Janna Bowman...Art Extraordinaire...Giveaway

 This is my friend Janna Bowman.  She is a wicked cool artist and I wanted to share some of her work with you.  She makes the most amazing things out of glass and she's one of my childhood friends.


 Isn't this necklace beautiful?


 How cool are these peace pendants?


 I'm telling you the girl has skills!


 She does the most fantastic mosaics!



So my wicked cool, talented, friend has a treat for you....
She is going to give away this beautiful necklace to one lucky commenter. 


 All you have to do is hop over to Janna's Etsy site to check out her other art
 & hop back and leave a comment here.


I'll announce the winner on March 7th.
 (I certainly don't mind if you tweet or share on Facebook.)

Don't you love it when you can share a friend's talents with other friends?

Just coming by to say hello and hope you are well :)

Carolina Valdez Miller said...

Oh my goodness, how beautiful! I dream about having that kind of talent. But I can't draw a stick figure without having to label it. Sniff.

mshatch said...

Love the fish mosaic! It's gorgeous :)

Crystal Collier said...

What can I say? Artists are awesome...unless they're mean, in which case they're not as awesome...but since she's YOUR friend, I know she's terribly nice, and what a great talent!

Janna is so talented. Her pieces are beautiful and unique. She has a cool site. I'll add some of her pieces to my Pinterest board tonight. Not sure how to pin with my iPad mini, which is what I use to sneak in a comment once or twice a day while caring for the little rascal. He keeps me hppin'. Not much time for social media! I think Janna will get lots of business if her pieces are on Pinterest. Take care, Sharon.

Robyn Campbell said...

Just hopped over to Janna s site. Does she make candles? I loved the one I saw.

Amy L. Sonnichsen said...

So beautiful! And I love the recycling theme. And those vintage cards are so fun, too. My husband's grandma gave us a bunch like that right before she passed away and it's fun to actually use them. People really appreciate how cool they are! :)

Janna Bowman said...

Sharon....this has been so great! I love all of the great feedback and wonderful comments! I have been so distracted with all of the SNOW and struggling all day trying to get mail delivered!!! It is really nice to hear kind words.....really a boost! Thank you so much everyone!
