I Won the Wubbers University’s “Spring Break Giveaway”
Back in March on a whim, I entered a giveaway through Wubbers University, they were doing a giveaway for Spring. For those who are not familiar with who or what Wubbers is I will explain. Wubbers is a jewelry tool manufacturer known for their mandrel shaped pliers. They make forming wire into various shapes easy. I own a few of the round plies and use them regularly to shape wire and thin metals. To enter the giveaway you had to follow their rules/terms and conditions. It was easy and clearly stated, so I submitted my information along with a photo of a ring I had made using their pliers and turquoise chips. I kind of forgot about it, because I rarely ever win anything, so I just put it out of my mind. Needless to say, a few weeks later I received an e-mail of Congratulations YOU WON. I was so excited and replied immediately with the required information. A short time afterwards, I received a treasure box of 2 new shaping plies, a couple strands of beads, several loose cabochons, a pair of earrings, and stick-on nail color. What a fun treasure box that totally brightened my day. I am excited to try out the new pliers and add those cute beads to a new design. I’ll keep you posted on what I make.
You can check out the tools and more on Wubbers University on Facebook😊
Have you ever wanted to make jewelry for yourself or as a gift? I can show you how in a private or small group, or zoom session. Theses sessions make great gifts too.
Estate sales make for interesting finds.... You can make some really cool stuff. I love upcycling vintage bottle caps because they have such a rich history in our culture. They make unique fun jewelry. Here I domed each bottle cap and added a band of vintage Chez seed beads for added interest and color. They are light weight and are certainly to bring complements and envy from those who appreciate handcrafted eclectic jewelry.
