I don't do Black Friday & the winner is ......

I don't do Black Friday, so I did a giveaway instead, because every piece I make is made for order and not mass produced. There is no extra stock because everything is made with love and with intention. I won't go into all the waste / landfill that comes post Black Friday too. So to celebrate the month of November outside of its typical holidays, I decided to giveaway TWO of my Citrine ☀️Heart Shaped Padlocks! Citrine, named after the citrus fruit but also known to be a ‘gift from the sun’.

The giveaway was full of positivity and happiness for the arrival of summer, especially with borders reopening soon. It was great to hear everyone’s heartfelt responses and their relationship with the sun! Thank you to everyone who took the time and participated in my giveaway!

There were so many wonderful answers, but here were the winning entries:

the sun means stability. It always rises and sets, it’s a constant. To me it symbolises steadiness and strength.

To me, the sun is a symbol of my gorgeous friend Emma, who is always excitable, warm, and happy. With her blonde hair and Cheshire Cat grin she is just like my own human sun ☀️ 

I loved reading everyone’s different responses, so I thought you might want to read some too! Thank you again to everyone who participated and continue to support Serpent and the Swan! Keep reading on for ALL answers:
