Valentine's Day Giveaway ENDS 2/1/11

With Valentine's day being our next big holiday coming up - and less than 15 days away. I've decided to help one of you with your gift giving. The winner(s) will get to choose ONE of the following prize packs:
Winner will get to choose from one of the prize packs.

****ALERT**** due to problems signing in with google - you don't have to have a google account you can use an OPEN-ID - Get an OPEN ID (that's the sign up page for getting your own OPEN ID
If you have problems/questions email me at Frawgz.Dezignz@gmail.com 
I want everyone to get credit for entering if they're interested but if you don't contact me, I don't know there's a problem. ***

Rules:
Each comment = 1 entry. Each entry/comment has a # next to it when posted. The total # will be entered into random.org and 1 or 2 random #s will be drawn at the conclusion of the contest.

--1 winner will be chosen - winner can choose one prize pack to have made to their size specifications and mailed out by first class (domestic or international) mail. Package sent to a US based winner will be sent with signature confirmation and insurance meaning YOU will be the one required to sign for the package, and ONLY you.
**UPDATE** - If the total number of valid entries hits 50 by the deadline I will award a second prize pack to a second winner, however, the second prize pack may not be delivered by Valentine's Day but within a week or so afterward. 
Second winner will get to choose from one of the prize packs listed - they do not have to choose a different pack than the first winner, so if both winners want the same prize that is acceptable. - There will be 2 winners IF & ONLY IF there are 50 valid comments on the blog by noon on 1/31/11 - original end date 1/31/11; however due to prior obligations I won't be able to close the giveaway until sometime during the afternoon of 2/1/11. So you've got an extra 24 hours or so to enter.

**Contest will end 2/1/11 sometime in the afternoon/early evening of that date not 1/31/11 as originally noted. I will close the blog to entries. I will verify the total number of comments and will go to random.org and enter the total number of entries, and select either one or two numbers for it to choose at random for the winners. If we get to 50 entries by the end of the contest there will be two winners. The 2nd winner however will likely NOT receive their package before Valentine's day but within a week or so afterward. I will post a new blog post announcing the winner(s) later in the day on 1/31/2011 after notifying the winner(s) by the contact method they've given me. The #1 winner has 48 hours to respond from noon on the 31st and choose their prize. If they do not contact me within 48hours, the 2nd winner (if there is one) will be moved up to 1st place and another random # will be drawn to fill in as prize #2.
In order for me to ensure delivery within the US of the prize pack for the first place winner by Valentine's day I need to know the winner's choice as soon as possible so that it can be customized, packaged and shipped with time for the post office to deliver it.

-International entrants are eligible, just please note that due to postal transit times your package will likely not arrive to you before the promised delivery date of Valentine's Day.

1. Copper & stainless steel 20gauge double spiral "Gallery" set of chainmaille: this includes a necklace, bracelet & earrings in the double spiral weave with alternating copper & stainless steel. 
- This photo is a representation of the style of the set you'll receive, only the necklace is shown.

2. Pure Copper "Gallery" Set - necklace, earrings, and bracelet in 100% copper. Weave will be my choice - gsg, jpl or another type of chain - per discussion with winner. *This set can be negotiated to any combination of metals at discretion of winner & myself* (next 5 photos are examples of weaves only, the photos show designs not the actual materials& are only to be used to see different types of designs I can do in 100% copper. Other designs may be available. Entire set must be made of all 1 weave - weave name is listed UNDER each photograph)
Double Connector Byzantine - 1/2" wide

Vipera Berus - 1/4" wide


Jens Pind Linkage JPL3 - abt 3/8" wide (round chain)

 GSG - as photographed 11/16" wide 
will be in ROUND wire not square
can be same or smaller at 11/32" (or about 5/16")

3. Pair-a-day Earring pack - of 7 pairs of beaded shaggy loops earrings in seven color combinations - to be agreed upon by winner and myself when winner is notified.

These are examples of the types of earrings offered

These are examples of the weave only. 
Difference being round profile stainless steel rings
like the black one shown in the 1st photograph
 **if you're a guy and want your own design but don't want something this heavy for a necklace - I can substitute the following:
This is 'Full Persian 6in1' in 20g stainless
a slightly more delicate necklace than the previous ones
but closer to a traditional chain. - still would be same as posted
up to 24" necklace and a matching bracelet 

5. If you're not into jewelry and would like to have some fractal art instead: A custom set - unique to you - and not reproduced for sale by me anywhere else ever - An 8x10, (2) 5x7s and (5) 4x6 prints each unique and suitable for framing.

There you have it the prizes - YOU MUST follow the rules to be properly credited. If you have questions on entries - email me - frawgz.dezignz@gmail.com & I will help explain it further to you.


The more things you do - the more entries you get, the more likely you are to win.
Get started on those entries, have fun, and good luck.


 

~~Privacy Policy~~ Your information is safe. I will not sell, share or otherwise redistribute any contact information to anyone for any reason. The only reason I ask for an email address is so I can contact you should you win so you can claim your prize. 

If you're uncomfortable leaving your email address on the blog where others can view it, you can email me your contact info to frawgz.dezignz@gmail.com - but you MUST still post a comment for every entry you wish to claim on the blog. 

Emailing me your entries and asking me to post them is not valid - unless prior arrangements have been made - such as person signing up is in a combat zone or otherwise contacts me and I agree to it in advance - do not email me with your entries and expect me to just say 'sure I'll post for you'. Because only in SOME rare circumstances will I post for you.
Again I WILL NOT SELL, DISTRIBUTE OR GIVE OUT in ANY way - anyone's contact info for any reason other than to contact you should you win the contest.

*note rules may seem a bit strict, but in past giveaways people have tried to bend the rules and therefore have made the requirements a bit more strict.*

Ooooooo...wishlist entry...

I LOVE heavier gauge bracelets. I love the look of something like the GSG photo (under the man's section, where you talk about the wire being round not square), done in a 3-4 row "cuff" type bracelet. I am just really attracted to the weaves that look like they are more than a single "strand".

Ariane said...

1 post with your favorite colors: I love red...deep dark sultry reds.

Ariane said...

1 post with the size you wear for bracelets (in inches or cm) and what type of clasp(s) you prefer for necklaces:

I like loose bracelets, so 8.5 in

I prefer toggle clasps on necklaces.

Ariane said...

1 post with the ideal anklet length for you (in inches or cm) and what type of clasps you prefer for anklets;

I don't wear anklets, but when I did, I like them loose as well, so 10-10.5", with heavy duty lobster clasps. Easy to open, lol.

Ariane said...

1 post with your ideal length for earrings (if you wear them) and whether you prefer fishook, leverback, kidney wires, clip-ons, or modern body piercings (tunnels, expansions etc)

I really like fishhook back, but shorter than average. I often have to snip off the end or bend in the end on store bought blanks because they poke my neck. I'm really fond of modern twists on earring backs as art, like this: http://www.etsy.com/listing/60108997/not-so-mini-nautilus-18g-sterling-silver

I like earrings between 1-2" long if they dangle.

Ariane said...

1 post with the ideal necklace length for you (in inches or cm) and what type of clasp(s) you prefer for necklaces;

I like the pendants that hang pretty close to the cleavage area, so the necklaces change accordingly...18" to 20" usually.

I completely love toggle clasps on necklaces. (you asked this question twice btw, see the question above this). As for bracelets, I prefer they not have a clasp at all, and slide over my fingers.
