A celebratory thank-you giveaway!

So a few days ago I hit the iconic 100 Google friend connect followers. It's odd how your blog is judged by that follower count. I'm nearly at 300 thanks to secret google reader followers I discovered (hello there!) ;)
I thought it was time to say thank-you to all my beautiful followers (yes, you!) and offer up something I've made with my own two hands!
I've decided to offer up one of my spiked gemstone collar necklaces, as I now have 4 different coloured stones for you to choose from so you're bound to find one you like! :)
There's the original Opalite (pearly white) Kyanite (blue) and then I got 2 new strings of gemstone spikes a few days ago, Amethyst (purple) and the Jasper (polka dot cream). I love them! There's more  stones/colours I'd love to get my paws on, including quartz, goldstone, green agate and some tourmaline but I should probably just calm down a bit first! ;)

The winner will get to choose their stone of choice and colour of chain (gold/silver) to be made into a necklace like the ones in my shop here.
The rules are you must be a follower of my blog to enter! that's mandatory, as it's a special giveaway for followers of course. There's a few extra entries you can earn such as tweeting, or leaving a comment.

This is a rafflecopter giveaway so if you're in a reader you'll need to click here to see my blog and the post! :)

  1. I have entered - what a lovely giveaway!! I think it's wonderful that you're giving away something you have made, rather than the usual bought items :) if I was so lucky to win I would choose the beautiful blue Kyanite gemstones, I just bought a pastel blue midi dress and I think the Kyanite would look delightful paired with that and some nude shoes! I have very pale skin, so this dreamy blue colour has become a new favourite :) x

  2. I've entered the giveaway - the necklaces are beautiful! I would wear it with a plain collared blouse; it's definitely a piece that can complete an outfit! xx

  3. I entered the giveaway and I'd wear it over buttoned up shirts for sure!

  4. Congratulations on reaching over 100 followers! So happy and proud for you : ) How do you see how many followers you have with the secret/anonymous ones? Didn't know you could do that!

    Anyway. Once I win (ahem) the giveaway I'll probably need to buy a black collared dress. Something in a soft fabric with no sleeves. I think the creamy stones in the Jasper necklace would look great against it!

    And I'm so excited about your new colors. I got a little excited over the other stones that you want to purchase too! Quartz would be positively beautiful, and I had to google tourmaline to see what kind of stone that is, but its beautiful as well!

  5. With a LBD! :)

  6. Thank you sooo much :) 
    If you follow your own blog in google reader, you can click it in the list of blogs you follow, click the arrow and select statistics or something like that! 

  7. I would wear it with a sheer cream blouse with yellow skinnies
