Raffle to fundraise for the DEC Gaza Appeal


I am currently raffling this original solid silver mini picture of a moon gazing hare to raise funds for the DEC Gaza Appeal. The appeal is to raise funds for families who have lost everything and currently have no shelter, food, or access to basic life essentials and are living in intolerable conditions. It is not a political statement it is a humanitarian appeal.

The picture measures approximately 80 x 50 mm and weighs in at over 40g of sterling silver.
I made it using the traditional technique of chasing and repousse, which employs hammers and punches to stretch and shape the metal to form the detail of the picture. It’s usual retail price is £225 but you could be the lucky owner by winning the raffle!

For a donation of £5 to my Justgiving page you get a “virtual raffle ticket” entered into the draw, £10 gets you 2 entries and so on. The draw will be held on 31st August.
If you do donate then please be sure to leave your name on your donation at Justgiving, and also email me on [email protected] so I can get in touch with you if you’re the lucky winner!

Visit my justgiving page to enter at and remember to uncheck the gift aid box as this is NOT eligible.
Good Luck!

Earring Giveaway Competition

Let’s face it, January can be a pretty miserable month, so how about a lovely treat to cheer you up….?

Here at Lucylou Designs I am a firm believer that something silver, gorgeous, shiny and FREE is a pretty brilliant way to cheer anyone up, which is why I am giving you the chance to win a pair of sterling silver handmade earrings, worth £20.

Simple and Elegant. Gorgeous. Beautiful and Simple.  These are all actual customer comments about these earrings.

They are made from 3 interlocking sterling silver loops, formed from 1.2mm round wire, in the style of a russian wedding ring.  These are then suspended from a smaller silver loop, on the end of a length of fine silver chain.

They are very light and comfortable to wear.  The drop measures approximately 5cm.  As with all my designs they are all handmade using traditional silversmithing techniques, and beautifully finished.

Light enough for everyday wear, glamorous enough for a special evening out….!

To enter the competition draw all you have to do is complete the following steps:

1LIKE Lucylou Designs facebook page if you haven’t already  at

2. SHARE the status about the competition on your facebook page (no cheating – I will be checking!)

3. COMMENT at the end of this blog to let me know why YOU should win the earrings.

The winner will be drawn at random from the entries who have complied with the 3 steps above, on 31.1.13,  and they will be notified by email.

What are you waiting for?  GOOD LUCK!
