A Giveaway! Sponsored by Obstinate Pursuit {NOW CLOSED}

(This post is part of my Frosty Festivities 2013 Blog Event)

This giveaway {GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED} is sponsored by the fabulous Clair at Obstinate Pursuit, an Etsy shop filled with beautiful beaded jewellery and tutorials!

Obstinate Pursuit

I’ve known Clair for a while via blogging, she’s so sweet and her crafts are gorgeous! The Etsy shop is relatively new for her and as soon as she opened it I bought a couple of pairs of earrings for myself. they were just as pretty as I expected!

Here’s some of my favourite wintry items in the shop right now:

1. Silver & White, Beaded Swarovski Rivoli Star Necklace ‘Winter Sparkle’ – This is so delicate and lovely – perfect for winter parties! I just know that wearing it would make me feel super special, and that everyone would ask me where I bought it:

Winter Sparkle Star Necklace

2. Snow White & Silver “Snow Drop” Crystal Beaded Earrings –  These would be perfect for parties or everyday wear. I love to wear dangly earrings all the time (I own this pair of Clair’s earrings and I’ve worn them lots already!). These ones below really make me think of falling snow, so they set the scene for the season very well:

3. Star Flower Bracelet & Earrings Bead Weaving Tutorial – I don’t do a lot of beading, and I’ve never tried anything like this, but Clair is seriously tempting me to give it a go with this tutorial. See the white bracelet on the right? I have earrings from Clair in the same style (she can do all kids of custom orders), and I’m thinking perhaps I should order the tutorial and try to make the bracelet to match:

Here’s the star flower earrings I own, they are so stunning:

  • there are several items of jewelry that I love the style of but I am not a very girly girl so would need to change some of the colours….. but I guess that is entirely possible when something is so fabulously custom/handmade….. Clair is very talented!!

    What a gorgeous shop. Fave’d and ill be ordering something sweet for my bestie! I adore all the wintery looking items. I have a necklace with snowflakes that I adore but really, a new winter necklace would be such a treat! I think the Celestial necklace would have to be top of the Christmas list – what a wonderful sponsor!

    I love to wear chunky bracelets and necklaces that seem “too hot” to wear in the summer.

    November 10, 2013 at 4:42 am
  • These are all so lovely. My favorite is the buoy earrings. So pretty. I need my daughter to look and see if she needs to add anything for Santa to bring her. *wink*

    Claire has made some lovely things!! I love her charm necklaces!!

    November 10, 2013 at 6:53 am
  • I love your snowflake earrings … gorgeous with the correct number of points (snowflakes with 8 or 7 or 5 points don’t do it for me) but upon looking in Clair’s shop I’ve now fallen in love with the seafoam earrings – beautiful!

    so many gorgeous trinkets – I feel my inner magpie coming out! I especially liked the cahrm necklaces – Love and Paris, really cute 🙂

    Anything that was snowflake inspired is a favorite with me. Thanks for the chance.

    November 10, 2013 at 1:23 pm
  • My favourite is the winter sparkle necklace that you’ve shown……but it’s not in the shop anymore….so someone else obviously loved it as well!!! I also love the heart and teal flower necklace.

    November 10, 2013 at 6:42 pm
  • I also love the Silver & White, Beaded Swarovski Rivoli Star Necklace ‘Winter Sparkle’, it is absolutely breath taking – you’ll have to make a few more to sell Clair. The star flower tutorials look fab, they remind me of snowflakes so perfect for this time of year.

    November 10, 2013 at 7:32 pm
  • The snowflake necklace is beautiful. I love the way it sparkles. I love the “Love” Necklace in her Etsy shop too.
