My answer to both questions is: Items to make jewelry! (Don't enter me in the drawing) ;-)

Sharyl said...

Thanks, Lisa! (You are the most winning person I've ever met! ha! You are very kind to sit one out every now and then, but feel free to join us again soon!)

The Creative Klutz said...

Wow - I won ... this is my first ever giveaway win - thanks so much =)

I'd also have to say stuff to make jewellery (although your finished pieces are amazing too) ... and I'll bow out on this one as well since I won the last one ;)

Afar items to make jewelry is my answer to both!,

Unknown said...

Congrats Creative Klutz! My answer to both is also the components to make jewelry, though in your case, I'd be thrilled with either. Love your work!

Skye said...

I think all those who create their own jewelry would 'prefer' to win items to create with. I know I do :) It's how my artbead collection got started, after all ;) And how I no doubt helped to start someone elses art bead collection :)
Plus, this give the added bonus of the 'advertising' you'll receive when your items are used and the finished jewerly shown off! :D

Personally, yes I'd prefer items to create with, too ;)

Sharyl said...

Congrats, Creative Klutz! I sent your gift certificate to your email earlier this evening! Hope you enjoy shopping!

Thanks to all for your answers! I think I see a trend forming! We'll see if it continues as more replies come in. (It feels a bit like early election returns! ha!) I'll share my own preferences when this give-away ends!

Eugenie said...

I'm more likely to buy items to make jewelry but I like to win both jewelry or items.

Glorious Beads said...

I would most likely buy items to make jewelry, and I would be overjoyed to win items to make jewelry! Glad to post this to my Facebook too! Love the pieces I see here.

Unknown said...

My answer to both questions is B
I've just gotten back into my hobby of jewelry making and need to restock my supplies :)

Cathy Majorossy said...

I prefer items to make jewelry with! Although, love all the items in your shop. Beautiful work! :)

Norbel said...

Well, Sharyl, my answer is 1. Mostly likely to buy "things to make jewelry" and 2. I would wish to win "jewelry"! I haven't purchased a single piece of jewelry since I started making jewelry. I also haven't made anything for myself! Everything I purchase is components, so I think just this once, since I love your jewelry, I'd like to win jewelry. Thanks for including me in the giveaway!! :)

Tanya said...

Congratulations to Creative Klutz. And thanks, Sharyl, for all the giveaways.

To answer your questions, I buy both, though typically buy components more. If something catches my eye, though, I will snap it up. :) There are always pieces that I could never have thought to make and I do like supporting my favorite designers.

As for winning, I enjoy both as well, although I do like getting components I might not have bought on my own.

Congratulations Creative Klutz! In answer to the 2 questions, I would say Items to Make Jewelry for both! One can never have to many of these! Thank you for the amazing giveaway and pretty please count me in!

Wow! Look at all these comments coming in! Thank you for commenting and for those who have been spreading the word of our week-long sale and give-away!

We got a little more variation of opinion in today's submissions! There are no wrong answers though, only right ones--YOUR person preferences! This gives me some direction for future give-aways! Many thanks to you all!

My favorite item to buy is something to make jewelry. Like someone else, I don't ever purchase jewelry for myself anymore, so I think that would be my favorite item to win--although I would love to win something to make jewelry with too!! Gina H.

Unknown said...

Thanks for the drawing, Sharyl, it's always fun to see what you are up to, my friend.

First, I would most likely buy your components, as you know!!

Secondly, I would love to win components but I love your style of jewelry very much, as I have told you many times.

Thanks for another great topic!

Unknown said...

1) I am most likely to buy items to make jewelry. I enjoy designing jewelry for myself as well as others and feel a sense of accomplishment and pride when doing so.

2) I prefer to win items with which to make jewelry because I can challenge myself to incorporate the items to make a good looking piece of jewelry.

Thank you all so much! I certainly enjoyed all your answers!
