While preparing this blog post I was wracking my brain trying to remember WHERE I had FIRST read about Mark Poulin and his jewelry, because I own a few pieces of his that I actually BOUGHT! (Imagine that!)
The first piece that I had bought was for the BlogPaws Conference that I had attended back in 2011, so I had to have first learned about his fabulous jewelry on another blog prior to that. Whomever you are, I apologize for not crediting you, because I can't remember! You can view my first purchase by visiting Mark's main website right here.
Then, a few weeks ago I was reading one of Dakota's doggy friend's blogs, Come Wag Along, and they were having a give-away and guess who won! You got it! For my prize, I was able to select an item ($36 or less) from either of Mark's Etsy shops:

"This is the place I get to use every day materials like paper and magnets to make art projects that become necklaces or key chains or greeting cards."

Marmar is my first etsy store.
This is the core of my metalsmithing style, it is where I mix my charm designs and my enamel cartoon line. Years ago I took some metal classes at the local Recreation center here in Oakland called Studio One. I learned how to make a wax carving from a drawing and how to cast it in to sterling silver. It still a process that fills me with excitement and fuels my creativity. The only thing I love more than metal work is drawing and the marmar collection allows me to keep doing both. My biggest challenge is editing my drawings down to their simplest essence so they will still pack in the personality but can still be worn as jewelry. If you love animals like me this is the place to be.

This piece is going to be one that I will cherish forever. I already have pieces to represent Cody and Dakota but none to honor my beloved and dearly missed "Soul Kitty", Bobo. I chose this necklace to have him near me always. The only difference is I chose an 18" silver chain. It is now one of the favorite pieces that I own.
The BEST news? One of our lucky readers (we apologize but due to the cost of shipping this give-away is limited to U.S. ONLY) can choose an item priced at $36 or less from either of Mark's Etsy Shops. Enter using the Rafflecopter below and good luck!
