'Candy Cupcake' Bracelet Giveaway

'CandyCupcake' Bracelet
Do you remember those edible elasticated bracelets that were made of pastel-coloured sweets?  Well, this bracelet reminds me of one of those but it's probably best not to eat this one as doing so could cause some dental damage.

Anyway, I'm giving this 'Candy Cupcake' bracelet away in my prize draw. It's made with my own lampwork glass beads - pale candy pink and white spacers and a matching cupcake bead.  The bracelet measures approximately seven and a half inches long (that's about 190mm) and all the silver you see is sterling.

If you'd like to be in with a chance of winning this bracelet all you need to do is enter my prize draw. The rules of the giveaway are are as follows :

♦ The draw is open to anyone anywhere in the world.

♦ It's one entry per person.

♦ To enter the draw you need to leave a comment on this blog post.  No email entries this time, I'm afraid, but please bear in mind that you do not need a Blogger account to comment on this here blog.

♦ When you comment please leave a name of some kind, be it your actual one, a nickname or your blog user name - just something rather than an anonymous comment. If you have a popular name please leave some kind of initials. Last time I had lots of Sues and Sarahs enter and that got a bit confusing! Something like 'Laura S' would be great.

♦ Entries need to be in by 7.00pm (UK time) on Friday 25th February when I will pick the winner using a random number generator.

♦ I'd really appreciate it if you could mention and link to this prize draw on Twitter, Facebook or your blog.  You don't have to and you don't get an extra entry BUT you will receive a virtual handshake or hug from me (or both if you like) if you're kind enough to do so.  (Tell you what, I'll even throw in a cyber-kiss-on-the-cheek if you want one!)

I hope that all makes sense.

'CandyCupcake' Bracelet
Oooh look - it's all old school here!
