Okay… so this is sort of self-serving, but I actually am involved with the
contest that I am announcing this week. Sorry about that, but I have to say
that the prizes are pretty good.

Kind of long… I just put all the rules in here.

Good River Gallery and 1 Stop Bead Shop have teamed up for a Beading Contest!

We always love seeing what our customers are using our supplies to make. Our
challenge to you is to use 25% or more of the beads we send you. You may add
beads to this kit as well. Multiple entries are fine, but you must buy a kit FOR
EACH ENTRY. Any technique (wirewrapping, stringing, beadweaving) is accepted.
Further, you are not just limited to jewelry! Sculpture, housewares, whatever
you can come up with so long as it uses our beads.

Kits include lampworked beads, crystals, tierracast spacers, and seed beads.
Please choose your color – we have more than one colorway available. The kit is
available for sale at $35.00 each starting NOW. A copy of the full rules is
included in each kit (these are the full rules).

HOW TO ENTER Email a clear jpeg at least 5″ x 5″ at 300 dpi, to:
Goodrivergallery@…. Put “1Stop/GoodRiver contest” in the subject line. Do
not send us actual pieces, they will not be considered. Include in the email:
name, address, email address, phone number, title of piece, list of materials,
