DZFANTASY'S SEPTEMBER GIVEAWAY - RAINBOW MERMAID FANTASY SCULPTURE!

Rainbow Mermaid

This newly created fiber sculpted "RAINBOW MERMAID" is my DZFANTASY "GIVEAWAY" for the month of SEPTEMBER. PLEASE NOTE: Since I am going to be on vacation starting October 1st, this giveaway won't be running for the full month of September.

I am running this giveaway from SEPT. 1st - SEPT. 25th!! The giveaway will end at 12 midnight on Sept. 25th. Due to the fact that I won't have time to wait for the randomly chosen winner to reply within 3 days.

I would like anyone, who cares to enter, to leave either their email or some other means of contacting them immediately after the drawing. I want to be able to ship the mermaid prior to going on vacation. THANKS!

To enter the "GIVEAWAY" all you have to do is the following:
1. Leave a comment!
2. In order to have some means of identifying you, should you be the lucky winner of this one-of-a-kind, fantasy sculpture....PLEASE leave the following:
3. Either your email or another means of contacting you. If you don't want to leave your email in your comment, please forward it to me at my email address:
dzfairies@msn.com

WINNER'S name will be randomly drawn at the close of the giveaway, and WINNER'S name will be posted out here on my DZFANTASY BLOG. WINNER will than have 3 days in which to contact me via email at: dzfairies@msn.com so be sure to leave a unique means of identification. It can be your first name, middle initials, nickname, etc.
If posted WINNER does not respond within the 3 day time frame, a NEW name will be randomly picked and posted out here on DZFANTASY.

This enchanting mermaid is one of my 6.5" tall wall style mermaids. She has a loop on the back of her neck, so that you can either hang her on the wall, dangle her from a bit of colorful ribbon or clear fishing line, or she can also be displayed by standing her on a shelf, with her "tacked" to the wall. She is NOT freestanding!

Her upper body/face are 100% silk fabric. Her face has been individually hand-drawn, needle-sculpted and hand-painted by me. Her eyes and lips have a coat of crystal clear lacquer, which gives her a very life-like look and shine.

Her tail fabric is a gorgeous, rainbow batik fabric. Her colorful hairdo was designed out of one of my favorite Italian yarns, and has a metallic thread running throught the soft wispy eyelash...which gives her a very magical look. Her accents are Swarovski crystals, real sea shells, and tiny glass seed beads, which have been hand-sewn onto the mermaid. She even has a Swarovski crystal belly button.

GOOD LUCK!!

I have been fascinated with mermaids for many years. My halloween costumes were mermaids and I lived at the pool as much as I could. This is an excellent prize, beautiful and would fit right in with my love for mermaids.

Whow such wonderful work. It reminds me of the time my son was in Jr. High & played sick. I said yes not knowing an English project was due. I found out he was to create Christmas Past, Present or Future & turn it in that day. So I sat him down with an old sock in around 2 hours he created Christmas Future, teacher loved it.
It isn't anywhere near you quality though, just the idea.Thank you
