After Black Friday Madness Giveaway & Nov ABS Piece


It is the day after the madness of Black Friday - Yeah!  Mom and I promised a giveaway and here it is.

We are going to giveaway one of our "ThumBOWLina" bowls and some of our beads.  The bowl colors are transparent yellow's in the center and transparent greens on the outer edge.  The beads are blue (6) and pink (3).


All you have to do to participate is leave us a comment and a way to contact you if you are the winner.


You can even enter extra times by blogging about our giveaway or Facebooking about the giveaway.  But make sure you leave us comments that you either blogged or Facebooked so we can enter your name for the extra drawings.


We will have the drawaing on December 3rd around 10am Eastern.  I will either have mom draw a name out of a hat or see if we can get Lily or Zola to draw a name for us.  So, get to commenting or blogging to enter to win.


This months ABS Challenge piece is called Madonna Pietra degli Scrovigni by Marie Spartali Stillman, Watercolor, gouache and gum arabic.



Mom had the idea of using a set of roses we hadn't enameled yet and acid etch beads to create our piece for this months challenge.


Both mom and I really liked the colors in this month's painting.  I decided to enamel the roses in ivory and spruce green.  Not my usual style (usually like lots and lots of colors), but I am happy with the way the color of the roses turned out.



I made beads with ivory glass and frit and then I acid etched them.  I really like the muted look of the beads and they went perfectly with the painting.


I love the accent beads (pearls and Czech beads) mom used to accent the necklace and then finishing it off with a Sterling Silver toggle "Leaf" clasp.  Mom does an awesome job of creating jewelry, even though that is not her favorite thing to do. 

So, that is our piece for this months challenge.

I plan on posting some pendants and a set of beads on Etsy tomorrow, so keep your eyes open for that.

Make sure you leave us a comment so you can be entered into our drawing.
