SMS giveaway - sea urchin earrings



I never got to take part in the sew mama sew giveaway day (sms) before. I just always took my chance with all the other participants which gave the possibility to win some of their beautiful stuff. Even now I am a little bit late...  

...better late than never, mh? ^^

So here we go! For the sms I'd like to give one of my sea urchin earrings!




I already showed you the first of my sea urchin earrings (I am still in the process of making new ones and to experiment with colours and materials). And yes, I'll also show you more of the process how to make them but this may still need some time. I just got my date to defend my thesis! Finally! HA! And this will (for sure) occupy a lot of my time in the near future. But I already started to write about the first steps of making the mold... so have a little patience. :)


The earrings are made from a silicon mold (from a real sea urchin from the mediterranean sea, better to say: from Formentera!) with polymer clay (fimo). I drilled little hole inside with my dremel and painted the surface with different kind of acrylic colours (classic ones, aqua acrylic paints, metal effect). I tried to take pictures from the earrings with different light sources and background but it is difficult to catch the real colour. They are in shades of blues, a wee tiny bit green and bronze and copper accents at the top! 


Now for the rules part... Yes, rules, there are always rules ^^

- the giveaway is open to all (as long as the mail service may reach it ^^)
- the giveaway will be open until May 25 at 5 p.m. PST 
- the winner will be noted by May 27 

Please be sure you'll leave me a way to contact you! Either you have included / attached your email adress to your account or otherwise write it down at the comment section (just like this name (a) host (dot) com so your email won't be found by searching engines). 

For a chance to win leave me a comment and tell me which of my earrings (I made a lot of earrings ^^) in my blog you'll like best. 

If you're a follower, just leave a second comment for another chance to win :)


There you go!

PS: And of course I'll add some crafting stuff also! If there is anything you are really interested in, don't hesitate to mention... chances are there you may be lucky ^^
