Glowing Optical Monstrosity - Giveaway!

I recently created an optical monstrosity! Some may even call it an eyesore. Whatever you may call it, it can be yours if you like it!

This lampwork bead has an earthy base and 25 glowing handpulled millefiori eyeballs. It is approximately 38x25mm or 1.5x1 inches. It's HUGE!

The choker is made with 12 strands of black hemp twine and is 13 inches long, 7mm or 5/16in. thick with a 5 in. braided tail to be able to make it a tad longer if need be.



There's one way to win!

Go to the Fire Divas Etsy page on our blog, pick a favorite and leave a comment about it below! CLICK HERE This changes about once a week for your viewing pleasure!

One entry per person

Sign up ends December 31

(Up to $5.00 shipping cost will be covered, if it is greater than $5 winner will have to pay for the rest. I'm sorry if this sounds harsh, but it can be really expensive to send stuff to Australia.)

Winner will be picked by my cool cat Maynard! Good luck everybody!



*Edited to mention that everyone can enter and the winner is more than welcome to do what ever they want with it, gift it or cut the bead out and use it for a creation of your own! No worries!

What did you call this amazing piece of artistry? A monstrosity?? An eyesore?? Seriously?? You can't be serious!

So, how do I pick a favorite? Must I really? If pushed, I think I'd pick Lauren's Christmas Tree Cat Lampwork Bead. Put a big smile on my face! :)

Definitely Lori's snowball earring pair!
Sparkly and seasonal.

OMG! Are Divas eligible??? Just in case...I'm in loerve with Theresa's silvered forrest set! Gorgeous!

I miss you and need to talk to you but I seem to be running out the door to doctors all the time!

Theresa of Tease Beads has created an exquisite set in the 'Silver Forest'. The wonderful green/blue base color accented richly with the silver beading is an incredible combination, plus the fact that this is a one of kind glass makes it a tantalizing offering that would be quite the showpiece.

Eventhough I'm freezing here in So. Florida at 37 degrees (yes, 37 in Ft. Lauderdale!), I really like the icicles by Icarus Beads! I'd probably wear them in the middle of summer thinking of cooling off.

I was digging the Jambalya the Squished Bicone and the Pandora White.Merry Making slipped into my vision of Christmas as well. If I have to pick one and use Christmas as my guide I'll go with Pandora White,because it glows from within! Bash'r
