Wednesday Wellspring: A Different View

Congratulations to #34 Teary Eyed Stars for winning the Kelley's Beading giveaway! And congratulations to Kira Arts for winning the Japan-inspired team challenge!

And bubbling up from the well this week, is A Different View! One lucky winner will receive this beautiful one-of-a-kind piece made with layered stained and clear glass, preserving natural pressed fleabane flowers. All pendants in this lovely shop are made in this manner, so no two are ever alike - as Mother Nature determines what the artist has available each season! The medallion is finished on a soft black cord, adjustable for custom length.

Chrys, the artist behind these lovely creations, can also be found around Rochester this spring at a few events:
  • Library Services Craft Show, Friday, April 29th, 8 am-5 pm at the Rochester Holiday Inn Airport
  • b'Zart: an event Chrys is organizing to benefit Golisano Children's Hospital. It will be at the Firehouse Saloon, 814 South Clinton, May 28th from 5-10 p.m. She'll be joined there by fellow RNESTers Sunshyne Silverwear and Softshell Crafts.
  • reHatched: Female Artist Showcase at the Tango Cafe, 389 Gregory St., Saturday, June 6, 7pm - 10pm.

And now for the rules (This giveaway is open to the US and Canada only.):
MANDATORY ENTRY #1: Go to A Different View, heart the shop, and then leave a comment here telling me your favorite item.
MANDATORY ENTRY #2: Become a follower of this blog and leave a comment letting me know- or if you are already, leave a comment saying you're a loyal follower.

BONUS ENTRIES (leave a separate comment for each):
1. "Like" RNEST on Facebook.
2. "Like" A Different View on Facebook.
2. Tweet and blog about this giveaway and leave a comment here with the link.

The winner will be chosen using the random number generator on Tuesday, May 3rd and will be announced in the next Wednesday Wellspring.

  61. Wow! I just love Chrys's Etsy Shop - and just about everything in it (as indicated by the number of "items" (creations!) that have been "hearted" by Salleefur (me!)

    Among my most favorites are the Woodlands, Blue Skies and Tempest Necklaces, the Birds of a Feather Earrings (and the Necklace that kind of matches it) the Cheshire Hand Flowers and the Blue Angel Figurine (stained glass).
