September Component of the Month Giveaway: Clay Button Charm

It's my turn to host the Component of the Month!  Sadly, summer is coming to an end so I thought it would be best to offer up a component that would go nicely with the coming autumn weather. This month's component is a porcelain button charm in either my copper patina glaze or root beer glaze.  If they remind you of a vintage leather button that's because I made a mold of one from my vast vintage/antique button collection!

 Several AJE members will be participating in this challenge but I wanted to open it up to two randomly selected participants as well.  One of you will win a copper patina charm and one shall win a root beer charm.

How this challenge and blog hop will work (please read all the information below!):

  • I will be giving away 2 porcelain button charms via random selection to those that leave comments below.
  • Please include your EMAIL address in your comment so that I can contact the winners ASAP.
  • Only leave a comment if you can commit to creating a finished piece and blogging within the time given.
  • Winners of the two beads will be announced on September 1st.
  • The winners will not choose which color glaze they receive.  It will be a surprise!
  • This giveaway is open to US and Canadian participants due to a short turnaround time.
  • The blog reveal will be on September 30th.
  • If you already have one of these charms and would like to show your finished piece in the blog reveal, please email me (suburbangirlstudio2 @ yahoo.com) and I will add your blog to the link list.
Good luck!
