Last week's giveaway for TierraCast's Dulce Vida Collection was a runaway! So many of you were charmed (pun intended) by the beautiful and high quality pieces which easily sparked all sorts of creative ideas. Maria Rosa Sharrow said it for all of you, "I can see why this line is called Dulce Vida - these components are rich and beautiful." And thank you for the kind comments for my design ideas.

At least one reader commented on the resemblance to precious metal clay. Divya said, "The components look like they were made of metal clay which would lend a more "handmade" feel to the finished pieces."  Touche.

Penny made me chuckle when she said, "They look like earring posts that somebody stepped on." The posts are protected with rubber tubing but the posts do flatten down in shipping. Easy enough to get them into position!

A couple of readers wondered about retail suppliers as you cannot get the components directly from Tierracast (wholesale only).  Fire Mountain Gems is one supplier which has several of their components.

So who won this fabulous collection? I numbered all the eligible entries and got the random number generator over on to do the picking.  The very lucky winner is Rochelle Theodore! Congratulations!
