September’s giveaway includes two pairs of earrings from a fabulous handmade jewelry maker from North Dakota! There are four ways to enter this giveaway until the evening of September 30th, 2013. First, learn about the handmade jewelry.
Kara is a friend of mine, who is an engineer turned metalsmith and stay-at-home mom. Kara and I became friends when I worked with Pride of Dakota and have kept in touch. She doesn’t have a store front but I buy from her at local shows and Pride of Dakota showcases. And often I email her when I need a gift for a friend or family member.
Kara has 80 some different metal tools in her shop and all of her jewelry starts from sheets of metal. She is an amazing artist! Last fall, I bought several pairs of earrings for family members. Then I needed some myself. We had a few of her items at our county fair silent auction. I just love Kara and her company, KLG Designs! She offers custom orders and personalized pieces along with a few of my favorite pairs of earrings and necklaces.
Take a peek!
I told Kara about my monthly North Dakota giveaway and she graciously sent me two pairs of earrings at a reduced price. The earrings for this giveaway are normally $35-45 per pair. They are my favorite triple fine silver hoops and a pair of copper hoops wrapped with sterling silver.
You have the opportunity to win them for FREE. I will announce the two winners on the evening of Monday, September 30th and send you a pair of earrings if you are a winner.
