On the fifth day of Giveaway - GENEVIEVE MOTLEY. This lovely lady makes contemporary jewellery with a whimsical twist. She combines modern techniques with natural materials, found objects and vintage charms. Gen has the sunniest disposition and her work reflects the joy she finds in life. Romantic pieces with clean lines, delicate detail and a sense of fun. Gen is a regular at the IHEART market, has a mini shop at MOOI and is stocked by discerning shop keepers across the country plus on ETSY.

First up from Gen for the Giveaway is a perspex blackbird necklace. He has a lustrous sheen like the wingfeather of a starling  and a jaunty angle to his head like a cheeky crow - not to mention being my blogs namesake.

Now you know I have a penchant for bears and this handsome fella is the cats pjamas! A lazer cut wooden brooch with a wonderful smokey scorched edge - would be at home on a manly lapel as well as a tee or structured blouse.

Thirdly a black and white swan cameo ring, like a obsidian boiled sweet decorated with royal icing 'cept you can keep it forever and ever. Ladylike but with a lovely gothic edge. It is adjustable.
