Beaders Challenge – Tranquil Waters

Posted on by



This is going to be fun! It is a way to challenge yourself with a pre-selected set of components. We are excited to see what you come up with from this kit inspired by the sea. To participate you must purchase a Design Kit ($24) from The LH Bead Gallery which is filled with Czech, beach glass, metal starfish, metal beads, chain, seed beads, and a beautifully etched focal piece.



Bead Gallery Gift Certificates:

1st  place – $ 200

2nd place – $ 100

3rd place $ 50


Entries accepted through June 26, 2012. All entries will be displayed anonymously at The LH Bead Gallery and online at, as well as on our Facebook page. Votes will be collected (only in the store) until July 21, 2012 and the winner will be announced Tuesday, July 24, 2012.


All work must be original design.

Each entry must include the etched focal piece and some of the chain. All varieties of beads included in the design kit MUST be used. The quantity of beads used can fit your design.

You may only add your own clasp, stringing material, or artistic wire. That is it. No additional beads are allowed in this challenge, just what is in the kit.

One entry per person

Out of town entries must pay a (to & from) shipping of $10 to send the kit to you and return your piece after the contest ends.

All contest entries must be picked up within a month after the contest ends or the item will be donated.
