    I’m super excited about this year’s trip to Tucson, and we expect to have lots of fun with the Goody Jar! We always find interesting beads and other items that are one-of-a-kind or in such small quantities that we couldn’t possibly put them on the Artbeads site. With the Goody Jar, at least now we can share some of our finds with our fans (with pictures) and with one lucky winner. And I almost forgot to mention that while we love seed beads, we will not be putting any of these tiny critters into the jar.

    I don’t know if this is true for all bead enthusiasts, but I personally have gotten really good at estimating quantities. If I need 32 beads, I can stick my hand into a container and pull out almost the exact number.

    I have a feeling that we’ll be seeing a lot of very close estimates!

    Good luck!

    I lived many years in New Mexico. Consequently I still love the Southwestern genre of beading supplies that come from that region. I would love to see what is offered the the goody jar. I am still homesick for the Southwest.

    Thanks for letting me enter!
    Penny S.

  • 58 Heraldene Clarke // Jan 31, 2012 at 6:40 am

    Going to the show sounds wonderful but it is a little too far. The count for the jar should be about 32. The gift certificate is the the icing to the cake. Can’t wait to see what fills the jar.

  • 59 linda // Jan 31, 2012 at 6:52 am

    I was truly amazed at the photos from the bead show, to think of all the beads and stones that were there.
    If I had to guess at how many are in the jar I would say it would have to be around 1658 items.
    Thanks for a chance to win.

  • 60 Amie S. // Jan 31, 2012 at 7:20 am

    I’m SOOOoooo excited! Winning the jar would be a beader’s dream come true!!

    My guess is 3,291

  • 62 Ruth Spiekerman // Jan 31, 2012 at 8:00 am

    What fun! Can always use more beads, never seem to have on hand what I need for doing a particular project. So that means a shopping trip or a order online. The jar would be great to add to my collection.
    Thanks for letting me try!

  • 63 Sarah Shumate // Jan 31, 2012 at 8:05 am

    I’d like to change my guess to 3,333

  • 64 Christina // Jan 31, 2012 at 8:06 am

  • 66 kathy kurke // Jan 31, 2012 at 8:14 am

    I have no idea what all you will include in the jar but if YOU like them, I know they will be fabulous! I am guessing 997 individual items (assuming you count every bead on a strand….).
    Have fun at the show! I wish I were there!

  • 67 Amy // Jan 31, 2012 at 8:16 am

    Wow… that is a HUGE jar. Hmmmmm… 1,972.

    Amy

  • 68 Ann timmins // Jan 31, 2012 at 8:21 am

    Golly, what a great opportunity to guess the contents of your jar. My number of beads “guess” is 2518. Odd shapes take up room but the size of your jar is an unknown factor. At any rate I really like your website and use it often. Ann

  • 69 Ann timmins // Jan 31, 2012 at 8:23 am

    What tantalizing idea. My guess for number of beads in your jar is 2518 beads.
    Really like Art Beads .com and use it often.
    My best, Ann Timmins

  • 70 Jennifer // Jan 31, 2012 at 8:25 am

    I’m on the same train of thought (strands of beads have individual beads). 314!

  • 71 LizaS // Jan 31, 2012 at 8:30 am

    I guess 272…….some lovely things I see there!

  • 72 Teresa Secord // Jan 31, 2012 at 8:49 am

    I LOVE Artbeads and order quite a bit from them! My guess is 150.

  • 73 Kathy Campbell // Jan 31, 2012 at 8:56 am

  • 74 laura h // Jan 31, 2012 at 9:02 am

    I love beads. I’m saying 1000..keeping my fingers cross..

  • 75 Molly Gochenour // Jan 31, 2012 at 9:02 am

    I hope some sunshine is included in the jar!

  • 76 Seema Muranjan // Jan 31, 2012 at 9:08 am

    My guess is 5382 beads…they look so beautiful!!

  • 77 Mara M // Jan 31, 2012 at 9:25 am

    I have been to the Tucson Show in the past and know that there are many beauties there waiting to be discovered. I can imagine what this jar will look like filled to the brim with all those finds! How fun to imagine how to use all of them! What lucky person will win — I can only hope that it will be me, but best wishes to whoever does win. Lots of fun in store for that beader.

  • 78 pat holman // Jan 31, 2012 at 9:39 am

    say–did I read it wrong? thought it said at the end of the show they would tell us how to enter and guesss the amount? did I miss something?

