January 2011 Give Away Contest

Rosary Bracelet
donated by

Welcome to our first Give Away contest in 2011. The prize for this month's give away contest was donated by Jeanine of Heartfelt Rosaries. I have long been an admirer of Jeanine's creative and well crafted rosaries and jewelry. This bracelet is a prime example of Jeanine's artistry and craftmanship. However, Jeanine can describe it better than I can. In her own words:

This is a 1-decade Rosary bracelet made with a large Swarovski
baguette for the Pater and 6mm Rose Quartz Aves. It is ornamented with seed
beads and more Swarovski and has a solid Sterling Silver Crucifix. It measures 7 1/2 inches and will fit most wrists. For those with larger wrists, I'll make a bigger, more ornate clasp so it fits them, too--they should contact me through my etsy store, Heartfelt Rosaries
(HeartFeltRosaries.com). Lists at $28. Comes in a beautiful golden, beaded organza gift bag, ready for presentation.

To be eligible to win this beautiful bracelet, please see the guidelines below.

But hurry! The constest ends on Sunday, January 30, 2011.

Open to US residents only


Okay…here’s the scoop! The Etsy Rosary Guild is a group of artisans who make beautiful, hand crafted rosaries and jewelry. We are dedicated to using our art as a witness to our faith as well as using it to help support ourselves and our families. Naturally, we want to let the world in on what we are doing, so we have decided to have a monthly give away as a means of advertising our creations. We started doing this in June and so far, our give aways have been enormously successful. We are hoping that you would like to get in on the action.

You can enter as many times as you wish…no purchase necessary. However, if you find that you would like to buy something, we won’t stop you!

Here are the rules. We’ve tried to make it as simple as possible.

To enter, first visit Jeanine's shop and take a look at all the beautiful items she has made. Find your favorite item and come back and tell us about it in a comment on the blog. That’s it! You’re done…if you want to be.

Please leave your email address on each comment that you make in the form of JaneDoe (at) anywhere.com. That way we will be able to contact you if you are the lucky winner.

If you would like to make more entries after visiting Jeanine's shop, here’s how you can do it.

  • Enter one (or more) of the member’s shops listed in the side bar on the right, find something you like and come back here and tell us about it in a comment on the blog. Remember that each comment counts as an entry, so make separate comments for each shop that you visit. That way you can rack up more entries.
  • Sign up to follow our blog. You probably want to do this anyway so that you can learn about all that we are doing and keep an eye out for our next give away. If you already follow our blog, (thank you) and just leave your user ID in a comment
  • Become a Facebook Fan of The Etsy Rosary Guild Team. Leave a comment back here with your Facebook name. Existing fans just leave your Facebook ID here in a separate comment.
  • Blog about our give away on your blog…or anyone else’s blog… and come back here and put a link to the post in a comment.
  • Become one of Jeanine's FaceBook fans, come back here and tell us about it
  • Become a follower of Jeanine's Blog: HeartfeltRosaries. Come back here and tell us about it.
  • Refer our Give Away Contest and our Blog to a friend. Ask them to leave a comment on the contest saying that “(your user ID) referred them. This will give them an entry and will give you yet another entry. Two for the price of one ain’t bad!

Just a reminder: Remember to leave your email address in the form of JaneDoe (at) anywhere.com. That way we can contact you if you are the lucky winner.

Also remember…Comments = Entries! Yaaaay! So leave as many comments as you like. Just click on the word “Comments” at the bottom center of the post and you’re ready to go. Remember, this months contest will end on Sunday, January 30, 2011.

Winning comment/entrant will be chosen by Random.org.

Oh yes, this goes without saying, but I’ll say it anyway. Guild members are not eligible to win. While this bums most of us out completely, it means y’all get more chances to win.

Thanks so much for taking the time to give us a look-see and thank you for entering.

The Sterling Silver Pearl Ruby Custom Wire Wrap Handmade Rosary. Is that not the most beautiful thing you have ever seen! These remind me of my Grandmother's rosary that I have. You can tell they are not factory made. But that they are made with love and care.

I have been a fan of Jeanine and Heartfelt Rosaries for many years. I have bought several presents for people I love from her. I always say that you always give what you whould like yourself. When I found her a number of years ago I thought that she was one of the best however, she keeps getting better. Lastly she is known in our house as The rosary lady. Lastly if you ever converse with her regarding an item that you wish you will be treated to superior customer service and I think a loving heart!!

Heather said...

I am a follower of Heartfelt rosaries blog. She not only makes lovely rosaries, she writes beautifully!!

Heather said...

I love the Jeanine every year makes some 1st communion rosaries that are a fair price!!! But, my favorite rosary she has made so far, (if you could choose, that is, like asking what kind of music you like best!!) it would have to be her Pearls and sterling rosary. If you go to her blog and page back you can still see it. Every once and a while she comes out with a rosary that takes your breath away. Make me wish I was born with more pocket money!!

Heather said...

I follow her on facebook it is nice to keep up with her new items. She also will alert you when she has a sale which is also very nice.
