We’re celebrating here at AJE and once again it’s all down to you – our wonderful readers!

Earlier this week we passed the 2000 followers milestone on our Facebook page and we think that deserves a little something special so we’re have a mega giveaway. One lucky winner is in line to win this bumper collection of beautiful art beads made by members of the AJE team…

There are pieces by Jenny Davies-Reazor, Caroline Dewison, Jennifer Cameron, Susan Kennedy, Kristen Stevens, Karen Totten, Rebekah Payne and me and yes…all these goodies will go to one person.

To take part in the giveaway all you have to do is leave ONE comment on this post and we will then pick a winner using Random.Org. You have until 12 midnight EDT on Monday 5th October to leave your comment and we will announce the winner on the blog on Tuesday 6th October. Please feel free to share the love on your social media sites.

Once again thank you to all our loyal supporters and good luck!

    I absolutely adore following your blogs, find the originality breathaking! I am just "dabbling " with polymer clay and boy am I finding it difficult! It wasn't until I started trying/playing with it myself did I realise how time consuming it is – so I salute you all, whatever medium you use! Thank you for this chance of entering your draw. I really appreciate it. Good luck everyone!

    "Way to go!" Going over the 2,000 mark, is quite an achievement… Your handmade jewelry pieces are gorgeous and truly one of a kind. I have friends who are breast cancer survivors, and my sister is currently fighting two forms of cancer. It would be fun to hand out your artistic beauties…
    Thanks, Cindi
