Autumn Bead Challenge: Not Your Go-To Colors!

fallbeadchallenge13Greetings and Welcome to our
Autumn 2013 Bead Design Challenge! 🙂

This year’s theme will be:

“Break Out of Your Color Comfort Zone”!

We’re all attracted to our favorite colors but sometimes the results can be amazing if we experiment with the shades we seldom use!

Please join us! I know you’ll enjoy the experience! If you love to play with beads and findings – this challenge can be a win/win for you!

At the very least, you’ll have made something new for yourself. 🙂
But maybe you’ll use your design as a holiday gift.
Of course, if you have a shop, you could have another item to sell!

But there’s MORE!

To Qualify as a “Registered Participant” (and be eligible for a chance to win a Shopping Spree, receive the Discount Coupon, and Promotion of your design) you must do the following:

1. Create your design using at least two products (beads or findings) purchased from our etsy bead shop. You may buy more than two products, of course, but I imagine you will want to use items from your own stash to complement your choices from Bead Happily Ever After!

2. Email a clear photo (just one!) of your finished design by November 15, 2013 to:

crystal (at) beadhappilyeverafter (dot) com

3. Include:
Your Name
Your Email address
The Link (if any) you’d like me to place with your design when I promote your work!

Optional: Feel free to add a brief description of your design when you send in your photo!

The Boring Stuff . . .
You must be 18 yrs., or over, to enter. After the completion of the challenge, the names of the two gift certificate winners will be announced here and they will also be notified by email. If a winner fails to respond to email within one week from the time notification email has been sent, the win will be null and void and a new winner will be chosen. All registered entrants will receive a 30% off coupon code, by email, at the conclusion of the challenge.

When you enter, you retain all rights to your original designs, but you give permission for Bead Happily Ever After to use your photo on our sites to promote and showcase your work.

  1. OMG, how exciting!!! What a great theme, Crystal. It’s so easy to get into a rut of the same colors all the time. This will really get the gears turning! I can’t wait to see what everyone submits. Your prizes are really great too…they always are! Have a great fall weekend sweetie! xoxo
