Special seed bead giveaway!


My friend Ekaterina at The Best Beads has done it again!  She is an expert in Czech glass, and has graciously provided a very special treasure for a lucky winner...four bags of seed beads at 50 grams each!  Three bags of seed beads are from Preciosa Ornela, and are 2mm silver lined rocailles. The last bag of seed beads is a rare find made Jablonex, which hasn't even existed for almost three years.  Ekaterina was lucky to find remainders of their stock in Jablonec!

In addition, Ekaterina has a very special surprise gift for the winner, but I'm not allowed to tell you what it is. You'll like it though!  ;-)

Traditional Czech Beads


GIVEAWAY ALERT!!!

Would you like to win these seed beads?  Here's what you need to do...please read this carefully.  Leave me a comment here telling me your favorite seed bead technique, and include your email address.  If I don't see your email address, I won't be able to contact you.  No contact, no win, and I simply have to go on to the next person.  You are welcome to spell it out if you'd prefer, for example, cyndi at mazeltovjewelry dot com.  If you tweet or post on Facebook or other social spots about the contest, you can leave a second comment and be entered twice! Deadline: June 25, 2013

Hi,
I have to say that my favourite bead stitch is also peyote, I love the texture of it.
Thank you for the opportunity to win this.

Peyote for sure! I was always under impression I could never learn this stitch...but it was actually easy to learn! I've now even accomplished both odd and even peyote! Yea!!!

KayzKreationz said...

I don't really have a favorite seed bead technique as I don't do much seed beading. But I've been reading several reviews on books about seed beading and am getting the urge to get a book and learn some seed beading, so I'd love to win these. The peyote stitch looks very nice, but I'm sure I'll need to start simpler. :)

Oh my! What a great give away! I am not a "seed beader", but I have dabbled. It's not a "stitch" but I made some beaded fringe that was pretty cool!

I have never met a seed bead stitch that I didn't love... but the stars of my moment are cross-weaving, netting and Saraguro leaf (a modified brick stitch), to narrow it down lol!

As a relatively beginner to beading I would say peyote is one of my favourite stitches due to the variety of ways you can use the stitch.

I love working in peyote. I adapt other patterns so I am able to do them in peyote.

rwrw@comcast.net said...

You are always SO generous - thank you in advance - I hope I win. My favorite beading technique is bead embroidery, which allows me to be as creative as my heart desires.

Cheryl Hill said...

I love peyote stitch the best!!! It is by far so fun and easy to do!!! Thank you for the chance to be in the contest!!!!

julie19571@yahoo.com said...

I have been using seed beads with Kumihimo. I love the luxurious look I get with the seed beads. I can do the same pattern and change color of beads and get a completely different look. This adds to the fun, you never know what you will come up with. I like the daintiness of seed beads over larger beads.

Sandy Woerner said...

To name which stitch is my favorite is difficult since I love doing them all. I guess since I have to pick, it's a toss between RAW and Peyote. I love how the beads nestle together and adds that extra touch to each item.

I would say that right angle weave is my favourite but I have not tried all the variety of beading designs available. The choice is endless. Great giveaway.

Hello fellow beaders,
I use seed beeds a lot but not for typical beading. I put them into the mini bottles with corks. To make "it's a girl charm", I use the pink and add girlish charms. "its a boy" I use blue and boy charms, for gardening I use green and gardening charms, for love I use red and heart charms and so on. The seed beads are perfect for this craft. I glue the cork on so the beads do not fall out and I add an eye screw to the top.
HAPPY BEADING

What a lovely prize, I love preciosa seed beads. I think my favourite would have to be St. Petersberg. It's delicate, and looks really difficult, but once I'd tried it once, I just fell in love with how easy it is to get a great finished piece.

Cheryl S said...

I just taught myself seed beading and I used the peyote stitch! I have 7 grandkids aged 15-2 years and they all love the texture and weight of the small sampler piece I made. I would say for now that Peyote is my favorite stitch!

At the moment, my favorite stitch is the braid stitch, from bead embroidery techniques. I have just started learning to embroider and it is fascinating with such potential. Besides, I just love playing with color.

Mostly I have done bead stringing although I have done some loom weaving, but I have seen some of the other techniques and want to do beading on a background
