Another with photos

OWOH was so much fun, I can't wait to do it again next year, but that is a long, long, long time away. Not really! But let's do a another giveaway anyway... this time just for followers of debvandet designs.  There aren't many of you (yet) so your chances of winning are really good!

On Sunday, March 7th, I will give away my Green Man microscope slide necklace and coordinating earrings.  Hopefully if the USPS cooperates the lucky winner will receive them in time for St. Patrick's Day.  No special reason why St. Patrick's Day, it's just the next holiday, and the Green Man necklace goes with the theme and needs a happy home.

The Green Man necklace has a soldered microscope slide pendant with Dover transparency of Celtic/Medieval man with sword and peacock, the back glass is frosted and embellished with green, gold, and silver alcohol inks. The double strand chain (approx. 20 inches long to top of pendant) and bail- accented with a faceted peridot bead -are made of assorted green seed beads with a silvery box clasp.  My husband loves Celtic design, mazes and labyrinths.  He always encourages me so I thought I'd create something a little less girly (okay -it really isn't, is it?) in honor of him.

The coordinating earrings have flat green glass beads stacked with 2 green seed beads, a silver bead, and a faceted "peridot" (it might be real peridot - lesson learned on documenting my materials here) on silver french wires.

The rules are so simple:
1.  You have to be a follower of debvandet designs
2.  You have to leave a comment saying count me in or something to that effect,
3.  If you're are selected as the winner you have to send me your mailing address ASAP so I can send out the necklace by Tuesday, March 9th.

have a happy day!


  1. One day left, I'd really love to see this set have a new home. More photos on flickr, too.

  2. I didn't realize you had a blog. Sorry. I think sometimes my computer eats emails from the yahoo group.

    I'd love to be entered into the drawing. Green and ironically red are my favorite colors. The kiddos tell me I'm an elf in disquise.

  3. Count me in, such pretty work on your blog! I would love to be entered at a chance to win the little green man! I am Irish, after all :0)

  4. My daughter loves all things celtic too from jewelry to Baleck (?) to music, to shamrocks, etc. etc. I'd love to give this great, unique design to her. Thanks for offering it.

  5. I am anonymous - last post but I don't qualify I guess for any of the "select profile" choices except anonymous. I don't have a blog or anything else like that so does that mean I'm not legit? Don't quite get this??

  6. I've been reading your posts on our yahoo group, and just wanted to drop a hello!

    Throw my name in the hat, I have bookmarked your blog, so looking forward to your entries here.

    You can find me at :

    Enjoy and thanks! Erin

  7. What fun! St. Patrick with a billhook and hightops.
    Great image.

    I'm a former Seattle girl living in England, so shipping would be too expensive. Thanks anyway for the amusing giveaway.
