Giveaway 9 (winner drawn 13 April at 11am GMT) and Giveaway 8 winner

Jewellery again this week...

... a freshwater grey pearl necklace, with a beautifully detailed clasp. This was a gift, and I've only ever worn it once. It's about 18" long, and I think the clasp is pewter, but it may well oxidized silver, I don't know...

The top of the clasp is a beautiful flower - I think it looks like a camellia :)

And underneath...

.. is an S clasp, which is just too complicated to do one-handed. Hence I'm giving this beautiful piece away. It deserves to be worn, not closed up in my jewellery box.

I adore the grey pearls, which shimmer different colours as the light catches them, but they are very hard to photograph.

So, if you would like this to appear on your neck, leave a comment, and I'll draw the winner next Sunday 13 April at 11am (BST).

Well done, Gill

  1. How Adorable, reminds me of my wonderful youthful days. I loved to wear pearls. Your pearl piece is beautiful thanks for offering it for a giveaway. How Generous and kind.

  2. What a lovely give away and I know whoever wins will enjoy wearing it. Maybe I'll just be that happy recipient. Time will tell. I have just gotten into using fresh water pearls for my embroidery pieces and love them.

    Have a good week ~ FlowerLady

  3. What a beautiful piece of jewellery...you are being very generous! Lucky Gill for winning the book.

  4. Oh I like pearls and yes, they are hard to photograph. Many other things as well - it is always a godsend to represent something with the camera, I mean, it creates its own picture often -
    (I did not want to win the book because it is too difficult for me to read)
    Have a blessed sunday :-)

  5. Beautiful Claire!

    Oh, beautiful necklace, and I, too, love grey pearls! So lovely of you to offer it as a giveaway.

  7. Pearls of any color are my favorite; would rather have pearls than diamonds!

  8. Grey pearls, mmm. They will flatter any skin tone. You are so kind to offer all these giveaways prior to your Birthday.

  9. what a lovely necklace, I hope I am lucky.

  10. That is such a beautiful necklace, I'd love a chance to win it, since you don't mind sending to the other end of the world :)

  11. That is a beautiful necklace. I would love to wear it.
