1000th Blog Visitor Giveaway - updated with winner

Ok so technically I must have passed the 1000th visitor mark as I put the counter on here ages after I started this Blog but let's not get bogged down with technicalities. As I write this, the count is 939 visitors from 55 countries. How cool is that?
To be in with a chance to win this Chakra necklace just add a comment to this post. I suspect we will hit the 1000 mark before the end of January but I have decided to wait until then to draw the winner so all comments received up to the end of January will be included - But you only go in the hat once. The necklace is made with Quartz Crystal beads with the focal comprised of Swarovski bicones in the colours of the chakras. The clasp is Sterling Silver and the whole thing is of course hand crafted with love.


UPDATE
I used a random number generator and the lucky poster is Number 5...
which is GRUMPY - Matt if you prefer some man beads let me know
Congratulations to Matt and thanks to everyone who participated

  4. Congratualtions! That's a real milestone. Grogeous necklace and I love what you say about 'handcrafted with love', I think that is what makes handcrafted items so special. The creators, like you genuinely care about what they are making and you can't buy that anywhere else. Good luck with the next 1000 visits... wherever they come from.

  20. Wow, I'm so ungood at this. Chris you have wonderful talents in so many things. My angel earrings you made always give me strength when I need it and your runes are the envy of many - No! I will not share them with anyone! So quit askin! And don't touch em!

    And as always Chris you are an inspiration to me and someone I truly respect. (Does the mushy stuff give me an extra shot at the necklace?) Love ya Chris xx

  22. Beautiful piece! Btw, it's nice to see another Reiki practitioner into jewelry making. I have lvl 2 attunement (still looking for that teacher to get me to lvl 3 and master, I guess when I'm ready for it, the teacher will come).

  23. Hi Marika thanks for your comments - I know quite a few Reiki people who also make jewellery - something to do with the energy of it all I think . I tried to see your website but it appears to be down - I would love to see your work. I actually know a Reiki Master Teacher in Cyprus get in touch if you want her details

  27. This necklace was on my mind last night and I ended up dreaming about it. Whoever wins it will be absolutely delighted as it is so lovely. Also, because it has the colours of the chakras, it will be special on the spiritual path. Made with love and given with love, couldn't be better. Eh up kiddo!!!
    Love Carol xx
