One Crafty Contest: Round 1

Welcome to One Crafty Contest…
ROUND 1
This week’s challenge for our 20 contestants is to create something that in some way incorporates
BEADS.
CIRCUS MIX .. 100 Round Matte Glass Beads (1300)
Obviously, jewelry is an option, but there are lots of other creative possibilities too.  Anything is welcome; home decor, crafts for kids, you name it, as long as beads are involved it works!  Contestants can use any type of beads: glass, gemstone, plastic, resin, clay, metal, etc. and can incorporate whatever other types of materials into their project they want as well.

This round is sponsored by Arte Bella Surplus, a fabulous bead supply store on Etsy.

The top vote recipient for the bead round will receive a
$20 Shop Credit
which they can use for any items they like.  Here are a few of my favorite things from the shop:
RAZZLEBERRY .. Fire Polished Czech Pink Glass Beads (1798)
Razzleberry

SPRING WATERS .. Picasso Glass Czech Rondelle Beads (1982)
Spring Waters

LIME CHICLETS .. Premium Czech Glass Beads (2082)
Lime Chiclets

Check it out and see what your favorites are!

Contestants must submit a photo of their project to me via email by 8 AM EST on Monday.  Voting begins Monday evening, so be sure to come back and vote for your favorites.  You’ll see a photo of each project, but they will be anonymous until after the voting has closed.  The top 14 vote recipients will move on to the next round, as well as one project the judges vote to “save.”
Good luck!
