The "Inspired by Margot Potter" Give-A-Way!-OVER

 This is a new necklace featuring left over links and findings.
 Margot Potter has a very inspired section in her new book where she shows you different ways to attach links.
 I love the idea of gathering small sections or links that might end up in the trash and using them to create one new interesting necklace.
 I have so many left overs, I could create dozens of interesting necklaces with this idea.
 I don't think I will be able to leave an open space in a component now.
If you would like to be inspired and
if you would love to win Margot's new book from me,
leave a comment!  Thank you for the books Margot!
I'll draw for book winners (I have two to give away) on Sunday!  Anyone can win!

Your necklace turned out wonderfully, and I truly dig the idea of using spare items to create new stuff! Thanks for inspiring me, and for offering a chance at Margot's book.

I love the "left over" concept...it never fails that when I plan out a piece there's always one or two beads left. Thanks to both of you for this great giveaway (LOVE the necklace on the cover of her book!)
