GIVEAWAY! Mr. LuckyGirl is Unemployed

The global financial crunch has reached our lucky home; Mr. LuckyGirl was notified that he's being permanently laid off. And no, I'm not giving him away--he's a keeper! In true Lucky fashion, he's been taking advantage of his extra free time and is putting his metalworking and jewelry-making skills to good use.

For his first line of jewelry for Lucky Girl Trading, I told him what sort of earrings I'd like us to make, and he took my idea and ran with it. He's been testing out both fine silver and sterling, hammering earwires, soldering tiny tubes, and hand-coiling and soldering tiny springs.

These earrings and more of Mr. LuckyGirl's creations are now available in the precious metal jewelry section at Lucky Girl Trading on Etsy. We'll be adding more items often, so check back every few days to see what's new.

To help kickstart the new pieces, I'm offering these earrings to you at 25% off! The regular price is $20 per pair, but if you make a purchase by September 30 and put "blog kickoff" in the notes to seller during checkout I'll take $5 off.

I'm also going to give away the winner's choice of any pair of Mr. LuckyGirl's earrings!
