UNDER THE SEA – Beaders Challenge

Posted on by

Introducing our   “Beaders  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.  The kit is filled with lava starfish, lampwork octopus, anchor charm, jade, beach glass, shell chips, coral, seed beads, and Irish waxed linen.


*All work must be original design.

*Only 1 item may be made using the kit.

*All varieties of beads and materials included in the design kit MUST be used. The quantity of beads used can fit your design.

*You may only use your own clasp, flex wire and crimps.  No additional beads or materials are allowed in this challenge, just what is provided in the kit.

*One entry per person.

*Out of town entries must pay a (to & from) shipping fee 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.


Entries accepted through Saturday, August 31, 2013.  All entries will be displayed anonymously at The LH Bead Gallery and online at www.lhbeads.com, as well as on our Facebook page. Votes will be collected (only in the store) until September 17, 2013 and the winner will be announced the week of the 17th.
