The July Giveaway Has Arrived!

Wow. I have finally taken the plunge and opened my own little etsy store, Obstinate Pursuit. It's been a long, long time coming! In celebration, I'm sponsoring this month's giveaway - and giving you a little preview of a bracelet tutorial that will be available for sale in the shop this weekend.*


Leave a comment on this post before 12 Noon (GMT) on the 30th July and I'll choose one winner at random to receive a copy of the tutorial and all of the materials that you need to make a bracelet - including Miyuki Seed Beads and Swarovski Pearls. I'll announce the winner on the 31st July.

* And, just in case you're wondering. It's not available at the moment, because I still haven't chosen a name. So, if you'd like an extra chance to win the tutorial, please visit me at Obstinate Pursuit and leave me a name suggestion! If I choose your suggestion, I'll send you a copy of the tutorial too!

Beautiful. Congrats on you're new store. I have an Etsy store as well, it's a great venue. I love your new tutorial. It's cool how just changing a couple of colors in the same pattern creates a completely different effect. Love beads! :D

How about naming it Starlight Pearls?

Maneki said...

I don't normally buy tutorials nowadays as I mostly do my own designs and get inspiration either from online or reading magazines, but I'd love to get my hands on this! The design is just so lovely! Especially in purple and silver -- gorgeous!

As I mentioned on you blog, it reminds me of a close-up photo I took of the abundance of snow-in-the-mountain flowers we have had this summer. And it echoes of old times, ornaments from anno dazumal. Can't pinpoint, but in a way it makes me think of tudor roses actually.
