Giveaway: Kirstie Allsopp 'Craft' book AND a silver clay kit





I mentioned a giveaway recently. This is a very exciting one. I have joined forces with my main supplier of silver clay and the woman who taught me how to make things from it, the lovely Juliet of Spoilt Rotten Beads.

Silver clay is the medium I use to make my jewellery. It is a ceramic with particles of sterling silver and an organic binder that can be modelled, dried and fired on a gas hob to create beautiful fine silver pieces.

I'm thrilled to say that that Juliet has offered a silver clay starter kit for the giveaway alongside my extra copy of the new Kirstie Allsopp book!




There is only one exclamation mark there but truly, this is fabulous. Huge, huge thanks Juliet.

The kit contains 7g of silver clay, enough to make about 8-10 beautiful charms or two or three pendants, and all the tools you need to get started.

So, not only could you browse through fifty lovely tutorials (including my silver button tutorial) and beautifully-styled images and see pictures of Kirstie learning things but you could begin to make your own fine silver jewellery too as the winner will received both.





I plan to begin posting silver clay tutorials in the coming weeks, so that more people can discover how ace this special clay really is.

You may have seen Kirstie Allsopp using silver clay to make a beautiful key and leaf pendant on Wednesday evening's episode of Kirstie's Handmade Britain. If you missed it there is a video here and a tutorial here.







So, to the nitty gritty of the giveaway:


If you would like to win this giveaway prize (the book plus the kit, worth a total of around £59) then please leave a comment here telling me:
  • What you would most like to make using silver clay
  • Four of the items in the Artclay silver starter kit*
The giveaway will also be posted on Spoilt Rotten Bead's facebook page for Juliet's customers to enter.



If you would like an extra entry then feel free to grab my button and link back here or mention it on your blog:


This giveaway is open to everyone, not just UK readers.



Juliet and I will put all entries into the random number generator and draw the winner in a week's time.

Best of silvery luck! (Oh and please check the nitty gritty above for entry requirements, many thanks).

I watched the programme and would love to win. Finances really tight right now, but my daughter is 30 in the new year, and I want to make her a really special piece of jewellery. She has been a great support to both her partner and her sister through times of illness - and works really hard for charity. She deserves something special, to show how proud I am of her and how much I love her.

Tweezers
Stainless steel brush

Julie said...

I'm actually not sure what I'd make - I think I'd want to think about it for a little while to make sure I made the right decision (I'm usually quite impulsive but this has me in a real procrastination mood, sorry). I think I'm wary because I know how beautiful your work is and I'd set far too high standards for myself!
The kit contains, amongst other things:: tweezers, stainless steel brush, burnisher, and sliver polish and cloth.
Thanks for organising such a lovely giveaway. Juliex

Floss said...

This is probably the best giveaway I've ever seen! Since I bought my silver bird from you I've been telling everyone about silver clay and how it's used - this has prompted some pressing questions which I've been unable to answer, and having a go with it myself would put me in a better position to explain! So thanks for this super opportunity - I've put a link to you on my blogsidebar too.

I'd certainly love to have a go at the silver buttons you've done in your tutorial, but I'd also give some of the clay to Ben because he has a real talent for modelling tiny figures and I'd like to see what he came up with!

Four items from the kit (chosen because they have the grooviest sounding names) are:
Sponge sanding pads
Burnisher
Antiquing solution
Jump ring and charm holder

I haven't been here for ages but something made me look in today and wow - what a wonderful post/giveaway! I would love to be entered and if I won I would use the kit to make little charms to put in my Christmas pudding (do people still do that?!).
Some of the items in the kit: sponge sanding pads, tweezers, roller, instruction booklet (the last being the most important methinks!)
Fingers crossed and keep up your lovely work!

Great (and, I notice, very popular!) giveaway! Hmm, I think I'd like to make a copy of the flowers my dad made out of silver sheet as a pendant for my mum years ago. It'd be interesting to see how different it is to work with!

Some items in the the kit are: sponge sanding pads, roller, silver polish & cloth, and burnisher (that's one of my favurite words!)

What a lovely giveaway, I would have to make little items that meant something significant to me, so... A little thimble for my stitching, a little starfish to remind me of my favourite place - the seaside, a little peanut to remind me of my beautiful boy !!

I have just seen your lovely things at the Holt Christmas fair – I was particularly taken with a beautiful delicate necklace you had for sale, but having just bought a new necklace from Fiona last week at the Aldborough Creative fair, I couldn't justify buying myself another one. I arrived home to discover I had sold one of my 'Running Hares' mugs on Folksy, so a good day all round so far. Claire at QuirkyDreaming

Oh, and to be in with a chance of winning the giveaway:

The set contains 7g silver clay, a burnisher, some tweezers and antiquing solution, amongst other things.

I'm desperate to have a go with silver clay – I trained as a potter originally, so I feel it will be much more intuitive for me than metal ever was. I'd love to make a charm to be included on the silver bracelet I have commissioned for my daughter's 21st birthday.

I'm excited to enter the give-away... especially since you're including non-UK folks.

Four items from the kit:
burnisher
antiquing solution
silver polish & cloth
tweezers!

I'd really like to make a wee starfish... a silvery, fishery, starry guy to put on a chain.
