Free Beads – Jewelry Challenge

Greetings Kids! 😀

Today, I’m adding a new feature to the blog.

I’m offering a set of FREE BEADS to five designers!

The only condition is that each person who accepts the beads will make something and send me a photo of the finished product within 10 days of receiving the beads.


All of the designs will be featured in an upcoming post, and I will link to your etsy shop or website if you wish! You can use the beads for any form of jewelry or in any other craft you enjoy. Because this is the first time I’ve offered a Free Beads Design Challenge, I’d like to ask your help in deciding which beads to send . . .

Take a look at the photos below and please let me know in the comments if you think #1, #2, or #3 should be the bead that all 5 designers will use this time! 😀

While you are commenting, be sure and tell me if YOU are interested in participating in this Design Challenge and receiving the free beads.

If there are more than 5 interested, I will use the random number generator to choose the winners. The deadline to enter is Friday, Oct. 21, 2011. and the beads will be shipped very shortly thereafter.


Ok, ready?

Should it be . . .

Beads #1? (Set of 10 beads, Size: 13 x 9 mm) Vintage Lucite ovals in fuchsia with a delicate trace of white marbling and a subtle sheen on their surface – so pretty!


Beads #2? (Set of 10 beads, Size: 12mm in diameter) These very cool little Vintage Lucite beads are an “antiqued” silver color, with a pretty “beaded” border. The beads are slightly tranlucent so they have have a soft inner glow when the light hits them.


Beads #3? (Set of 10 beads, Size: 10mm) Fab Vintage Lucite Beads in a yummy shade of turquoise aqua with an iridescent aurora borealis finish! Elegant ribbed texture and a geometric shape.

It isn’t necessary to use all ten beads in your design – whatever you decide will be perfect!

And even if you don’t want to enter the challenge, you can vote for which beads we’ll use. 🙂

It should be fun to see how things turn out!
