Mrs Monkei Jewelry Giveaway

I’d like to introduce you to Erin, the lady behind Mrs Monkei Jewelry .

I “met” Erin through the MadeIt forum  and we found we could help each other out- she wanted to host a giveaway, and I wanted to start using this blog to promote fellow crafters…

Erin comes from a craft-orientated family. Her mum made a living doing markets with her crafts when she was young and is still a source of inspiration.
Under the name of "Mrs Monkei" Erin makes jewellery - bracelets, earrings, necklaces, hair adornments- as well as bookmarks. She uses glass and crystal beads and semi-precious gemstones that she has collected over a number of years.

“I love creating things for people to enjoy,” Erin told me when I asked her what got her started. “I love it when people see something I have made previously and request it for themselves in their own colour choices. It feels far more individual than making stock for a shop.”
Asked to tell me a bit about her favourite piece she said, “I'm excited about the pieces I made recently for my sister-in-law's wedding.” Unfortunately Erin and her husband can't make it to England for the big day itself, but she has made hair combs for the bridesmaids as well as 100 bookmarks to be included in wedding favours for guests! “I'm very happy to be able to contribute from all the way over here in Melbourne,” she says.
At the moment Erin’s work can be seen online in her MadeIt shop and on Facebook, but she also looks forward to selling at markets in the not-too-distant future.
The Giveaway!

 Erin is offering not one, but two opportunities to win something she will make especially in the winner’s choice of colours!
The first prize on offer is a bracelet similar to the one pictured below, in your choice of two or three colours.
Second prize is a flowery metal bookmark as in the photo!
All entries will be placed into a hat and drawn at 7pm on Saturday 9th July (Australian EST)
