Easter Project Hunt Kickoff: Win a Free Scoop of Swarovski!

Swarovski Easter Giveaway 1

Easter is coming next weekend, and in the spirit of the holiday, we’re bringing back a Beadaholique tradition: the Easter project hunt! We all love the fun of searching for Easter eggs and the thrill of finding one, so we’re recreating that experience on our site for you every day next week, leading up to Easter Sunday. You’ll have five chances to win a scoop of Swarovski crystal goodies!

Here’s how it works: Starting on Monday at 8am PST, we will post one image per day on our blog, showing a teaser of one of our inspiration projects from our site. It’s up to you to go visit our beading projects page and figure out which project the image is from. Once you’ve identified the project shown, leave a comment on that blog post with the name of the project and a link back to the project. The first person to leave a comment with the correct answer will win a goodie bag containing over $25 worth of Swarovski crystal!

Here is an example of the type of image we will post — simply identify the project in the egg (Note: this is an example hunt, and no prize will be awarded for identifying this project):

12 Giveaways 2015

It’s nearly Valentine’s Day, and we at Beadaholique would like to celebrate by doing something a little different. Just two months ago, we were right in the middle of our annual 12 Giveaways of Christmas, in which we sent out 12 beautiful gift bundles throughout December to 12 randomly selected winners. These lucky crafters received packages brimming with beads, supplies, tools and other goodies. Well, now that two months have gone by, we wanted to check back with our winners and see what kinds of creations they have been inspired to make. Enjoy the profiles below, and thank you for being our customers and fans. Happy Valentine’s Day — we love you!

Judy's Ricks Loomed BraceletName: Judy A. from Texas

Giveaway: #8, Ricks Beading Loom, seed beads, needles and findings

Tell us about yourself: From Camp Fire Girls (Wohelo!), to love beads, to making my own jewelry, it seems I’ve always played with beads. Now, as I find myself close to retirement, I’m drawn to more intricate projects. I’ve only had the time to complete one small project with the Ricks Beading Loom but I’m in love with it already! Warping it was a breeze and the ease with which I could remove the bracelet, with just two threads to weave in, makes me want to do more. And now I have this wealth of 11/0 Delicas (yum!) and findings to play with! I highly recommend Beadaholique’s instructive video to anyone who is using the Ricks loom for the first time. Thank you, Beadaholique!

Is there somewhere people can see/purchase your work? I just make things for myself, and my friends and family. I’ve not progressed to blogging yet.

Merja's Jewelry SetName: Merja P. from Finland

Giveaway: #10, Czech glass beads

Tell us about yourself: I have always been fascinated by all kinds of handicraft and as long as I can remember I knew how to crochet and knit, thanks to my mother. Some 10 years ago I got more interested in beads as I was combining tiny seed beads with bobbin lace. Then, a couple of years ago, I began to search the web about different kinds of jewelry making techniques; the fact that I realized I can (learn to) make myself jewelry was so exciting that now it has almost totally displaced my other hobbies. I just love Czech two-hole beads as they truly are so versatile. I am still stunned to be one of the winners but eager to get to work with the incredible stash. There were so many bead styles that I hadn’t used before, e.g. the tango beads, that I spend a lot of time going through patterns to get to know the technique for a specific style. One of my projects to include the items from the giveaway was to match the fabric of my blouse in the photo; I chose the tango beads in black, teal and rose. The bracelet was made according to the City of Carthage Bracelet by Kat Silvia.

Is there somewhere people can see/purchase your work? The jewelry I have made so far was for myself or for friends and family, a few I was asked to make as a gift. However, in the future I might start a business of my own; but first I need to expand and develop my skills in jewelry making – and have fun in doing so!

Orsika's NecklaceName: Orsika H. from Hungary

Giveaway: #12, Swarovski crystal beads, fancy stones, pearls

Tell us about yourself: I live with my twins and my husband in Hungary. Beading and jewelry making is one of my favorite hobbies. I decided to learn as much as I can about jewelry making, when some years ago I saw a really, really beautiful beaded jewelry piece in a Hungarian craft magazine. I’ve learned techniques on my own from books, blogs and jewelry making videos. But there are so many things (e.g. how to make different shapes with CRAW [cubic right angle weave] or how to bead crochet) that I have to and I want to learn. My giveaway was amazing. I love all the pieces I got.

Is there somewhere people can see/purchase your work? My works can be seen here.
