Introducing our  “Beader’s Challenge”:


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 all come up with from this kit inspired by nature.
To participate, you must purchase a Design Kit ($24) from The LH Bead Gallery which is filled with Vintage Czech beads, metal beads, antique bird pendant, chain, Czech glass lentil beads and fire polished beads and seed beads in two colors.

*All work must be original design.
*Only 1 item may be made using the kit.
