GIVEAWAY: 200 Beads

Quite unbelieveably, I just passed 200 transactions in my supply shop.  Seems like a good time for a supply type giveaway!

So--I will be giving away 200 beads.  Just leave a comment for one chance to enter.  Post a link (with a note about this giveaway) to this blog post on your own blog/facebook page for another entry (in such case, tell me in your post how many entries you have.)  

The beads will be a yet-to-be-determined mix of vintage, altered, polymer clay, etc. of the same types of beads I offer in my supply shop. I will be happy to cater the mix to the general color and material preferences of the winner.

I'd love a ton of entrants, so please share at will.  Anyone can enter--I'll ship worldwide.  No shipping fee.  I will do a drawing and pick a winner next week sometime.

----------------------------

I've got many, many things waiting in the wings.  Buttons....

 Steampunkish metal...
 Paired whites (almost kept those delicate, teeny frilled MOP ones)
 The last of my plastic knots...
 More buttons...love the hammerhead-looking modernist thing--I wonder if it's a brand/designer symbol for something?
I have about 4 more strands of the altered heishi coming up.  This one has a ton of white and looks really cool but I realized after taking the photos that I hadn't taken the final step of waxing and cleaning/detailing.  So now it is a little less white.  It's so weird how each strand turns out so differently when I process them the same.
 New earrings listed in my jewelry shop.
 A new bracelet, made with polymer clay beads--I've got a set of them to sell in my supply shop too.  Coming soon.
 These sold, but I wanted to show off the illustrated polymer beads.  Roses.  I'll be making and offering them soon.
 More earrings.  I may have already shown these?  But they've got some of the oxidized fire polish beads I'll be listing in my supply shop.
 So does this necklace--the bicones.  The fused glass pendant is from a sidewalk sale at Fall Hill Bead & Gem last year.  I love it because it looks like moon craters if you were wearing rose colored glasses.  And if you're always seeing moon craters, chances are you are a rose-colored-glasses type.
Some faded glamour.  That darker one--I want to crawl inside and have it teach me everything it knows.

    1. Note: Hat pins, unfortunately. I mean that's great for someone who wants hat pins. But I have never had luck altering them for jewelry... https://www.etsy.com/listing/128280777/vintage-hat-pins-5-rustic-glass-pearl?ref=shop_home_active

  14. Richelle, so sorry about your rat! What a bad winter it has been, healthwise, up here in the polar North.

    And I hope that all the re-organization is going well...

    I'm putting my daughter Rebecca's name in the bead hat...

    1. Oh, thank you Marly. Amos A. Rodent is my little baby. ("Amos A. Rodent" is what they typed on his little bottle of antibiotics, isn't that cute?) The polarness is a fright--it almost looked springy today, rainy-springy, but springy still. But I swear it is down to 11 degrees now.

      I'm putting your/Rebecca's name in twice since you have so many times twittered my shop and whatnot, totally unprovoked.

  15. Richelle,

    I am so sorry to hear about your pet rat, he was beautiful. Things are indeed in a weird transit right now, so many shifts and changes. I am glad that you are putting your shops on vacation, I have too while trying to refocus through this period. Thank you for putting together this giveaway, it is so generous of you to share your beads. The illustrated roses are just beautiful.. bead candy.
