Enchanted Glass Necklace Giveaway

30 Apr, 2010 by in etsy, Heather Gardner Photography 17 comments

Today’s Etsy shop giveaway is a huge SQUEE for me! Shop owner Enchanted Glass has made two necklaces featuring one of my angel photographs! It is a dream come true! She has also done work for one of our current giveaway artists “Rustic Goth” who contributed bookmarks to our Super Book Giveaway. Enchanted Glass is one of my favorite shops…we will be working together on some more pieces with my photos so stay tuned!
She says “I’m a native of the northwest and for the most part have lived in small towns and the countryside. I’ve always loved being in the outdoors and growing things. To pay homage to this unsurpassable beauty that is mother nature I like to incorporate inspiration from her, if not actual bits of nature in my pieces.
Initially self-taught in 1979, I have since taken many a class and learned from my peers. I use the copper foil method, also known as Tiffany. I also do solder sculpting, sandblasting and fusing. My preference is toward the miniature and 3-dimensional, with the occasional window size flat piece. All my patterns are original, as the creation is half the fun.

Here you get to experience the physical outcome of my imagination’s many flights of fancy. As you will see I specialize in the miniature and 3-dimensional. I most enjoy the many lives that a glass piece takes on given the ever-changing way it is affected by light. I rarely use patterns, letting the piece evolve as it is being created and built. Each piece I make is unique, whether it is my own creation or a custom piece springing from your ideas. I pride myself on my attention to detail and quality production. With proper care my items can be enjoyed by many generations.

Waiting on Wednesday "Shadow Hills"

“Shadow Hills” by Anastasia Hopcus

to be published July 13th 2010 by Egmont USA

details Hardcover, 400 pages

isbn 1606840835

Synopsis from Goodreads: ” Since her sister’s mysterious death, Persephone “Phe” Archer has been plagued by a series of disturbing dreams. Determined to find out what happened to her sister, Phe enrolls at Devenish Prep in Shadow Hills, Massachusetts—the subject of her sister’s final diary entry.

After stepping on campus, Phe immediately realizes that there’s something different about this place—an unexplained epidemic that decimated the town in the 1700s, an ancient and creepy cemetery, and gorgeous boy Zach—and somehow she’s connected to it all.

But the more questions she asks and the deeper she digs, the more entangled Phe becomes in the haunting past of Shadow Hills. Finding what links her to this town…might cost her her life.
