    And of course your bracelets!

  3. I love me a giveaway! I'd like to see some of the wood collage rings (I think I got that right) that you were talking about. Also, always more bracelets. I never get tired of admiring your bracelets.

  4. Yippee! Love your bracelets and earings. Actually I love all of your things. Helpful, isn't that?

  5. as you know I love all of your designs. After seeing you lovely clay pieces I called up a local potter here in town and she's going to help me make some of my own pendants. If they turn out I'll post them to my blog:)

  6. Great giveaway!!! I must say I love all your work - you are an inspiration. I am especially taken with you bracelets - I love the combination of materials - but then again I am in a bracelet mood right now.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Ooh...What a great giveaway :o) I love everything you make, but I really love the necklaces you put in the shop...I'm like you in that bracelets are fun to make and can go SO much faster than necklaces, but I would like to see more necklaces again :o)

    ReplyDelete
  8. Fabulous!! I think that it would be nice to just keep seeing what you come up with from whatever inspires you. Whatever you make is already wonderful, I can not possibly come up with something better than what you already make :)

    I admire all you do!! I would like to see maybe some necklaces and earrings that are a little edgy, or mod..eclectic. More earrings !!!

    ReplyDelete
  10. OMG! What an awesome, awesome giveaway!!!!

    I love everything that you do. I say continue on with your style, and you could certainly repeat popular designs but just by changing the colors it would give it a whole new look!

  11. I love the Dreaming in Tangerine bracelets...I love all of your designs of course.

    Lorelei, Your designs are so "outside the box" to me, I would never think to put things together the way you do...so artsy and fabulous! Your work stretches my imagination, you are a true teacher and leader in the best ways possible.

  13. Hi Lorelei! Id love to see some old things! Like the pendants with the horn backed with a picture, and you made a lovely Gaea necklace with the sky on the heart bead. Count me in ok? Keep up the lovely work! xx

    ReplyDelete
  14. I love the Sabine pieces and also the lucite flower earrings - so happy and sunny!

  15. I love it when you have double strands in necklaces & bracelets. Especially when only part of it is double stranded and the majority is a single strand. Or when you weave ribbons through chains. Or your pieces with wooden beads. Yeah, you pretty much rock with all your jewelry! :D

    ReplyDelete
  16. Great googly-moogly! That is a FANTASTIC giveaway! I think I need to up the ante on my next one!

    You always do such inspired work. I really love that you feature so many great artists in your pieces. You have introduced me to many. I would love to see more of that.

    Enjoy the day, Miss Lorelei!

  19. Hi, Wow...what a fantastic Give Away this is! Beautiful, gorgeous necklace and great magazine...anyone and everyone would be so happy to win this!
    I actually love everything you make, everything is so awesome! But and this is only because you asked, I would have to say a necklace with a beautiful clay focal bead and then your ribbons through the chains to go along with it, maybe even a twist of a double or even a triple chain.
    Have a great day and thanks so much for this chance of this wonderful Give Away!
    Hugs...

  20. You know I LOVE all of your work and am amazed how fresh your ideas are however I have to agree with Kelleysbeads - I am drawn to the double strands and weaving silk into jewelry.
    Don't stop - your talent is incredible!

  23. I like your designs, your creativity and most of all your inspiration. I'm new to the beading world, having wandered over from the polymer clay side so I'm pretty much a sponge right now, just learning everything I can. Thanks for sharing.

  27. Thanks for a good, old fashioned giveaway that only involves leaving a comment, lol! The magazine and necklace is a great prize! I saw you had a poll about rings on your blog...I would love to see what rings you could come up with! Other than that, I think you have a great selection of items. Of course, I always like to see what new designs you imagine up! Thanks for being a reliable source of inspiration :)

    EVERYTHING you create speaks to my heart. I especially love the Vintaj elements and have created two Lorelei inspired pieces myself. I read your blog everyday and even go back and read older posts for inspiration. I hope that's not considered stalking!! LOL - Mel

  33. I love your designs, and this is an incredible giveaway. I traded with you a good while back for a wonderful necklace that I especially love. Actually, my daughter Kathryn grabbed it the moment she saw it, and I usually get to enjoy seeing it on her! The pendant you used was identical to the Vintaj Rustic Dasiy Pendant - I am particularly fond of it, and the colorful glass beads you used were perfect.

  34. Lorelei, thank you for this stupendous giveaway. This necklace is beautiful. I am a big fan of your jewelry. I started my collection a while ago. All of your pieces are of excellent quality and beauty. Your style is definitely earthy. I will suggest that you maintain your style but depending on the season of the year, you can add elements that define that season. Example, on Spring, you made some pieces with lampwork and glasses with figures and spring colors. I bought one of those pieces. On Summer, I have noticed that you have made some pieces with ocean theme figures. On Autumn, you can use quartz stones or other ones that denotes this season. You can check the fashion magazines. The same for Winter season. You can use more sparkly stones like Swarovski beads. But always remember to conserve your unique earthy style. I love it!!!!

    What a wonderful giveaway! It was thanks to that beautiful necklace that I discovered your jewellery and your blog, which I visit quite often. It would also be great to have an American magazine about making jewellery.
    I want you to make more earrings, earrings, earrings! (Dangling ones.)

