I apologize for the delay in announcing the winners of the giveaway! Life and Pearl have gotten in the way and I've been trying desperately to get some sleep.
I'm disappointed not to have gotten some more comments on the post, but the response I did get is very helpful in moving forward. Thanks to all of you. The good news for those who did comment is that you're ALL winners! How could I eliminate two of you?!
So, Sheila, Somdra ;-), Marcia, Judith and Lisa, if you'll all visit my shop and go to the soldered pendants section. You can choose one of these listings, OR go to the prints reproductions section and pick a square or circle print (sorry no rectangles right now) and I'll make a wood tile pendant with a resin dome like the one in the giveaway post. OR, you can pick one of wood burning pendants pictured in this listing! So many choices! Email me at laura [at] laurabolterdesign.com and describe your pick and tell me where you'd like it shipped or how I can get it to you. (Lisa, I'd love to deliver you pendant personally, however a trip to Israel isn't doable at the moment!)
About the pendants pictured here—I've spent way too much money at Michaels recently so that I can experiment with some new supplies and tools. I've had the wood burning idea in the back of my mind for a while because it's sort of become this cool, trendy technique (not like the traditional wildlife burnings we're familiar with). After the designs are quickly sketched on a one inch wood tile, I use a very fine tip wood burning tool and to "draw" the lines. Then with acrylic paint or pencils the designs are colored and then have a bail attached or are set in a bezel. After some thought about pricing I'll make them available for sale in the shop, too.
I look forward to hearing from the winners!
