Strung Out: Beadaholique Beading Contest: Falling Leaves

My Bead Soup Partner Julie Bean let me know that her store, Beadaholique,  is holding their first contest.  I tried to copy over the informational page but was not able to transfer more than the first line.  Then a notice appeared that blogger no longer was supported by my internet browser, and to try Chrome.  What the heck! I am not comfortable with Chrome, it took me 10 minutes just  to figure out how to find my blog with Chrome and still haven't been able to favorite it so I can return easily. I just doesn't seem to be very "user friendly" to me... But here I am, using Chrome for my post for the first time.

But I digress, the purpose of this entry is to talk about Beadaholique's contest.  Here are the pertinent details.  I hope that the links copied over OK.

We are very excited to announce the first ever Beadaholique beading contest! Enter a photo of your original jewelry design for a chance to win a $50 Beadaholique Gift Certificate and lots of exposure on our blog and Facebook page. The theme is "Falling Leaves" and you can interpret that however you like, let your creativity and inspiration flow! Just make sure to use at least 1 item from Beadaholique and follow the contest rules

From all the entries we will narrow it down to 10 finalists, all of whom will have their entry pieces published on the Beadaholique blog and Facebook page. There will then be public voting to decide the winner. 

We can't wait to see all what everyone comes up with! 

Here are some important dates to keep in mind: 
  • Wednesday, October 26 4 PM PDT: Last day to submit
  • Friday, October 28 @ 1 PM PDT: Top 10 will be posted on our Facebook and notified via email
  • Tuesday, November 1 @ 4 PM PDT: Public voting closes
  • Thursday, November 3: Winner is announced in the next issue of The Beading Wire and notified via email.

Happy Beading!


  1. I saw their contest, but the deadlines were just too tight for me, since I don't have any of their components right now. I'll look forward to seeing the results!

  2. If you have a English language website/blog about jewellery/accesories you can make free self-advertising here

    thanks :)
