giveaway & my new mannequin
Hello, my name is ...?
I recently decided it would be a good idea to have someone to model my jewellery for me as taking a photo of myself wearing the necklaces has proved to be impossible! Unfortunately Mr P just isn't the right sort of model for the job (too much hair ;-)) so I came up with the idea of a mannequin and managed to get one from eBay.
Here she is just after she came to stay modelling my heart pebble (now sold).
I was just a bit too excited when she was delivered and couldn't wait to get her out of the box. I think this might be something to do with a long buried desire deep in my psyche from when I was a kid and all I wanted for my birthday was a Girl's World to put makeup on and style her hair like my friend had! Silly I know!
Well the poor love has been through an ordeal already (no I haven't been putting makeup on her!). I had to glue velcro to her head to keep her wig on and Mr P jumped out of his skin when he opened the bedroom door to find her looking at him :-D. But she's settling in now and has been trying lots of pebbles on.
All she needs is a name. Which is where I hope my dear readers will come in and help me. I thought to make it more fun I would do a giveaway.
All you have to do for the chance to win the ocean key pebble necklace shown in in the photos is to leave me a comment saying what you think her name should be. This lovely lightweight pebble was found by me whilst walking on the beach with my pup. I planned out a design in my sketchbook and then engraved it onto the pebble, strung it with grey cotton cord and finished with a pebble toggle. The necklace measures 20" (52cm).
I will pick a winner at random on Monday March 1st at midday. Ooh exciting!! I do hope you'll participate. The more the merrier!
