(I am re-posting this because the original post wasn't correctly done... ) 
I can't count how many times I have stumbled on blogs with give -ways and I would think, I ought to do that someday. Unfortunately every time I set out to create something for the give away, it wouldn't come out right and so I would throw it in my 'recycle' box (where I throw all my faulty bead work for dismantling and re-creating). And when I get to make something that was give-away worthy, I would sell it right away because I needed the money. It finally dawned on me that if I continue at that rate, I would never give away anything!!

Anyway, earlier today, i wrote a blog just because I needed to. It has been awfully quiet around here and I know that I won't be creating anything until mid April, and because I didn't want half the year gone before I blog I decided to. Then it dawned on me that I can keep the activity here by offering a give-away. I simply need to pick something from my stash.

So, the piece I will give away is not (in my books) worthy of a give-away, but I hope the receiver will not mind it. I have decided my first give-away will be an item I created for me. Yes, I didn't give it the sort of attention I would, an item I would sell or would give to someone as a present. But I like it as it is and would wear it comfortably because It is like me 'durable but imperfect'.

So here it is. The bracelet that is going to one lucky person. It is adjustable so don't worry about it fitting you. It is free.....well, sort of; there is a catch.

All you have to do is:
1. Drop a comment, tell me  (a) how you found this blog, (b) why you stopped and (c) what you would want to see featured in future.....Then humour me (although you don't have to); tell me why you want this bracelet.

The offer stands from this minute till March 2nd 2013 21:00 GMT+1 (Rome time). If there is more than one participant, I will randomly pick one person and send this bracelet on it's way. Your location is irrelevant. The winner will be announced here.

Warning: It is not a perfect item, but it is wear-able

P.S. You can follow this blog or follow me on facebook if you like; it will make me happy (this is not a requisite for getting the bracelet, you will make the draw if you make a comment as requested above, even without following me.
