Giveaways and Promotions

As with any habit, the problem with bead addictions is the need to keep feeding it. So I have decided to try out a giveaway program on this blog where readers like you get a chance to win some free fantastic beads etc from participating beading supply stores. Beadaholicism is not something you want to recover from, right?

Most of us love giveaways (sweepstakes). Last month, there were long line-ups in Tokyo when the French jewelry store Maubossin gave away 0.1 carat diamonds worth about $50 each as a promotion. They also offered to make a ring or pendant for the diamond which will cost around $500! There will be no such catch with bead giveaways as you can make your own jewelry!

Here's what you have to do. Look out for giveaway posts - the first one will be real soon - and leave a comment which entitles you to one entry. At the end of a week, I will pick a winner using random.org. I'm just winging this as I go along so there is no set period when these giveaways will occur. Please subscribe so you don't miss a post!

If you are an online store owner and wish to participate or purchase ad space, please contact me for further information.
