December’s Survey Winner is Here!

Congratulations to Carol Eldridge, our Survey Winner for December! Carol has won a $100 Cool Tools gift certificate simply for taking our survey!

Carol was very excited and told us a little about herself:

“I seldom win anything, so learning that I won the December survey contest was very exciting for me, especially since I love your products; and this gives me the opportunity to own even more.

I’ve been involved with many crafts throughout my life, but jewelry making is the one I’ve hit upon that most satisfies my creative desires.  I’ve spent many happy hours working with many types of jewelry making mediums (bead weaving, loom work, stringing, wirework).  I’ve even managed to sell a number of my projects.  But the medium I am most excited about is metal clay.  I am definitely a beginner in the metal clay arena; however, I look forward to making it my lifelong passion.  I long to improve my skills to the level of creating saleable metal clay jewelry and am reading, attending workshops and practicing every possible minute I can.  I’ve spent so much money on all the wonderful tools available for making metal clay jewelry that I need to advance to selling my products to justify the purchases I’ve made, not to mention those I’ve yet to make.  Thank you for the opportunity to add to my stockpile.”

After every purchase, you receive an email asking you to tell us about your experience through our survey. Your thoughts help us get better and a winner is selected every month! Help us congratulate Carol this month!
