My first giveaway!

When I first began blogging, I thought I'd alway be a tiny speck in cyberspace with nobody to read my posts except a few friends. Things have certainly changed since then!

My 200th post will be coming up soon and I wanted to do something special and something Kiwi to celebrate. I decided to do a giveaway for this paua (abalone) necklace.





This is a traditional Maori carving called 'Koru' which represents the fern frond as it opens, symbolizing peace and new birth.

The necklace comes with an adjustable string, as you can see in the photos.


Any published comment on this blog from now until the 200th post (this post is #195) will have an entry into the drawing. If you comment on each post, you will have 6 entries!

Good luck!

I love paua shell jewelery! It captures all of the most amazing colors...

I have a fish hook one but it isnt paua... its cherry wood... but still pretty I think.
Anyway, great pick for the giveaway!

This is so funny. I'm about to host my first giveaway over at WR, and I was thinking about giving away a paua necklace too. Twins!
