And The Winner is...

I've been waiting for this moment all week! It is time to tell you all who the winner of my summer contest is! Hopefully one of you will be slightly happier than I am to hear the winner but I am pleased none the less to announce that the winner is...

Krista Skov-Nielsen!

Krista writes the blog, A Ferry Crossing Away & wrote this totally cute post about the contest!

Her favorite piece was Crocus Burst

Krista has won a necklace & earring set in her choice of colour or colour combination in my brand new fall style of necklace! I'm so happy to bring you all a preview of the new style today.

The new simple pieces hang on simple wire, getting their beauty from magnificent, unique collections of beads, textures & colours.  An extra bonus? The price point of these new pieces is 30$ to $40!

I think one of my favorite things about this style is the way they hang & can be layered with other pieces.

The necklace length can be altered as per customer preference & have been created in over a dozen colours already! Make sure to check the fanpage & my website throughout the week to see them unveiled!

Again thank you Krista & everyone for entering! Remember - just because you didn't win does not mean you can't get a wonderful Darling Dilemma creation - ALL items are currently on sale til the end of the month!!!

End of Summer Smash!

Summer has been intense with selling at the outdoor artisan market, Loyalist Plaza, battling an awful lot of rain & of course, trying to squeeze every last moment of summer out of this too short season.

My guilt of a loooong absence is only a good thing for you though, my readers.

I normally love to offer a great discount but this was a particularly long absence so I thought a big contest & even bigger sale were a WAY better idea.
Don't you agree?

So here is the deal - You must 'like' the Darling Dilemma fanpage on facebook.  Leave a comment here letting me know you are a fan AND which is your favorite piece currently in my Etsy shop.

For extra entries in this contest you can;
  • tweet about the contest,(please use my twitter name @DarlingDilemma so I can find your entry!)
  • blog about the contest
Please leave separate comments here for each of these, to qualify for an extra ballot! Contest closes August 21st, 2011 & is open to all North American residents.

I suppose you would like to know why you should bother doing all of this? What is in it for you??

The winner will receive a necklace & earring set in their choice of colour or colour combination!  This piece will be custom made & one of a kind (as are all of my pieces).

So check out my Darling Dilemma etsy shop for all the deals that will be appearing this week & join the facebook fanpage! I'm excited to create something unique for one of you & hear what everyone's favorite necklaces are...
