Feb 23rd: Giveaway by Sarah Mulligan

In 1998, Sarah Mulligan took a wrong turn down a hallway in the School of Craft and Design building at Sheridan College. That day she discovered the glass studio, entered the program, and presto chango: we have her unbelievably beautiful collection of glass jewellery in both of our shops.

Congrats Sarah, on such a happy mistake! (-:

Today, on Day 23 of our epic 28 Days of Giveaways, we are giving away this glass pendant by Sarah Mulligan.

Enter below. Contest closes at midnight.

Mornin’!

We couldn’t be more excited about today’s double giveaway since we’re giving away pieces by two of Ottawa’s loveliest and most talented local designers! What could top that?

Allyssa Spaxman, of Strut Jewelry, in her own words: I hand-make pieces for the modern gypsy, gathering inspiration and materials from my world travels and local sources. Strut Jewelry offers eclectic, effortlessly gorgeous jewelry for the free-spirited wanderer. Love. (our words).

 

Krista Leben, of Urbanite Jewelry, has a similar global philosophy.  We love how each of her pieces is inspired by a different place in the world. Given no limits on time or money, where would YOU go?

Today, on Day 20 of our 28 Days of Giveaways, we’re giving away both of these great pieces – to two different winners.  Enter below. Contest closes at midnight. (-:
