Contest winner

And the winner is.....
Esther from France!
The person who guessed what the pictures were of the Secret Santa gift exchange was Esther from France. Way to go Esther, how did you figure out it was a frame that I made for the exchange? Please check out Esther's beautiful blog. Her designs are just exquisitel, and very inventive using a combination of materials, as well as found objects and gems. I love each design she posts more than the last! She has a fabulous bracelet on there right now.

There were so many good guesses, you ladies really gave it some thought. I appreciate all your attempts, that was a blast!
Esther gets to choose from three pair of earrings. One pair is etched brass (I think I used French writing), one is beaded with chain and crystals, and the third is embossed brass.
Which ones will she choose? Which would you choose?

Don't forget, I'm going to have a drawing next month for my one year anniversary of my blog. I would love for you to enter and win! May each of you have a warm, wonderful and peaceful Christmas. We are all so blessed. Don't forget to give a donation to your local shelters this holiday season, they need us more than ever this year!!
Hugs and kisses to all.

You know Riki, i am pretty sure that Esther couldn't choose ! These earrings are so lovely, it will be a pure dilemna for her. But congrats dear Sweetie, i know you will be the happiest girl of the world with one of them.

Oh Esther is a lucky girl. I would have chosen the etched round ones. So pretty Riki! I don't think hubby will be getting the bracelet for Christmas because 2 packages have shown up wrapped under the tree & I recognize the wrap on one & that means the credit card took a MAJOR hit! :0 But, I will keep it on the list or simply recover from Christmas & Taxes due & buy it for myself. Hope you are having a wonderful time getting ready for Christmas. Shelly has offered for me to stay with her if I will come out for the class (not the one in February) you & Diana are teaching. ???? I will just be coming back from Adorn Me but............ maybe. How many are already signed up? Hugs! Charlene

I'm so happy to see Esther win - she is so generous herself. Your earrings are beautiful, Riki. It was hard, but I would have chosen the sweet pair on the right - is that Crystal or Czech glass?
