Get your kit HERE:
We always love seeing what our customers are using our supplies to make. Our challenge to you is to use 25% or more of the beads we send you. You may add beads to this kit as well. Multiple entries are fine, but you must buy a kit FOR EACH ENTRY. Any technique (wirewrapping, stringing, beadweaving) is accepted. Further, you are not just limited to jewelry! Sculpture, housewares, whatever you can come up with so long as it uses our beads.
Kits include lampworked beads, crystals, tierracast spacers, and seed beads. Please choose your color - we have more than one colorway available. The kit is available for sale at $35.00 each starting NOW. A copy of the full rules is included in each kit.
