Sew Mama Sew Give Away day!

WINNER ANNOUNCED AT THE END OF THIS POST!

Hi!
I want to welcome anyone who is visiting my blog from Sew Mama Sew's Give Away Day.
Let me introduce myself briefly. I am a busy mum and wife; I work part-time as admin and project officer and spend the rest of my time at home with my 2.5 year old boy and my husband. In the mean time, I am trying to develop the small jewellery business which I started a couple of months ago. I  love handmade, I love making things whenever I have a chance after work and as long as my son lets me :) If you are new to my blog, I hope you take a minute to have a look around. I hope you enjoy what you see.
As part of Sew Mama Sew's Give Away Day, I will be giving away a pair beautifully hand-made earrings from my small jewellery business.
These earrings were hand-made in Turkey with a traditional Turkish lacing technique called "igne oyasi/ needle (oya) lace".
Those tiny triangles that form the bigger triangles are individual knots tied next to each other. These knots, then, create lines; and line by line you create the pattern. This lacing technique is used to make table covers, embellish head scarves, blouses and many more clothing and home decor items. The things you can do/make with this technique is almost limitless!
These earrings measure 2.5 inches between the widest points.

Entires are accepted today until December 12 at 5pm PST/ December 13 at 12pm AEST if you are from Australia and New Zealand. International entrees are welcome too.

  20. I would love a thimble. I've placed it on my husband's "to give" list, but you know how they are. Bigger is better. I'll probably end up with a metal bucket from him :) I had a thimble I used since 6th grade (I'm in my 40's now). but it cracked and like cinderella, haven't found the perfect fit :) The earrings are gorgeous!!!
