Inspiration Photo Contest

Wow, it’s been awhile since I blogged. I hate being such a slouch of a blogger. This has been a crazy summer, and every time I think of something to blog about, something more important comes up.

Also, over the last few weeks, I’ve made very little in the way of new jewelry. Part of it is time constraints from the aforementioned crazy summer. However, I think the majority of the reason I haven’t been creating is because my inspiration seems sapped. Those hectic moments in our lives are not usually good at providing inspiration. I even revisited my huge stack of coffee table books. The last time I dug into those books for inspiration, I worked for months after! Not this time. Nothing. This is where you come in.

Starting today and going through Friday, August 31st, I’ll be holding an inspiration photo contest. And get this! Everyone who enters will win a random prize! Crazy, right? The random prizes will range from 5% to 50% off coupons that you can use in my Esty shop or on my website. You could also win a pair of Silver Plume Earrings or a Poppies and Pavement ring in your size. And here’s the best part: you will win a prize for each entry you submit, up to three! I use a random number generator in Excel, so your prizes really will be random. If you enter twice and the magic number generator generates two 50% off coupons for you, that’s what you get!

“So how do I enter this crazy contest?” you may be asking yourself. Well, I’ll tell you.

Email me a photo that inspires you (Please click HERE for my email address). Not what you think or know inspires me. Obviously, my normal inspiration isn’t cutting it right now, so I need something different. This can be any photo, whether you took it or not. If you didn’t take the photo, please try to include information about who did or a weblink to where the photo comes from. (Up to three entries will be accepted)  While you’re there, make sure to “Like” my page, if you haven’t already.  I’ll respond to you as soon as possible with your random prize. That’s it! That’s all you have to do.

I’ll upload the photos that I really like (feel free to tag yourself in the ones you submitted, but it’s not required). Entries will be accepted through Friday night, and I’ll announce a winner by Sunday at the latest.

“Wait! What’s the grand prize!?” I can hear you asking right now. Did you see the ring at the top of this post? The person who submits the winning photo will win that ring in their size! But wait! There’s more! as those stupid infomercials like to say. The winner will also get their very own coupon for 25% off of anything… FOR LIFE! I’m not just a metalsmith, folks. I’m CRRRRRAAAAZY! Ok, enough TV announcer crap.

Get entering! The fun starts…….. NOW!

New Website!… Again, and a Giveaway!


Clicking the above photo will take you right to my new website at http://www.janefont.bigcartel.com!

At 10:00 am MST today, I will be unveiling my new website. Yeah, I know I’ve done this before, but last time I had delusions of grandeur, and I had no idea how to create, maintain, or run an actual website. Now I’m much wiser and have something I’ll have no problem maintaining, and it even looks good! I think… This is where you come into play.

As part of my unveiling, I’m looking for your feedback. I will be posting the link to my Facebook page, and I ask that you look through and give me your feedback. Think it’s awful? Tell me! Love it? Tell me! It’s a bit different than anything I’ve done, so I would love to know what you think. You can leave feedback anyway you like: on my Facebook wall, in an email (you can get my email address on Facebook), a Facebook message, or you can even contact me through my new website! Pretty nifty. The person who I feel gives me the most constructive feedback will win any piece of jewelry from my Etsy shop that they like, up to a $60 value. Everyone who pins items from my new shop or shares the link on Facebook will also be entered for an extra prize! (To be entered, please copy and paste on my Facebook wall the link to any pins from my website that you create.) The deadline for feedback entries will be Friday evening.

I look forward to hearing what you have to say!


These are my Tiny Treasures Stacking Rings. There are three sterling silver bands, and two slim copper bands. The treasures are a copper dot, a fine silver domed disk, and a 6mm aventurine. Yummy! This set normally sells in my shop for $90. Want to enter to win this set of stacking rings in your size? Check out my Facebook page here. I’ll have details up later on today. Make sure to tell your friends too. The more people participate, the more likely I am to giveaway two sets!
