A little after becoming a jewelry designer, I started to really immerse myself in the beading culture; I started to learn the lingo, get acquainted with the different materials and tools available to me, and of course reach out to fellow designers including books, magazines, and flesh-and-blood people.
This being said, EVERYBODY in the jewelry design and accessory world knows about the annual Bead and Button show. It has been a dream of mine to be able to go one year, but alas, it hasn't happened yet!
Instead, I have to live vicariously through others, and this year, that would be Lori of Pretty Things; also being our lovely and ever patient hostess of the 6th Bead Soup Blog Party.
She has a pretty incredible giveaway up and live on her blog which happened to be some of her spoils leftover from this year's Bead and Button show, along with several other pretty incredible prizes!
First Prize: Bits and Pieces from B&B 2012!
Second Prize: A Copy of Lori's upcoming book, Bead Soup Book
*To be received when the book comes out in September
Third Prize: A copy of Lori's eBook, Follow the Path: Ideas and Inspiration for the Creative Blogger
Fourth Prize: A Bead Soup Party Tote Bag!
*In your choice of pink, mocha or navy edges
Fifth Prize: A SURPRISE mystery soup created by Lori herself!
Now if that isn't one heck of a giveaway, I honestly couldn't tell you what was! Speaking of the BSBP, I haven't forgotten about my partner and her amazing soup she sent me last week; I'm in the process of that post so keep an eye out ;)
Oh, and of course if you want to enter this giveaway too, do so HERE.
