It is long past time I thank all of my Followers with a Give Away. I especially would like to thank those of you who regularly contribute here. Letting me know you have been here by leaving a comment has led me to your blogs to meet you, enjoy your work and collections. I have made some wonderful friends since I started this blog, just over a year ago.
I made the lampshade out of an off white silk satin. The square base of the lamp is black onyx as is the black finial at the top of the shade. All the metal parts are solid brass. The center (bead) is not missing a dab of paint. All of these beads I have are just like this one. I am afraid I am a lousy photographer...I think they are exceptionally beautiful beads. The brushed gold element in the design is raised. Yes this is a working lamp. I intend to make another lamp just like this one for myself.
This Give Away is for the lamp and lampshade only. I just added the other things so you could see the scale of it. All that is necessary to participate is to be one of my 374 Followers and leave me a comment so I know you are interested. The winner will be announced on May 01, 2011.
I will try to take better photos in the morning to replace these very bad ones. ;-) Thank you for visiting Kilmouski & Me.
Welcome to my blog!
I am artist and a metalsmith. I have always loved miniatures and dollhouses. My interest in making miniatures is not restricted to the metal work I do. This year I plan to design and build a dollhouse.
I do not sell the miniatures I am making right now while I am trying to build my own collection.
Who is Kilmouski? ... He's my cat. And he sits right next to me no matter how many hours I work.
