  1. W0wza! I would choose the puffed porcelain beads that are hand painted with sea motifs. Add some real sea shells, maybe some touches of organza material in a necklace set! Mom loves the sea as much as I do!!

  2. I love the mother’s day charms, I would make bracelets for gifts.

    I love the Ice blue Tree in Resin pendant as seen here: http://www.artbeads.com/ss-pend003.html . I would put this pendant on a broken zipper on my mom’s favorite jacket. That way she could use her jacket again and have a pretty reminder of how much i love her. I picked this one because the jacket is blue and Mom loves trees and nature items.

    I like the Stoneware Love Birds and Flowers Triangle Pendant. I would make a necklace with it and give it as a gift.

  3. Thank you so much for this special section! It definitely helps to make the best choices for moms, it did for me: my mom would love to wear a necklace with this Botticelli pendant http://www.artbeads.com/ab-ppt011.html, she is a big fan of classical painters. I would keep the necklace quite simple with lace beaded chain in light colors to center all attention on the pendant.

    My Best Wishes and good luck to everybody 🙂

  4. I would get http://www.artbeads.com/pb-pen16.html the Handpainted Porcelain and Sterling Silver Pendant Evening Elegance
    for my mom, myself, and each ofmy sisters because we are all moms and enjoy our motherhood.

  5. My favorite thinking of Mother’s Day this year would be the Sterling/Resin 13x18mm Pendant – Apple Tree. My mother is gone now so my favorite mother is actually my daughter, she has given my 2 beautiful twin granddaughters. I even have a name for the piece picked out! I would like to create a family tree necklace with it and give it to her!

    The Rectangle Black Onyx – Evening Star, by Mucha…and I guess I would have to make a necklace….Suzanne

  6. I love the Kabela antique brass butterfly. I would make my mother a beautiful bracelet with it. I am very lucky to have my mom live near me as I had my first child (a girl) in 2009 and I am almost 35. My mom is a special woman and I love having her so close to my daughter.

  7. I love the sterling silver script letter beads to spell out MOM on a bracelet made with sterling silver beads and Swarovski Elements.

    I love the TierraCast Antique Silver Love Mom Charm. It’s simple but charming! I’d make a charm bracelet with it.

  8. I love this black onyx peacock pendant (http://www.artbeads.com/ab-aic1.html) and would make a necklace for my Mom.

  9. I LOVE the Effortless Chic Necklace/Bracelet set I would make this for my mom and IF I won the $100 I could make one for my mother in law and myself as well 🙂 I have always wanted a Pandora Bracelet and can not afford it this would be an amazing gift to my mom, mother in law, and myself.

  10. My mother loves the color purple and always has to have coordinating earrings with a necklace. I would love to make her a necklace using purple silk with violet pearls and classy pearl earrings to match.

    I am making my Mom a Tree of Life pendant using the birthstones of her 11 children. The 18″ Royal Blue Satin Necklace (Code: NS20-RBLU) would be the perfect finishing touch!

    • Cheryl Soltysik

    I would use 3-4 different size swarovski heart pendants and chain to make a necklace without a clasp. My Mom has difficulty with clasps and loves the necklaces I make for her that slip on over her head.

    • Susan Mullins
    • April 12, 2011

    After reviewing the selections my favorite is the Rectangle Mother of Pearl Teal Ornament. I would use this in a necklace using silver chain and some complimentary teal colored rounds.

  11. My mom was a mater gardener so I would use one of the flowered ceramic pendants with pearls..her favorite. I would also get her a gift certificate. She does bead embroidery.

  12. I LOVE all things Swarovski Crystal Elements!
    But my Favorite is the wild heart pendant! I will be making my Mom a beautiful necklace with a Swarovski Wild heart pendant this year.

    Before I even looked at your specific Mothers Day section – I knew my favorite Mothers Day item would be pearls. There is just something about pearls and moms…I’m thinking the blues and browns….

    • Mary K

    My favorite is the “Handpainted Porcelain & Sterling Pendant Deco.” And I would make a necklace with it as the focal point.

  13. Wow…a difficult decision to make…I would love one of everything!!! If I had to choose I would choose one of the hand painted porcelain hearts…they are gorgeous!! I would then sell it and donate the proceeds to the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Ontario! For my Mother…I’d have her choose her favorite something and make exactly what she wanted…
    Cheers

  14. http://www.artbeads.com/ab-ppt07.html?cmp=smb I love this pendant and would love to make a bracelet for myself out of it for Mothers Day.

  15. i love the letters id make her a beautiful braclet with her favourate colour crystals saying either mum or her name

  16. Last year, I used the oval hammered silver links to make a grandmothers’ bracelet by flattening the links, then hand stamping the names of my children and my nephews.

    This year, I plan to string up some freshwater pearls in different sizes and shapes, and make a kumihiro style bracelet!

    Hard to choose but I really like the Mother of Pearl Violet Fern Pendant. Reminds me of my Mom – one of her favorite colors. I would do a necklace with some soft, light violet beads and small silver beads with the pendant.

