Actually, this one is keeping a promise I made a few months ago…To offer a piece of jewelry with the gorgeous Krobo beads from Ghana. This one also has colorful wood beads as accents and knotted onto tan Genya cord, an organic stringing material.  The length is about 26 inches and easily slips over the head.

Here are the few simple rules.

1.  To be eligible, you must reside in the U.S. or Canada.

2.  To enter, just leave a comment on this post.

Scroll to the bottom of this post and click “add comment”.  Be sure you add your email where prompted. Your email address is seen only by me. One entry per person please.

3.  Entries must be posted by Tuesday, January 17th, at 12:00 noon Pacific Standard Time.  Two weeks from today, January 2nd.

4.  The randomly selected winner will be chosen using  They will be contacted by the email listed in the comment and have one week from that date to respond.  Arrangements will be made to securely package and mail the winner’s prize.  If I don’t hear from them, then another winner will be selected and contacted under the same procedure.

Good Luck and Happy New Year!  I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the start of a new year of making jewelry than sharing it.

    I first was attracted to your jewelry om Lima Beads and saw your Ghana bead necklace giveaway. So hear I am on your website. I really like your necklace. I have a problem with my workplace too. It is a disaster and I’ve got two necklaces on the table to finish and a million beads everywhere on mats from earrings I was making for Christmas. It will take days of cleaning and sorting to to find my way to making anything new. I like to give my jewelry to people for free too. Every woman should have something nice! Thanks

    Lynda, just saw your lovely necklace at Lima Beads. I love the colors. I make jewelry for fun and giving to friends and family.
    I haven’t worked with cord before, but may give it a try as one can vary the length. I am traveling to Indonesia this summer and want to make some bracelets as gifts to our Indonesian “granddaughters”. I think they would like the colors of the Ghana beads. Thank you for your ideas.
