Announcing the Magnificent Marsala Contest Winners

We are excited to announce the winners of our Magnificent Marsala beading contest! A big congratulations to our domestic winner, Vanessa Suen, and our international winner, Mariya Nikolaeva Tsarkova.

Vanessa Suen Domestic Winner

Vanessa won a $100 Beadaholique gift card for her dazzling entry, The Burgundy Necklace. We love her intricate beadwork and color palette that brings out marsala’s sumptuous tones.

Mariya Nikolaeva Tsarkova International Winner

Mariya also won a $100 Beadaholique gift card for her piece, Red Red Wine. Her use of antique brass-toned wire complements a large mookaite gemstone beautifully.

Dora Oresic Editor's Pick

Finally, we extend a warm congratulations to Dora Oresic, whose gorgeous, floral-themed entry is our Editor’s Pick. Dora won a $50 Beadaholique gift card for this lovely bracelet that features bead crochet ropes, polymer clay bead caps, a TierraCast watch toggle clasp and a focal piece made with a brass bezel and polymer clay flowers.

We were so impressed with all of the entries. Keep an eye out for next month’s contest!

Revealing our Secret Santa…

Thank you all for participating in our 12 Giveaways; it’s been such a fun ride. Congratulations again to our winner, Susan C. for winning our Secret Santa giveaway. We know you’ve all been wondering what the secret hidden prize was… and now it’s time for the big reveal!

Mosaic #6

We scoured our design space and chose our favorites to give away to one lucky winner.  Susan has won a collection of TierraCast rivets, sliders and clasps.  And of course we included some faux leather and cork cord to complete her new designs.  We also couldn’t resist giving away stamping blanks, metals punches and a hammer.  But that’s not all! We’ve added various items like Czech glass Dagger beads, seed beads and tons of Beadelle beads.  One of my favorite parts about this prize is the inspirational book featuring artists who create beautifully unique things with beads.  With this prize valued at over $400, Susan is one lucky lady.
