RAK time......

I decided it must be time again for another
{random act of kindness/blog giveaway}
now I've always had paperart RAK's in the past
but not today....
today it's a piece of my Jewelry
and typical Gill style
it's gotta be a little old something mixed with a little new something...
so here tis
'the Keeper of Bling'
Fabby bits I've used to make the 'keeper of bling' are - Rusty pitted old key, Brass Double Rollo Chain, Swarovski Crystal, & all Solid Brass Findings

I use Brass in my jewelry because over time it developes a rich patina, adding warmth and charm to the pieces I create.

but if you prefer it to be more golden and sparkly,
all you have to do is give it a little rub over with some gentle brass or jewelry cleaner and it looks like new again :)
If you'd like to see more of my jewelry pieces
here's a link to my shop

Now if you'd like to win my
**** The Keeper of Bling ****

all you have to do is
leave me a comment in in the comments of this post.

Some time soon I'll get one of my children to draw a name out

and that person will be the new owner of

'The Keeper of Bling'

Your pieces and ATCs have been so inspiring in my own crafts journey - thanks for such amazing creations! And when the chance to win one is there, well...who wouldn't take a chance? :-)

I have long lusted after your unique pieces of jewellery - and positively drool over your Etsy shop.

You are permanently linked to my blog - cos I just can't resist popping over several times a week to see what you have been up too.

I still treasure one of your 'signature' ATC's with machine stitching on it - which I was lucky enough to get in a swap.

I haven't been able to emulate you and do some machining - I leave that to the expert.

Glad to see that you have found your wonderful 'niche' in your jewellery - and I would really appreciated being included in your draw.

Have a great weekend. Its a Bank Holiday over here so its bound to be a wet one.
