Portuguese Tile Pendant Give Away!

Last day to enter! The giveaway ends tonight at 11:59 PDT! I just made a batch of pendants with some new patterns I hope to list this week. Thanks for all your support - I'm overwhelmed by the response and all the kind words! THANKS!

UPDATE! I've begun listing tiles on my Etsy shop! I'll list throughout the day. Check here for newest additions.

I'm so excited I'm leading with a photo!
These are images of the long awaited Portuguese tile pendants! These are large, 1 1/2 inch square pendants with quality glossy photos embedded in crystal clear resin. I took each photo, cut each photo and embedded it in resin. Metal tags are attached firmly to the back to hang these beauties to a cord or chain. That's the fun part! Below is a mere sampling of the nearly infinite variety of coordinating cords I can make for each pendant. The colors pop and look simply lovely!

I will be offering Kumihimo braided cords, as well as traditionally braided cords. If you prefer a simpler look, I will include a chain instead. Don't like the cord I've shown the pendant with? No problem! Contact me and I'll make one just for you! Prices to be determined before I list these on Thursday.

These are conversation starters because they are so different and fun. The houses in Ovar are so beautiful and colorful, robed in these tiles. These are a little piece of Portugal!

GIVEAWAY!!
I'm running a giveaway until next Tuesday, the 31st. One lucky winner will win their choice of one of the pendants from the above collage and their choice of cord, either one of the ones pictured or a style and color of their choice. Wow! The winner will be chosen using Random.org.

For one chance to win:
Go check out my Etsy shop or my ArtFire studio and then come back here and leave a comment with the title of your favorite piece(s).
For a second chance to win:
Follow my blog and leave a comment that says "follow."

That's it! Good luck everyone! And be sure to check out my Etsy shop on Thursday for the Grand Launch!

Have a great day!

  3. I like your Shooting Stars Earrings especially- but for me, having visited Portugal and returned with one tiny little broken piece of blue & white glazed tile found a little ways from the beach near our hotel, outside of Lisbon... nothing would beat the tiles!! They're beautiful & original.
