One World One Heart

Welcome to my blog! I am happy to be participating in my 4th One World One Heart blog event. You can read about this event and discover the other participants by clicking on the OWOH logo to the right.
Since my children have grown, so has my creativity. I love making cards, ATCs, scrapbooks and quilts. I have discovered mixed media and have fun experimenting, but my first love is still playing with paper. I love making backgrounds, and have a large stash on hand to use for projects when needed.
I made this soldered ceramic tile necklace, and it is my give away for the 2011 One World One Heart event:
close up of front of the tile:
close up of the back of the tile:
To win this necklace you must leave a comment on this post along with a link to your blog or your email address, so I can contact you if you are the winner. The winner will be chosen by a random drawing.
I will accept comments through Feb. 17th 2011 and will announce the winner on my blog the next day, Feb. 18th. If the winner does not respond to my email within 3 days, I will choose another winner.
I hope you have some time to look around my blog and I look forward to meeting you on your blog!
Note of 2/4/11: here's a link to an earlier post of how I made this necklace.
Note of 2/2311: the necklace has been sent to Needlewings, congratulations.

jinxxxygirl said...

I have a bunch of 1 inch square ceramic tiles and recently decoupaged a drawing of mine to the front of one and added a bail but was having a terrible time figuring out how to finsh off the sides and back. Never thought of soldering. Thanks so much for the idea! I'll have to give it a try though i've never done it before. Yours is beautiful . Please count me in your giveaway. If you visit my blog and scroll down some you can see my version of the tile.
