Current Contest
Kit Colors

 

Instead of selecting a theme, this time we are letting the colors talk to you.  Whatever you can make of it is up to you. 

The kit retails for over $26.00 but you can get this kit, if you are going to use it for this contest, for $9.95 (no further discounts).  Yes we will send it to out of town people too. 

There are a lot of seed beads in this kit so we are going to give you plenty of time to work on this project.  The projects will need to be handed in by Sept 9th.

We have most of these beads in stock and others on order if you will need more of anything.

The winners will receive a $25.00 Artistic Bead gift certificate.

 

So the rules are:

 

-You must use at least 75% of the beads in this kit and you must have at least 7 of the bead groups represented. (there are 11 groups total as shown above)

-The total project must be mostly glass beads.

-The total project may not be larger than 2' x 2' x 2'.

-You may add any other bead you wish to the project.

-The deadline for this project will be Sept 9th.

 

Some of the prize categories may be:

 

-Best non-jewelry project.

-Most unusual use of kit beads.

-Best use of kit colors.

-Most wearable jewelry project.

 

and there may be others...

 

Have fun and let your imaginations go!​
