giveaway – 3 sterling silver rings

April 30, 2013 by Lauren

Erin Griffin Silversmith.

Wear all 3 at once or just 1. (you could even give them to 3 friends if you’re feeling nice!) They are each approximately 7-7.5 in ring size. 

And man. Do I want to keep these for myself. They are awesome and the little spinning block is so fun to play with!

Erin is seriously the nicest person ever. Josiah and I met her and her friend of the boy kind, Brian at SXSW. We ate popcorn and hated ourselves for doing the dusty event and laughed a lot.

Brian also is an artist and makes the cooooolest wood items ever. Seriously. We have 2 of his vases in our house, as seen below:

Ok sorry, back to business, those sweet vases aren’t included in the giveaway.
But THESE are:

giveaway for 3 spinning block rings - The Burlap Bag

If you’d like these sweet rings…. here’s some options!

How you can win these:

We have 5 different ways you can enter this giveaway for 3 sterling silver rings. Please leave a SEPARATE comment for each entry… so if you do all 5, you should leave us 5 comments here! If you leave them all in one comment we will NOT count them as multiple… it gets too crazy with +100 comments!

-Option 1: In the upper right hand column, sign up for our newsletter OR to get each post emailed to you. Then leave a comment telling us you signed up. (already signed up? tell us!)

-Option 2: “Like” The Burlap Bag on facebook! Then tell us here. (already “liked” us? Leave a comment saying so.)

-Option 3: Post a pin to pinterest about the giveaway. Or a post on facebook. Or on twitter. Or some other social media! Then tell us here.

-Option 4:  Take a look-sy at Erin Griffin Silversmith’s website. Tell us what item of hers you just LOVE! (i love the whole weightless collection!)

-Option 5: “Like” BDJ Craft Works on facebook! Erin doesn’t have a business facebook page… so Brian’s as close as we can get. :)



The giveaway officially has ended! Congrats to Meagan for winning – check your email!
