Aunt Nancy's Handmade Soap and Jewelry From Tucson
Bring you a a Drawing to win a lovely handmade necklace!

Spring is here! The birds are singing everywhere, the desert is blossoming, and I feel good. I feel like celebrating! And what better way to celebrate than to offer my good customers a chance to win a beautiful handmade necklace, made by ~yours truly~ me!

The Drawing:

Besides making soap, I also make jewelry. My jewelry can be seen here: Jewelry From Tucson. From now until the end of day April 30th, I am offering all customer making a purchase a chance to win a handmade necklace, retail value $60. Actually, you will have a choice between two necklaces!

Drawing Rules: Make a purchase from Aunt Nancy's Handmade Soap website, Aunt Nancy's Etsy Shop, or Jewelry From Tucson up until end of day April 30th. Each order will be assigned a number as I receive the order (sequential number starting with number 1), and you will be notified of your number. On May 1, I will use Random.org to generate a random number for me. The customer with that number will be declared the winner, and will have a choice of ONE of the necklaces pictured above!

The first necklace is made with carnelian, glass, sterling silver, and a couple of freshwater pearls. The second necklace is made with turquoise from Arizona, brown aventurine, and sterling silver. Each necklace has a retail value of $60.00!

Carnelian Necklace: This necklace is made using carnelian beads of different shapes and sizes, including 10mm barrel beads, 8mm rondells, and 6mm rounds. I have included four very unusual looking long glass tube beads, with a circle design on them. The pendant is made from a sterling silver chandelier earring finding. I added dangles of a long carnelian tube bead, small carnelian beads, and freshwater pearls, all accented with Bali sterling silver spacers. It is finished off with a sterling silver toggle clasp for easy fastening. The length of the necklace is 21 inches. The length of the pendant is 2 1/4 inches.

Accented with lovely brown aventurine beads and Bali sterling silver spacers. And finished off with a sterling silver lobster claw clasp for a secure hold. This necklace is 17 1/4 inches long.
