Giveaway > New Year, New Series



"Welcome back" is the first piece from the Girls Are Weird [XL/XS] series.
In this series, each picture is a print from original drawings of mine, printed in photographic paper and protected with a glass looking resin. The frame is a can bottom hand cut, hand pierced and the silk ribbon around it ends up in a knot holding a twisted sterling silver link. You can wear it around your neck or just hang it on the wall.
A XL pendant or a XS frame, either way, it's your choice :)

And to welcome this new year and new series, I'm giving the first piece to one of you.
Just leave a comment on this post and you are in.
Sunday the 17th January, when I'm exactly 5 months from being an year older, I'll get in touch with the lucky winner.
Meanwhile I'll start listing the rest of the series on my Etsy shop.
Feel very welcome to drop by.

Yeap Kathleen, this is one of the things keeping me offline. But the post graduation works are also consuming my strenght and time and my shops are almost empty, gotta make some more pieces. And I felt so tired in the holiday that I had to stop for a while. But I can manage it all (I hope, hehe).
Don't mind my comment, it's not an entry on the contest ;)
And thank you girls for the comments, they keep me going :D
Good luck!

I had decided to make no comments in here until the final results, but what the heck, this is my blog anyway.
Nauli, it was a really funny coincidence. I was planning these pieces with the drawings for quite some time, now here they are :)
Candybabe, já estou a seleccionar manias, vai levar uns dias, hehe, mas desafio aceite!
