CONTEST AND GIVEAWAY!

Delve into your vocabulary and win free stuff!


recently, i have been creating lockets with definitions from antique dictionaries. sometimes i make them into pendants, and sometimes i use them in my collage necklaces.

but i need some help coming up with some good words to use.



THE CONTEST:
reply to this post with some ideas for words to feature in my lockets, and if i like your suggestions, you will be entered to win one of my glass tile pendants with the word of your choice on it! (it doesn't have to be the word you suggested) family and friends are encouraged to participate! all are welcome! (well, in the continental U.S., that is)


hints:

pick words that would appeal to a large number of people, words that are not too long, and words that people would generally be aware of the meaning. for example, "verisimilitude" is a sweet word, but people don't know what it means, and it is way too long to fit in one of my lockets.
"dung" is a short word, and people know what it means, but it is not too appealing for a piece of jewelry. get it?

the contest is open for the month of october! please include a means of contacting you with your post. the winner will be chosen at random from all entries with words i can use in my art!

please check out my jewelry at:
