Bead Giveaway

Lampwork Glass Beads

Time for a prize draw, methinks!

Up for grabs this time is a bunch of my Lonelies.  There are twenty seven beads here - thirteen decorated ones and fourteen spacers.  The beads range from 9mm to 13mm diameter.
Lampwork Glass Beads
My 'Lonelies' are experiments, one-offs and leftovers from sets. All of the beads are first quality and I know a lot of you like to use them for pendants, charms, bookmarks, phone dangles and the like.

If you'd like to be in with a chance of winning these beads all you need to do is enter my prize draw. The rules of the giveaway are are as follows :

♦ The draw is open to anyone anywhere in the world.

♦ It's one entry per person BUT if you have a blog and/or Twitter account and you blog/tweet about and link to this prize draw post I will enter your name twice. Bonus! If you'd like to mention me in any tweets my Twitter ID is beadsbylaura.

♦ To enter the draw you need to leave a comment on this blog post or email me at prizedraw@beadsbylaura.co.uk

♦ If you've blogged/tweeted about this draw please say that you've done so in your comment or email and I will do the two name thing.

♦ If you're entering with a blog comment please leave a name of some kind, be it your actual one, a nickname or your blog user name - just something rather than an anonymous comment.  If you have a popular name please leave some kind of initials.  Last time I had lots of Lynnes and Sues enter and that got a bit confusing!  Something like 'Laura S' would be great.

♦ Entries need to be in by 7.00pm (UK time) on Saturday 18th September.

Phew!  I hope that all makes sense.

If you're new to my blog, hello and welcome!  I do bead giveaways both large and small on an almost monthly basis so please add yourself as a follower or subscribe to my blog using the links over on the right hand side - that way you won't miss out on any future free bead opportunities!

Good luck everybody!

What pretty beads!

Cazzphil said...

I start my day at the computer and hope that you have added one of your lovely, lively posts. Seeing your beads, photographed so well and in new and interesting colours, makes me itch to go up to my studio and produce something even half as nice. I see from your 20 questions that you are Virgo (nail scissors to the edge of the mown lawn), whereas I am Scorpio and go at things with gusto and rather less precision. You should see my jewellery! All over the shop. Never mind, I can do understated if I really, really, really try hard. It's just that I don't want to. Your gorgeous lonelies show possibilities and promise, skill and art, a daily kickstart to the creative flow.

MoonRae said...