  17. I really like the Blacklip Shell Offset Donut 38x38mm – Red Design and would make a necklace with single spiral rope using pearls.

  18. I would use the porcelain puffed rectangle peacock bead with a mix of colorful pearls and beads and dangle the mom bead from it and give it to my mother. That peacock bead is soooo pretty!

  19. I just fell in love with the 20x30mm Rectangle Black Onyx Peacock pendant! This would make a striking necklace for my Mother! I create most of my mothers jewelry! I would add it onto a sterling or gold chain with a few small beads on either side to frame it. This soooo her! Elegant and detailed!

    I also love the pendant featuring Mucha’s Evening Star. I think I would wire wrap around it and mount it as a brooch for a pashmina scarf. 🙂

    My mom sparkled every minute she was alive! She loved jewelry so much and as she got older, she adored the sparkle of Swarovski crystals. She would wear single strands of crystal bracelets stacked 5 or 6 at a time so she could watch them sparkle! Bless her heart, she was legally blind, but she could tell a Swarovski from across the room.
    I miss my mom every day and if she were still here, I’d pile another 6 crystal bracelets on her loving arms….and make her a necklace to match!

    Oh my so many to choose from ! They are all
    so beautiful ! I love the Tropic Queen, so I will choose that one. I have not made any jewelry pieces as of yet, so this say’s beginner and fit’s me.
    I have longed to make jewelry, I had a jewelry class in middle school and made a pearl ring. It was the greatest class I ever took ! Never good at pottery. I adore jewelry so by winning this $100 contest and making this necklace, it may put a spark in my life ! I am hoping to win, and if I make it I plan on keeping it. Everything I have ever made, crochet,knit,needlepoint someone has always talked me out of it. I have not one thing I ever made from my past. This one will be mine ! Thank you for the chance !

    I would buy 4 of the flowery hearts pendants, and string them on floral colored silk, along with some resin flowers sewn to the silk with a seed bead center. I would keep one, give one to my Maternal grandmother, one to my mother, and I would go and place one on my paternal grandmother’s grave. It would be a small but significant token of my family matriarchal solidarity.

    I would love to make my mother a beautiful beaded watch chain for the Marcasite Rounded Diamond Watch Face. It is very special and my mother is a special person. I would make the chain either out of small beaded silver wire or just big black and silver beads. I know she would just love it!

  20. I’d live to make a necklace using the Terra Cast Antique Copper Ginkgo Leaf Charms to create a unique Mother’s Day necklace with the Terra Cast Antique Copper Tree of Life Charm. I think the tree of life is a unique way to represent motherhood withe the leaves representing her children.

    • Diane Krupa

    I love the flower plant charm, since I love to garden. I will make a charm bracelet and wear it everywhere!

  21. I would use some crystals in birthstone colors, one of the sterling “worlds greatest mom” charm, and use bezel settings to set black and white images of all of my mom’s children.

    • Mindy Taylor
    • April 13, 2011

    My favorite item is the porcelain heart Pendent in green paisley, I would make my Mom a necklace & a lapel pin similar to the necklace.

    • Pamela in Calgary, AB
    • April 13, 2011

    I am in love with the Magenta Love in Bloom pendant. I would make a simple necklace with it, with a few crystals on each side.

  22. I would chose the resin Blue Tree with Blossoms pendant for my Mother. The blue is gorgeous and calming and the tree would represent that she is the trunk of our blooming family. My Dad could be a root. LOL.

    • Jamie
    • April 13, 2011

    My favourite is the Sterling Silver Heart Picture Frame and I would give it to my Mother for her birthday.

  23. My mom loves pink and pearls and wire-wrapped items, so I’m thinking of a couple of the new Swarovski hearts in astral pink with coordinating pearls, with rose-gold wire and toggle clasp.

    • Amy S.
    • April 13, 2011

    My mother would love the Sonoma Bracelet. Tbe colors are gorgeous and my mom enjoys bracelets because she can see the artwork on her wrist. The bracelet would remind her of her travels to California with my dad.

    • April 13, 2011

    Ooh, I would say the hand-dyed silk, it’s so pretty! My mom has a bit of trouble opening and using most clasps, so it would make a perfect easy-on/easy-off necklace!

    • Heidi Susanna Burri

    There are so many awesome items to choose from it’s quite hard to narrow it down to one…
    but I have found a pendant that I could use in a necklace I plan on making for her. I know the colour suits her style and she loves Swarovski.

    I chose the – Swarovski 6191 48mm Divine Rock Pendant Crystal Red Magma – but as I said before, it is one of many that I’d love to work with.

  24. Hard pressed to choose just one thing, but I’d love to use the Mucha inspired beads in either a mobile charm or an opera length necklace with a tassel and blackened metal frame.

    My favorate would be winter by mucha, mom was born in Jan. and turning that into a necklace would be fun.

  25. My mom loves jewelry, but nothing too large. One of her favorite colors is pink, so I think I’d make her a necklace with the sterling/resin-pink with flowers pendant and hang it on a simple but elegant sterling chain.
