Nunn Design Fall Collection Giveaway

November 19th, 2012 · 29 Comments

This contest is now closed. Thanks to everyone who participated. Be sure to ‘like’ Artbeads.com on Facebook to hear about other exclusive giveaway opportunities.

There’s no better time to be inspired by nature than in autumn. The color-changing leaves, the crisp mornings soothed by afternoon sun, and the familiar smells like pumpkin spice and burning embers. For our latest giveaway, we want you to channel all of your senses and share an ode to the season. The new fall collection from Nunn Design is full of elegance and romance, so we thought this would be an amazing opportunity to give one lucky winner a special prize. Inside this collection are sweet simplicities like floral bead caps and honeybee embellishments among others, all with the intent of helping you make a lasting memory in your designs.

Nunn Design helps you tell a story through every detail, like we did in our Opportunity pendant idea. This design beautifully portrays a powerful message of hope and aspiration through an allegorical bird and cage design. The quality of Nunn Design jewelry components is what makes this new line so special. Their signature heirloom style is captured in these new pieces, leaving you with jewelry of unquestionable style.

    Leaves fall to the ground
    The air gets a little bit chill
    Penguin blanket warm

    I love the locket! What a cute idea. I think that Nunn findings are of really good quality and make great looking jewelry. They are my go-to for charms and accent pieces.

    Festival
    Sky is gray
    But the festival of gold
    Is everywhere
    Translucent leaves
    Make bright the day
    Sharing it with
    Reds, oranges and chartreuses
    They Stand out
    Against the black tree trunks
    In a dizzying carnival of color
    I stand in awe
    My heart lifted
    In festive joy!

    Wispy gray into blue
    Soft rustle, then crispy red and yellow
    The smell of earth, richness
    Shuffling feet along the path
    Stirring up memories of burning pine needles and grass
    And then, the stillness
    Another Autumn past

  • 6 Amy Zaremba // Nov 19, 2012 at 6:36 pm

    Bright orange, red and yellow all falling to the ground.
    Where else can such beautiful splendor be found?
    Cool crisp fall days. Harvest moons that amaze.
    Preparations made for the winter to come, but not until each tree is undone.

  • 7 Heather // Nov 19, 2012 at 7:05 pm

    the chill in the air
    ensures the rich autumn colors are here
    in all their glory
    to brighten our day
    all the while whispering
    to make sure we know
    with their own special words
    the darkness of winter is not far way…

  • 8 Angela Mullis // Nov 20, 2012 at 5:06 am

    The chill in the wind
    Beautiful rainbow display in the trees
    Warm sweaters
    Hot chocolate
    Warm hugs
    FALL!

  • 9 Lyndsey // Nov 20, 2012 at 5:25 am

    pretty red and gold
    scraping frost from the windshield
    shoveling soon comes

  • 10 Renee Goodwin // Nov 21, 2012 at 3:48 am

    Temperatures cool.
    Trees don their fancy dresses.
    Fall is here at last!

  • 11 M. Turner // Nov 21, 2012 at 12:25 pm

    My haiku:

    Here in Florida
    Means no Autumn falling leaves
    Will use beads instead!

  • 12 Jacqueline Marchant // Nov 21, 2012 at 12:35 pm

    Crisp mountain air
    waters streaming down the hills waiting for the long winter chills
    Red, golds, browns and yellow
    new fires in the fireplace for toasting marshmellows
    squirrels scampering in a hasty search
    bears looking for that special place to lay
    meetings and greetings at the local festivals
    turkey , stuffing, deviled eggs….
    ham , cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie
    fields overflowing with the bounty of mans labors
    all the old movies we’ve watched for years at this time
    with popcorn and a glass of red wine
    for the kiddies a soda or chocolate milk
    a feather pillow and a thick warm quilt
    fuzzy slippers , flannel pajamas and a long furry robe
    fall is a time to slow and reflect on good times of old and new times to come
    let it snow let it snow let it snow
    and off to grandma’s house we go

    Golden autumn tones
    Creativity begins
    Lovely jewelry

    Twas the night before Thanksgiving, and all through the house
    Not a baker was baking, not even my spouse.
    The pie crusts were empty, the cookie dough raw,
    the oven resembled a dark, gaping maw.

    The children were nestled, all snug in their beds
    while visions of feasting danced all through their heads.
    My husband still dressed, and I in my sweats,
    were both hard at work, we’d be getting no rest.

