Hey Beader’s! It’s one of our favourite times when we look back at all the beautiful projects that you made throughout July. This month you all LOVED our free gifts including the beautiful glass pearl and findings kit as part of our One Millionth Order Celebration and with it you made some fabulous jewellery sets!
Thank you to everyone for sharing your projects – it’s always a pleasure to see your designs and share the inspiration with other fellow beaders. This month we held a Handmade by You mini prize draw! Everyone featured was put into the BD hat to win a free Swarovski Crystal Pen and the winner is…Sharon Brown Ne Baird – CONGRATULATIONS!!
