With Thanksgiving on the horizon and Christmas also looming in the distance, it can only mean one thing. Winter is coming! And what better way to welcome the season of celebration than a fun beading contest based around a winter theme?
If there was ever a magical season that was designed to sparkle, it has to be this one. Snowflakes; icicles; wintery whites; glittery golds and whispery silvers – there’s just so much inspiration that can be drawn from winter.
For this contest, we’d like you to create something from beads based around a winter theme. What does winter mean to you? It can be jewelry related, accessories or beaded ornaments, something to do with Christmas – whatever you like as long as it contains beads and reflects our chosen theme.
In return for your entry into this contest, you’ll get the chance to win one of our amazing prizes! We’re giving away a voucher worth $200 to spend in the Golden Age Beads store as our main prize, followed by a second prize of a $100 voucher to use in store!
Vouchers are for use at goldenagebeads.com only and won’t be valid in our Etsy shop.
We’ll choose a maximum of 20 submissions for our main prize ($200 voucher) and we want you to choose the winner – we’ll be asking you to vote for your favorite submission. The winner of the second prize will be chosen at random, so that everyone who has entered the contest will have a chance to win.
Can’t wait to get started? We’re not surprised! We’ll quickly sum up the rules of entry and contest deadlines that you need to know about, so that you can start creating!
