in her shop is the glacial peacock ore ring in shades of green. Mesmerizing!
