It has been a busy holiday season and it has also been awhile since I have offered a free giveaway! It is something I love to do and have a lot of fun putting your names in the basket!
Today I am raffling off one of my hand-crafted, unbreakable, wire-wrapped necklace sets!
This lovely Red & Gold Necklace Set is made with gold, red, black and marbled green stone beads. The red swarovski beads accent the necklace and give it a sparkle. The brass wire is coiled around some of the beads giving it a graceful and unique look. This will look lovely with your outfit for the day!
Each link of the brass-plated wire was hand-made and wrapped around itself making the loop permanent.
This is one of the oldest techniques for making jewelry by hand.
The necklace is 22″ long but is easily adjustable to make it shorter as the hook simply fits into any of the wire-wrapped loops.
The earrings are made to match the necklace.
This necklace is dainty yet it will last a lifetime!
Please sign up by making a comment! As usual, I always love to hear from you….even if it is just a hi!
We will make the drawing the evening of Feb. 1st and announce it on Our Lady’s Feast Day of the Purification, Feb. 2nd.

Once again, thank you for your efforts to get all of us wives and mothers on the right track! But of course the spirit is willing… On days when everything is falling apart it seems so hard to give hubby a smile through the tumult when he walks in the door–wondering why you didn’t make the calls he wanted you to, or get his jacket washed, or even pick up the litter in the house!! 🙂 Ah, self control, as we respond through gritted teeth. It must be so nice to go to work every day and escape! Just kidding, I really wouldn’t trade my rowdy bunch and corresponding crosses for any one else’s. Thank you also for your give-aways of your lovely jewelry. May God give you the strength to keep up with everything that you do!!

Renee, I know how you feel! Often I feel like I am doing the daily homeschooling, dinner, etc… through gritted teeth as well. I know it’s more of an internal struggle, but it’s still there even if others around me don’t notice it. If only I could be super cheery all day with my living… like you said, the spirit is willing and wants it! Leane just posted a post on attitude (her latest post other than this one) and I have been wondering how to change attitude beyond just trying and praying. How can I truly love what I am doing at every moment; even when I am tired, etc… I am going to try reading the psalms like the lovely lady in her story; reading about joy. Perhaps it will infect me! So that’s on my to-do list for today… printing out a series of psalms and readings on joy to read when I notice I am in “this is hard” mode. and prayers right back at you!
…through gritted teeth. Love the honesty. The articles on attitude needn’t discourage, but encourage, knowing we are human and trying each day to better ourselves. Life is what it is, we just keep climbing upward. Truly, who is cheery all the time? It is something to strive for. By the way, the article Natalie is talking about is here.http://finerfem.wordpress.com/2013/07/06/my-little-story-about-attitude/ I posted it on Facebook today and that is why she saw it.
Know that you are an example of patience, long-suffering and holy motherhood, in spite of the every day struggles that you go through. 🙂
I love it!! It’s so beautiful!
This is a beautiful set, Leane! Thank you for all of your encouraging posts. I love getting a notice in my email that you have given us another gem!
