2400 Facebook fans-What can I say?

When I started this FaceBook venture I so wanted to be like a few of the fan pages I saw.  You know the ones that had 1500-3000 fans. I thought oh my how can I ever get there? I promised myself I would never forget what it felt like to be just starting out with 100 fans. And I haven't.  I like to help newly starting pages get more fans as best I can and promote other fans/friends stores through ArtFire Curator Collections and Etsy Treasuries.  This is a great joy for me. Giving back.

My greatest joy in all this? Without a doubt meeting some of the most wonderful, caring, sharing fans many of whom are now my dearest friends. Though we have never met face to face, I would jump to their aid in a heart beat. Those of you who have encouraged me personally as well as professionally I cherish. All my fans on my page are dear to my heart in ways they could never imagine.

How do I celebrate and say Thank You for all you've done for me? In a Giveaway of course!





My 2400 fans giveaway is for a Byzantine chain maille bracelet in multi colors of Anodized Aluminum. I wanted to giveaway something that celebrated every type of fan I cherish with every color I could find. The bracelet is not finished because you the winner will choose the clasp. Hand made hook clasp, toggle, or lobster claw.

To sign up for the giveaway just post your comments below... Please remember to leave a name so I can find you on Facebook- or check back here to see if you won and how to contact me..

The giveaway will run until Thursday morning..
Good luck and thank you my fantabulous fans!

  18. Most people who know me know I'm obsessed with bright, bold, multi-colored ANYthing and of course I'm a tie-dye junkie!!! This bracelet definitely falls into the EYE-POPPING, jaw-dropping, can't-believe-how-much-I-LOVE-it category!! All of your work is fantastic, but - this is quintessential ME! (I hate that darn word, but it sure does come in handy right now. lol) Congratulations on your 2400 fans, you deserve many, many more and I'm sure they'll be around sooner than later!

    Thank you so much for the opportunity to win this awesome piece of your work! <3

  19. Congratulations on reaching 2400 fans! I am sure that it won't be long before you are celebrating 3000... 4000... etc :) Your giveaway bracelet is stunning of course, but the thing that makes it super special is how you commented that you used every kind of colour to celebrate every kind of fan... I love that!

    So happy that you have such a following on facebook! I wish you all the best and more business than you can keep up with! I'd love to have such a beautiful bracelet; due my rheumatoid arthritis, I can no longer wear rings,but I can still wear bracelets. Though my body is bent and twisted, I still like to look like a woman.I look forward to seeing more of your art. Many blessings.