    Oh, I'm so excited to join in here. What a wonderful give away...I'd love a copy of the magazine and the necklace is stunning (per usual). My vote is for Lorelei classics that mix different elements...especially anything in a charm style. I heart your necklaces. :-)

  39. Hello Lorelei, What a fabulous giveaway -- such a generous spirit you have. You have sucha playful and eclectic style and vision. keep up the good -- no change that -- GREAT work!

  40. Oh I love your work. I would love to see an anklet or two in your shop. I love wearing them in the summer with shorts and sandals. I'm not sure if you've made them before, but I'm sure and anklet made by you would be wonderful.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Hi, this is the first time I write a comment even if I follow your blog since a long time, but the idea of your giveaway is too tempting! I simply LOVE your creations, mainly your bracelets and I'd like to see just things as you do now...that's your style!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I lovce your vintage looking bracelets...you should make lotsa more!!!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Lori, thanks for sharing... I would love to see a lesson from you (the expert) on color combinations and how they change the feel of a design. I know it is somthing that comes to you naturally, but I would appreciate if you can give a hint to us non-experts. Nicki

  44. My favorites are with blues & greens. I love necklaces that mix in silk ribbon.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I love your necklaces with charms and sayings...Oh, and I also love to see them adorned with glass beads...
    Anything you make Lorelei is beautiful...

    ReplyDelete
  46. I don't know if you've thought about this, but I really like when you make connectors, claps, etc. with wire. I'm a seed-beader and don't work well with metals, so I buy all of the connectors and things that I use. I enjoy looking at your pieces to see how you do the findings and finishings. I would definitely purchase some of your handmade clasps and connectors. Maybe you could continue to make them by working in the art beads that I know you love. Keep up the good work and thanks for the giveaway.

  49. keep the same things in your shop that you have now. it's all wonderful!

  50. Just want to say, don't change your style, it's perfect!

    I always enjoy the creative earring designs you come up with, and so I would love to see more of those. Some of them really tempted me to get earholes... but I don't think I will, so it's probably a little selfish of me to ask for more since I'm not likely to buy them ;)
    Oh, now that I think of it, I liked the lariat necklace you made recently, how about more of those? It seemed to be sold really fast.

  54. I really like your Key Largo bracelet. Great giveaway.

  55. It is impossible to pick a favorite type of your jewelry...it is all fabulous! I guess I wear more bracelets (and rings) than necklaces, so would have to go with that.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I just discovered your blog - and I love all your jewelry. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I love how you seem to grab an eclectic assortment of beads, chains, and findings and whip them together into fabulous pieces. You have a definite style: I can open up a magazine and pick out your pieces without even seeing your name.

    Love the necklaces!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Beautiful, inspiring, creative. I have loved your designs since discovering you through Elaine Ray's facebook page. I agree with the request of some long dangly earrings. But I truly couldn't come up with one of my own. You already have it going on!

    ReplyDelete
  59. I love your style so much, if I had to choose I would say more stuff like aphrodite or island vacation, but then I am biased and just adore the colour combos on those two peices. Keep up the good work!

    ReplyDelete
  60. You know I love your stuff...I'm really looking forward to seeing your fall line:)

    ReplyDelete
  61. I love your materialcombos. Your style and work is totally different from mine, but I do get inspired by your ideas of colorcombining and materials to use.. I love the pieces with vintage brass and ceramic beads...

  62. Please enter me! I love your stuff, Lorelei! I especially like everything you make with Jade Scott's pendants.

  63. I really love all your jewelry. I guess if I had to choose, I'd like to see more rings. I'm a ring junkie =)

    I like the way you combine elements from different artists in necklaces and especially charm bracelets. The leather wrap bracelets are my favorite.

    Thanks for doing this giveaway.

  65. Just found your blog and new to your work which is just fabulous. I love everything so don't have any comments on new styles. All gorgeous! Beth

  66. What a generous giveaway! I do love all of your work, but I am partial to the river rock pieces, lol! I also love your new bracelet posted today, very intriguing with different elements, you always make it work!

  67. I'm a big bracelet fan - chunky and colorful with metal elements. :)

    I love reading yor Blog and seeinga ll the groovy things you come up with : ) ~
    I would love to see some asymetrical earrings in "like" colours....let your muse fly!

    ReplyDelete
  69. The Kiss necklace is one of my favorites among your designs, so I just have to leave a comment today. I like where you've been going recently, especially the use of four-holed (as opposed to shank) buttons as closures. The oversized one you used in that bracelet recently looked fabulous!

    ReplyDelete
  70. boy, how could I forget to enter such an awesome giveaway, thanks for the reminder! I think you do a balanced asymetrical better than most. That sounds like an oxymoron but I hope you know what I mean. I really love all your designs and the way you coordinate things rather than matchy-matchy. Beautiful! I'd say keep bringing those fresh touchs to all your designs, reinventing as you go, as you have done

    ReplyDelete
  71. Almost forgot to enter!
    I like how you use many different components on one piece. :)

    ReplyDelete
  72. I'm a big fan of what you do. I love the way you combine different elements and textures for a finished piece. As for buying, what usually attracts me is color, or findings that speak to me. Typically buy more bracelets and earrings than necklaces, but I LOVED the Kiss necklace. Keep up the fantastic work! ... and thanks for sharing with all of us.

  73. Lorelei--
    I always love your designs and projects; I have to say the bracelets get me every time! Congrats on all the "press" in this 2009 issue of Creative Jewelry. What a tempting giveaway, too--very generous.
