Craft Challenge #71 - Just Bead It - Entries Due Feb 1 - Feb 8

Winner Announced!!

The winner of this month's challenge is... CraftyMamaBee!


Check out her absolutely amazing entry titled "Midnight In The Garden" here!  We've also featured CraftyMamaBee and her entry in the Craftster Blog! Smiley



02/01/12 -- It's time to enter!

To post your entry, please click NEW TOPIC on this board! Smiley  
Entries must be posted by Feb 8 11:59:59 PDT 2012.

If you are a new member, and cannot post images yet, please just post a direct link to your image(s) in your post.  A friendly neighborhood Moderator will come along and update your post to embed the image(s) for you.




MmMmm...beads, glorious beads!  This month, we're focusing on our love of beads -- all shapes, sizes, colors and materials.  Your challenge this month is to create a project featuring beads.

You can use beads from your stash, purchase new or vintage beads or even create your very own handmade beads.  If it's a bead, it's welcome in this challenge.  You can apply your beads to your project in any method you choose (sew, resin, glue, melt, etc.).  The bead(s) should be the obvious focal point of your project.

What to create?  Maybe some of these Craftsters will inspire you!

Beaded loom bracelet by beadizzygrl
Paper bead cuff by gigiz
Starry Night in beads by... me Cheesy
Nintendo Perler bead set by artoo1121

Rules:

  • Craft your project during this challenge period (Jan 3 2012 - Feb 8 2012) only.  Projects created before this timeframe will be moved from the Challenge Entries board and excluded from the voting poll.
  • On Feb 1 2012, there will be a special board created for entries.  Post your entry on the specified entry board during the period of Feb 1 - Feb 8 11:59:59 PDT 2012.  No sooner.  No later.
  • Voting will happen from Feb 9 - Feb 16 2012.
  • Enter only ONE project.  Your entry can have multiple components to it.
  • If cheating of any sort is detected, the applicable entry and votes will be disqualified.

Originality:

It's probably impossible to know whether your project is 100% original, has never been posted on Craftster, or made by anyone else in the past.  But if your project was definitely inspired by something you've seen before, please give credit to that project. Smiley

Prizes:

At the end, I'll set up a poll right here and the first place winner (US or non-US) will get:

(1) their project in the Featured Projects area
(2) their project in the Craftster Blog
(3) and a prize from us at Craftster.org -- any one item from one of Craftster's online shops!

I just recently got into beading. I've only done simple projects but this might be a good excuse to try to advance my skills!

Oh yeah, paper beads are a good idea! I've been wanting to try those.

Are melting beads the same as perler beads?

I think all Perler beads are melting beads, but not all melting beads are Perler beads.

Beads are such a great addition to mosaics. They can add color, focal points or even trim out the edges.

Beads are the universal craft supply! Smiley

 This is going to be an awesome challenge! But I'm already intimidated by the talent here! I have a HUGE bead stash, but so many other projects going on.
  Maybe I'll come up with something before the deadline???

I'm starting to think this might be the motivation I need to start (and finish!) a wedding gift I have in mind...  They only got married in November, so I'm not too late, right?

Better late than never!  They'll be considered Newlyweds for a year!

Hi Sarahsmommy! I don't think there's a time period limitation to joining a challenge, as there are for swaps. There is however a requirement of 15 posts before you can post photos, so I suggest you hang around in the boards and start making comments on people's projects. Since we still have 2 weeks before the challenge projects are going to appear, you have plenty of time for that! When the challenge is opened up for entries, there will be a specific board set up for the entry posts, there will most likely be a link found on the first post of this thread. But, you can always write a personal message to the person hosting the thread!
  Welcome, and Happy Beading!

Saw this yesterday for the first time and got my beads out tonight! I have my drawn out design done and if I can keep it as I see it in my mind.... I will blow myself away!! Let's hope I can finish it on time and have it be as I am envisioning it!!! So super excited! I've been doing so much sewing lately I am so happy to be bead inspired again! Grin

Are we allowed to enter something if we've already posted it in another topic. I just made a necklace that would fit perfectly in this category but have posted it for my 50 Projects list.  Can I still enter it here?