    The emails poured in, new orders abound
    Not a spare moment for cooking was found.
    Surrounded by beads, and cute Nunn Designs,
    we had jewelry to make, and so little time!

    Black Friday was looming, Cyber Monday not far,
    followed by a big ol’ church craft bazaar.
    Pearls to be strung, and beads to be stitched,
    in our Thanksgiving plans, there was a hitch.

    The turkey was frozen, the potatoes un-mashed,
    but my hands were busy with filigree brass.
    Pendants, and rings, and bracelets galore,
    earrings, and necklaces, pins, and still more.

    With so much to do, and no end in sight,
    I knew we were in for a long long fall night.
    Components and beads, needles and thread,
    snippets of patterns all covered my bed.

    I thought of my children, my in laws as well,
    I knew how no feast would go over, not swell!
    But I looked at my beads, and my pile of orders,
    and tucked thoughts of food in my mind’s darkest corner.

    There would plenty of time for feasting and such,
    I hoped they’d be patient, I wasn’t asking much.
    I grinned to myself and thought “Hurrah!”
    I’d serve a feast after the cold winter’d thawed.

    Happy Holiday’s from Little Hill Jewelry :)

    Colors swirling down
    Leaves dancing in the sunlight
    Frolic, play away.

  • 16 mary ann krutsinger // Nov 22, 2012 at 12:49 am

    leaves are changing from green to red gold and orange
    temps are changing from hot to cold
    sweaters and long pants tell us that winter is near
    but until the snow and ice arrive
    there are festivals and football games
    with friends to enjoy
    holidays of ghosts and goblins
    turkey and thanksgiving
    memories of soliders both with us and gone
    to honor and remember
    before winter is truly here

  • 17 Anastasiya Klimanova // Nov 22, 2012 at 2:47 am

    Fall is the beauty we see in ourselves every day.
    Colors changing, ever loving, always evolving.

  • 20 Helen Carillo // Nov 23, 2012 at 7:35 pm

    One last breath before the cold
    When natures green has turned to gold
    When days are short and branches bare
    Before winters kiss has chilled the air
    All the raked up autumn memories that I cling to in my heart
    That the icy songs of winter are sure to pull apart
    One last bit of warmth before the snow, one last sunny sky so blue
    One last ray upon my cheek, before the world begins anew.

  • 21 nancy gouveia // Nov 24, 2012 at 5:59 am

    Autumn has come,
    colder nights,
    stronger sun.
    Leaves aburst in a fiery show,
    soon to depart when the strong winds blow.
    All too soon, we’ll look outside,
    snow will be falling from the sky!

  • 22 Susan MacWilliams // Nov 25, 2012 at 9:14 am

    I love the bee. I would love to make a hive for it and hang both on a spiral rope.

  • 23 Jamie Svehla // Nov 25, 2012 at 9:35 am

    Falls a ball
    when theres crunchy leaves to jump in,
    lots of cider to be drinkin’ and
    your favorite football teams a winnin’!

  • 24 Tammy // Nov 25, 2012 at 9:35 am

    I would very much like to work with your products! they would compliment any jewelry designers work beautifully!

  • 25 Betty Winslow // Nov 25, 2012 at 9:37 am

    The leaves falling down
    turn the ground into a quilt
    of gold, pink, and orange.

  • 26 Stacey C. // Nov 25, 2012 at 9:40 am

    Overnight
    the trees explode
    red, gold, orange, purple.
    Overnight
    my little boys
    morph into Star Wars characters
    tell spooky stories
    and beg strangers for candy.
    Overnight
    the storms are down
    and the heat is up.
    Overnight
    the squirrels gain Rubenesque proportions
    while sparrows and chickadees flood the feeders
    Overnight
    it is autumn.

  • 27 Brenda Shreves // Nov 25, 2012 at 11:11 am

    Red, orange, and gold never gets old.
    Cool, crisp, and dry; leaves flutter by.
    Short days, long nights, just don’t seem right!

  • 28 Angela Heaton // Nov 25, 2012 at 11:21 am

    When it’s dark and the leaves are falling. I sit and listen to the birds calling. Where have the long summer days gone.? I think I’ll put my sweater on!

  • 29 lori schneider // Nov 25, 2012 at 4:47 pm

    falling leaves
    mark the season
    chill in the air
    frost on the ground
    time to huddle inside
    and bead, bead, bead