  • 79 Marissa // Jan 31, 2012 at 9:44 am

    No you are right, Pat! We will tell you how to enter when we get back from Arizona :)

  • 82 Kathleen Dixon // Jan 31, 2012 at 9:59 am

    Some years back I was a rep up in WA and worked the gift shows there as well as at one of the showrooms at the Seattle Gift Center. It`s fun to be a buyer and to see the new treasures your customers will love. It also means sturdy comfort shoes and vitamens. Enjoy! My guess is 149.

  • 83 Mary Ellen // Jan 31, 2012 at 10:02 am

    Have fun at the show.

  • 102 Julie gastelum // Jan 31, 2012 at 5:42 pm

    Just to be clear, if we win the Goody Jar, we also win the beads inside of it? hehe I had to ask. ^_^

  • 108 Shari Arbogast // Jan 31, 2012 at 7:24 pm

    Oh, also.. I don’t know if you can even answer this or not, but I was wondering if the Tierra Cast beads you showed yesterday were added to the jar yet. Yeah, I know it’s a long shot getting an answer, but I thought it wouldn’t hurt to ask.. ^_^ I know telling may give away a chance at a better guess.

  • 109 Beth Cook // Jan 31, 2012 at 8:09 pm

    This jar would be really cool to win since I’m pretty sure that there is no chance that I will be headed to Tucson in the near future–the stuff that you guys are collecting in this thing would be so much fun to just play with and see what sorts of new things are out there!

  • 110 Kate // Jan 31, 2012 at 8:52 pm

    My guess is 873. I would love to see some of the individual pieces as some look just amazing, especially the Buddha charm/stamping.

  • 320 Susan Lawson // Feb 7, 2012 at 11:51 am

    Sure is hard to guess because of the different sizes.

  • 321 Patricia Flood // Feb 7, 2012 at 11:57 am

    Hi, I have no idea how mant beads are in the jar. I used to do an Earth Science lab on permeability where we had tubes filled with the same size beads (s, m, lg) and one tube with a mixture od all three sizes. The kids poured water through the beada and timed how fast the water went thrugh each. One day one of the kids knocked over their mixed tube (minus H2O luckily) and we were finding those beads for months! I guesssed by birthday year! I was born the day sfter Christmas which as a kid had to feel like the most unlucky day on which to be born. I got Merry Christmas/Happt Birthday presents a lot. I always felt cheated that my 6 siblings had birthday parties, but I never did. I’m going to make my birthday a LUCKY number for once! I guess there are 1226 beads in the jar!

  • 322 Patricia Flood // Feb 7, 2012 at 12:01 pm

    OOPS! I just read my post and ouch…look at akk of those typos! I realized I made a mistake in my comment. I was going to use the year I was born, but changed to to the date I arrived in the world because I want it to be associated with something good! Thanks again. I was a great science teacher, but never a very good typist! LOL!

  • 323 Irene Pilgrim // Feb 7, 2012 at 12:13 pm

    But here goes. Let’s just have fun.

  • 337 Cara // Feb 7, 2012 at 2:59 pm

    I would really like to see someone count the items as they take them out of the jar.

  • 338 Cara // Feb 7, 2012 at 3:02 pm

    wouldn’t it be fun to watch someone count all those items as they come back out of the jar?

  • 339 Cara // Feb 7, 2012 at 3:04 pm

    The amount will probably leave us speechless.

    Have fun everyone.

    so cool !!!!

  • 354 Renee W. // Feb 7, 2012 at 4:42 pm

    Figuring out approximate volume of the jar was relatively easy. Estimating the number of beads per cubic inch was not. Definitely a fun contest. I’m just glad I’m not the one that has to count them.

  • 355 Christine Long // Feb 7, 2012 at 4:42 pm

    OMG, I would think I died and was in heaven if I won all those beads! Good luck everyone! Happy beading!

    I hope I’m not to late…….

  • 371 ukewench // Feb 7, 2012 at 7:40 pm

  • 377 Jane Marley // Feb 8, 2012 at 4:15 am

    Wow this is like the biggest ever mystery bag.You are given the mystery beads and have to make something using them. If I was given all these, I would make enough jewellery to fill my stall and make such a gorgeous display, I would photograph the stall and explain that it all came from a glass jar and display the jar too lol.
