I love the abacus bracelet! It reminds me of some wire crochet bracelets I have done, but the beads are bigger and more lucious!

I love the Friendship bracelet. My daughter has been into making bracelets with embroidery floss lately and this would step it up a notch or two. I have the perfect set of Soft Flex trios for her to try it out on (but we might have to adjust for her size) that has her favorite color of orange in it!

Thanks for sharing these great giveaways Sara! I have always wanted to get one of those hole punches!

Enjoy the holiday weekend!

I love the Wire Wrap Wrist Cuff! I am on a mission to use up all the beads I have stored away and this would really help that cause! A number of the earrings and necklace designs would help, too. LOL!

I love the Pearl Party earrings. They are elegant and classy. They look great with a wedding theme or just a night out on the town.

Andrew Thornton said...

I'm really digging the Evergreen Necklace. Mainly because it incorporates techniques that I don't currently use. I love the idea that this really pushes my creativity and challenges me to take on a new way of doing things. Awesome!

The Double Drop earrings are my favorite. Quick, easy, versatile and uses up smaller pieces of Soft Flex. I follow on FB.

Adree1 said...

I like the Double Drop earrings. Quick, simple, versatile and economical- using up those odd length pieces of Soft Flex.

Jane said...

I like the Waste Not Want Not Bracelet. It is simple, fun and the color combinations with the Trios Wire Sets are perfect. I can make bracelets for all occasions without breaking the bank.

So glad to find your blog. My daughter is just beginning to bead and has done some fabulous work so far. Her current tools were the cheapest we could find and she would love to win these new fabulous tools. Since she's under 13, she can't comment. So I'm providing the identity and she's providing the comments. :)
-------
My faves are the Leaves and Berries; UFOs in Paris, and the Trios knotted.

I'm a young beader (under 13) trying to start up a business and these look like some semi easy projects that would give some more of the experiance that I really need.

Thanks so much!

Have a fun holiday.

I love the Pearls and Peridot earrings!

Maria said...

I love the Sun Catcher, designed by: Virginia Barrera. My friend use to make these, but she always just did a line of beads hanging down, I love adding the sculpted wire to give it another dimension.

My favorite project is the loopy earrings.

maneki said...

Here's to hoping I'm not too late! My computer didn't want me to enter yesterday and I thought it was too late. Perhaps it is, but I'll comment anyway just in case.

My fave -- among many -- is probably Trios Woven Bracelets. Like the way the beading wire is used visibly and not just for strining. It's colourful and feels like a variation on chainmail (and makes me think of Susan Thomas' rubber o-ring maille in her book Link It!). Mixed Metals bracelet is also lovely in all its simplicity.

DIAS Jewelry said...

OMG so wonderful Giveaway!!!! Please count me in, I'm your follower for long time already. And this punch is really what I NEED!!!! Hope this time I got my luck, fingers crossed!

LOVE- Turquoise and Silver Necklace
Designed by: Jessica L. Rosenfeld!
Simple design yet elegant! Reposted on FB & Google! There are so many things I can do with the punch & the chain has endless possibilities!! I am a new beader so the punch would be a great addition to my limited tool chest!! Oh, the items I could make for my rescue horses would be awesome!!

Liz Stewart / Lush Beads said...

I really like the CZ chain earrings - very dramatic! And I am intrigued by the Evergreen Necklace.

I reposted on Twitter as well as on my Lush Beads Facebook page.

Wendyleeb3 said...

I love the simply stunning bracelet, and the bracelet set, they are simple yet elegant at the same time. I am a newbie beader, I have been making beaded earrings using seed beads and teaching myself out of a a book that I found at a flea market. I am hooked. I am a follower and have posted on facebook and twitter.

Audrey said...

I loved the Crystal Sophistication necklace. It looks vintage and would be gorgeous with a little black dress. Love the wire trios also! Just discovered this blog, but would love to win the metal punch because I'm always interested in learning new techniques that I can incorporate into my designs.

I liked you on facebook and re-tweeted. Thank you!
Thanks!

I am a follower of the blog and on facebook. I lover the amithist (sorry my spelling is terrible) ring necklace because it is made with semi precious stones, which I love, and the rings add an extra dimension and movement to lift the whole design.
