Boho Jewelry – Beading Contest
May is all about boho style jewelry here at Beadaholique, so the perfect theme for our next contest is—you guessed it—boho jewelry! This earthy free-flowing style is characterized by organic textures, intricate patterns, natural materials, and lots of layers. Think gemstones, wood and clay beads, tassels, fringes, insects, birds, and more.
To enter the contest, submit your own original design showcasing the boho aesthetic. If you’re not 100% sure what this means or need some inspiration, visit the Beadaholique Boho Style Boutique for product recommendations and design ideas. Be sure to send us a clear, well-lit photo of your finished piece by 4PM PT Tuesday, June 9th. Finalists will be chosen and posted on our Facebook for public voting starting Wednesday, June 10th through the 17th. Finalists will also be featured in the next issue of The Beading Wire going out Thursday, June 11th.
Two winners, one domestic and one international, will each receive a $100 Beadaholique gift certificate and further exposure on our blog, website and in another issue of The Beading Wire. An Editor’s Pick chosen from the remaining finalists will receive a $50 gift certificate.
