Trisha! Congratulations Trisha and thank you to everyone who entered - please think of Christine for your holiday shopping everyone!

Christine's Beadworks is the totally amazing Michigan shop of maker Christine Wilson.

To Christine, design is one part inspiration, one part craftsmanship and several parts perseverance. She says, "If you enjoy what you are doing, you'll find the time, energy and skills to make it work."

Christine has a deep admiration for design, but it's the construction that really captures her imagination.

(her love and passion for process is so evident in her incredibly beautiful and detailed work!)


"The building of the piece from the selection of color to the layering of elements brings true joy into my designs. It would be impossible for me to imagine it without touching and doing it at the same time."

(don't we love that)

She utilizes unusual stones and artwork in her designs as well as recycled materials. Christine love's bottlecaps! There is something about these little miniature works of advertising artistry that have captured her imagination. She says, "So much is said in such a small space; they are a true testament to the power of simplicity in design. I'm proud to reclaim them from an inglorious end in a landfill and to enhance their artistry with my own."

We are so lucky to have one of Christine's amazing pieces for this week's giveaway!

Really?...I have to pick ONE fave? it's really difficult to do that with Christine's work! Anyhoo, I would say it is a tie between teh Rogue bracelet and the Book face bracelet. All of her items are fascinatingly beautiful!

Okay, I'll be the first! Oh man, does Christine do some gorgeous work and some oh-so-fun and funky stuff! I went to her Etsy shop, and my absolute favorite is Sailor's Song. Simply put, it's stunning and amazing.

I've been a follower on Facebook, which is where I learned about the contest. And as of this morning, I'm a follower of your blog. I also "like" Christine on FB, as of this morning. So yay... that gives me 4 entries?

Thanks for sharing Christine's work with us!
