laurie gale designs giveaway!

hello friends!

yes, i am packing december full of fun giveaways – a little gift for you all!

today i’d like to introduce you to laurie, of laurie gale designs:

My name is Laurie Eller of Laurie Gale Designs and I have been making lampwork glass jewelry for nine years. It’s a true addiction (of the best kind!). In my studio I make the beads by melting rods of glass onto steel mandrels and then putting them into a digitally controlled kiln. Decorations can be made with the glass, making the most beautiful designs imaginable. You can learn more about what I do by going HERE. I simply adore what I do and am blessed to have others love it too. Be sure to check out my website and maybe you’ll find something you’d like. Enjoy!

All Pleated Poppy Friends will receive 20% off any purchase through Tuesday, December 31st. Please use code, POPPY20 upon check-out.

Thank you for stopping by!

i am amazed by laurie’s work – i can’t believe you can make such detailed pieces out of glass by hand!  laurie does a great job of pairing colors together and her creations are beautiful!

laurie has generously offered a $40 gift certificate to her shop!  as always, go check out her shop and let me know what you’d like to have added to your jewelry stash!
