While you've been waiting, we've been planning. (Notice there are 2 names in the headline of this entry?) We are holding the 2nd Bead Packet Design Challenge, and thanks to your feedback, there will be art beads included this time!
The featured artist is
of NKP Beads
(aka NKP Designs)!
Because we are increasing the number of participants to 10 and stepping up the quality of the beads to include art beads, there will be a charge this time. $8.50 + $2.50 shipping = $11 total for participants in the U.S. and Canada. (While I would like to include people from all countries, I'm concerned about packages reaching you in time. If packages normally reach you within 10 days coming from the U.S., you are welcome to play. The shipping will be approximately $6.)
Each packet will consist of 9 beads. This is a sample set:
Back row: In addition, there are 4 natural (Off-white) fossil beads (12mm) and 2 red howlite beads (12mm). Once we have determined who will be participating, the beads will be reserved for you in my online store. I will send you the link.
You do not have to have your own blog to participate. Anyone without a blog of their own is welcome to post here! Please let me know in advance to arrange.
I think that covers the main points. Please ask if you have questions! Leave your name and a message if you want to be a participant! (If you leave an email address, I will not post the message, but will just announce your name.)
Natalie has sweetened the event offering an extra bonus prize! You will, FOR SURE, want to go visit her blog, NKP DESIGNS - Beads, Pottery, and Whistles, right after leaving here to learn more! It sounded like such a good idea, I will be offering something similar.
I will also have a drawing for a $25 gift certificate to "Sharyl's Jewelry" from among all who asked to participate in this event.
My thanks to Natalie, and my thanks to all for your interest! Hope you are as excited as Natalie and I are! We are eager to get names drawn and to see your creations! --Sharyl
Application deadline is Friday, Sept 21st at 7pm Central time!
