And the Winner Is...

This will be the first of 10 prizes, each in honor of 100 posts on my way to reaching 1,000.  I took a look back at the early days of my blog and counted up to see that I reached my 100th post in about March, 2005.  Looking back at what was going on, I was exploring the potential of selling jewelry at craft shows and was about to do my very first one so a lot of the blog entries had to do with creating new designs to sell, getting all the accoutrements for the booth, figuring out the credit card process and all kinds of other details involved with having a booth for the first time.  Sadly, I can't say that I had much success at that show (although I did have fun!) and I probably would have tried at least one more time, but my life was about to change in serious and drastic ways not too long after that...had I only known!

Before I announce the winner, let's see what she will receive:

A copy of "Resin Alchemy" by Susan Lenart Kazmer.

Clockwise from top:  Venetian glass disk bead, polymer clay wing pendant, small wood tile with bird, 2 patinated red brass filigree pieces, pink ceramic dangle, brown ceramic pendant and green ceramic pendant.

Clockwise from top: tiger ebony wood oblong pendant, orange, pink and white lucite flowers, tiger ebony wood puffy wood ring, burgundy chiffon ribbon, tiger ebony wood flat ring, another puffy ring, white and gold star ribbon, and glass "fire and ice" nugget beads.

Clockwise from upper right:  blue/green/silver fused dichroic glass cab, Swarovski flatback crystals, frosted purple glass rounds, silver plated padlock charms, and a strand of pink, lavender and clear lampwork glass beads.

And the lucky winner of this first prize package is:  Shaiha.  Congratulations, Shaiha!  Please contact me via email with your mailing address so I can get your package out to you.

Next winner will be announced on Wednesday, 4/16.  See you then!

There has been so much serendipity in this blog hop. Person after person is getting similiar, or even , as in your case identical beads in their exchanges. Perhaps i should start a list
