Have you begun to think about gifts for the upcoming holiday season? I like finding unique, handcrafted ones for friends and family.
In May, several of the Portland Kidlit community hosted an on-line silent auction for our friend Bridget Zinn (battling stage 4 colon cancer). One of the auction items was this fabulous silver bracelet created by Laura Ludwig Hamor:

Not only did Laura send one bracelet, she sent three! One went to Bridget and the other two were big hits in the auctions.
Well, Laura had told me that she was working on getting a blog of her silver work together and her store at etsy.com. I recently received an email from with an update.
So here is a fabulous wonderful place to visit if you are looking for a special gift for that creative person in your life. Her new silver website is over at etsy. You can find it by going to www.SilverFreckles.com.
At her blog, Laura Ludwig Hamor, she says this about her work, “I love the process of creating silver pieces, and most of all I love the result. As a clay artist with a love of jewelry it is the best of both worlds.”
She has a blog contest going for her birthday, November 12. Anyone who promotes http://www.etsy.com/shop/silverfreckles will be entered into a drawing for one of her fabulous creations.
If you have bought a bracelet from her in the past, go to her blog and let her know. You will be entered in the contest and if you should by chance mention that you read it here, I will get another chance!
Otherwise, I am putting her website on my Christmas and birthday lists. Generous people such as Laura deserve support.
And you can follow Laura on facebook at SILVERFRECKLES! I am looking forward to reading her blog about her creative process as it unfolds.
Thank you to Laura for allowing me to use photos of her work.
