Bloggy Giveaway Carnival #6: The Cross Watch

This Giveaway is now officially closed. For more information on how to purchase these products, please go to GiBee Designs. Thanks for participating!

Bloggy Giveaway Carnival is hosted by Shannon at her Bloggy Giveaways blog (also from Rocks in my Dryer).

My sixth and final Giveaway is probably one of the coolest watches I've made. It is a fresh, big, and funky sterling silver and Marcasite (white iron pyrite) cross face, with black and silver foil pressed rectangular glass beads (I think they may actually be a deep, dark purple, but they look black). There are sterling Bali spacer beads in between the glass beads, and a cool sterling silver cutout cross charm and a hand-wrapped black Swarovski dangle on the top of the cross. The watch is made with a stretch band, but is very comfortable on the arm.

Sadly, I don't think the pictures does this piece of jewelry any justice whatsoever! It is one of my favorites, and definitely for the bold at heart! This design was originally made by a bead supplier in a class they have, and I loved it so much that I've adopted it! I know you'll love it too!

How can you win??? Leave a comment along with your email address, and your blog or website link where I can contact you. IMPORTANT: I MUST have a valid email address to contact you (if you fill out the blogger comment form properly, your email address will only be seen by me).

Updated to Add: You MAY enter for one, three, or all six drawings, but you may only enter your name once in each of the drawings. Let me know if that doesn't make sense. Also... I think Google changed things up on me! Now, when you comment, you need to leave your email address within the comment section, but in order to maintain spammers from getting your email, I would suggest that you use the following format (with your info, of course!):

kissesof[dot]sunshine[at]yahoo[dot]com

I promise I'll figure it out. Please check back by Monday, 2/4/08 to see if you've been drawn.

Also, I changed my comments so they pop up, I hope that makes it easier with six places to enter at one time! Have fun!

The jewelry will be sent out regular postal service, unless you live in Canada (in which case, I'm not sure how to do that, but it will probably still be with the USPS).

The drawings are open to both US and Canadian addresses. The Giveaway will be closed (comments section) by noon on Friday, February 1!
