Bead and Save's Lamp Work Beads Giveaway

By on Monday, July 27, 2009 59 Comments

Aren't these lampwork beads gorgeous? These beads are the very first giveaway prize. Just leave a comment - click on the word Comments at the bottom right of the post. If you are an email subscriber and having trouble, click on the post title first to return to the blog, then click on the word comments at the bottom.

Don't forget to tell your friends about the giveaway! (Click on the post title and then copy the URL at the top or use the Email/envelope icon at the bottom of the post).

The contest closes at midnight EST on Monday, August 3. I will pick a winner using random.org and announce it as soon as possible after that.

If you are shy about putting down your name publicly, pseudonames are okay too - yes, I am talking to you Crankypants! Do NOT put your email address in the comment body. If you do win, email me directly to claim your prize otherwise, I will have to pick another entry. The Giveaways link at the top of my blog homepage is where I will post all contest info and winner lists. Please consider subscribing (it's free) so you don't miss any result announcement or the next contest.

Today's prize was generously contributed by Bead and Save, an online store based in Montreal, Canada - they also have an ad on the right sidebar of my blog. Bead and Save is the growing concern of two sisters, Gail and Karen who started their store because "We adore everything about beads and decided after much thought to finally do what we love." They have a lovely range of beads at great prices for they really do want you to bead and save. Of special note are their lamp work beads and Pandora style collection which enables you to build a bracelet very easily. I know because I just bought some lampwork beads for my workshops!

Gail and Karen also have a great sense of humor which is evident in their newish blog. They described their blog "Love to Bead, love to bitch" as one which chronicles "how they came to have an online store and the trials and tribulations of trying to succeed in business during a recession"! The best of luck to them....and you!

    I love these beads and all the beads at "Bead and Save". I have to tell you that Karen and Gail are as wonderful as the beads! They have been friends of mine for a number of years. You should see their shop! When you are there, it is like being in a candy store - without the calories. If you could see the necklaces that they make with these beads, you would drool!

    Thanks Pearl for inspiring us to create!
