Great Gaboon Ebony Bangle Giveaway

Well, here we are, and as I have promised, when my blog following reached 50, I would give away one of my gorgeous exotic wood cuffs. I thought about which wood to use, and a favorite Bible verse came to mind, when a man asks for your cloak, give him your coat also. My interpretation of this is if you are going to give something away, give the best, not the worst you've got. So, since I love working ebony wood, this is my first choice. It is glamorous, showy, sensual, earthy, ethnic, and sexy all wrapped up into one, but best of all, it polishes like glass! Absolutely none other like it, in my mind. And here is the bangle you will receive if you are the lucky winner:

These are the requirements that will count towards how many times you are entered into the drawing to win:

Please post all in the comments below, the more you can help to promote me, the more chances for you to win. Each separate action counts as one more time your name will go into the pot.

2.  You must follow or like my Jewelry by Janelle Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/pages/Jewelrybyjanelle50-at-Etsycom/101935135915?__a=1

5.  Writing a blog post about me and my exotic wood jewelry isn't a must, but gets 3x your name in the pot. If you do this, be sure to post your blog link below.

  21. I'm a fan of big unique pendant necklaces that make a statement. I don't normally buy understated. ;) I really like your Autumn Leaves Floral Pendant Necklace:

    and your Purpleheart Heart Shaped Pendant Necklace:
