Blog Giveaway!!

You may (or may not) have noticed my recent launch of a polymer clay button section in my Etsy shop, to which I am still adding new pieces.  To help launch this new section, I'm hosting a giveaway on this blog!  I'm giving away THREE buttons.  Each of three lucky recipients will win one of the following three buttons:

A) A burgundy-based triangle with ropes and dots of green, yellow, pink, and white.  This triangle is ~ 1.25 inches (3 cm) on each side.

B) An orange square with translucent ropes, and dots of white and purple.  Each side is 1 inch long (2.5 cm)

3) A mustard-yellow/light brown rectangle, surrounded by a shimmering white rope and dotted with white, teal, and a deep purple.  This button measures 1 x 1.25 in (2.5 x 3 cm)

Any of these buttons can be used as a closure on a piece of jewelry, an embellishment on any number of crafts (just don't send it through the washer!), or some other use you may find for it.  
To enter the giveaway, leave me a comment with a name and link to an artist (other than yourself) you think I should feature on my blog, and why you like that artist.  I'll use some of the suggestions in the future!  All comments must be in by next Wednesday (March 4th), and I will announce the winners on Thursday the 5th.  Button A will go to the first winner selected, B to the second, and C to the third.

If your comment doesn't automatically link to a blogger profile, be sure to also leave me a way to contact you - a link to your blog, shop, profile, or an email address will suffice!

Now go find a favorite artist!

Neat contest; great idea!

I love and utilize the wonderful raku work of MAK (Marianne Kaspersan) at MAK@MAKUstudio.com. She is great to work with and you'll love getting to know her, if you don't already!

Your works are just grand. At close-up your buttons looks like the revived fairy tale, and thus I recognized myself in the miraculous world of the Beauty while viewing your polymer clay buttons - that was the magical indeed transformation. Thank you!
