    I would make a necklace all sterling silver and add my mother favorite colors of crystal and her birthstone amethyst. I would use Strass crystals in briolettes, round and bicone shapes in fern green, province lavender and wasabi green pearls:)

    HIya.. My favorite the mothers day charms. I love to make and wear charm bracelets. I would love to make these for my mom and mother in law. I have a lot of pretty crystals and beads to make the bracelets..just one thing is missing..those pretty charms. 😉

  1. I looked through all the Mother’s Day collections..and all of the items that were collected were so very beautiful…but one stood out for me..The Wish Angel Box Pendant. Although my Mother lives across the street she becomes very lonely for me…we are absolutely bestfriends…and are definitely very attached. I want to make a necklace with this charm. In the box I am going to put a lock of my hair and a bit of my childhood blanket…which was a Satin nightgown of my mother’s… as a child I was inseperable from it…because it smelled of Mother… I said it was sweet, soft and smelled good…just like Mommy. She would stroke my hair as I sucked my thumb and twirled the blanket between the fingers. She absolutely loves the angel theme…because I am her angel…so she says all the time. She can wear the pendant close to her heart…just as I am always..whether I am with her or not… She will never be “alone” from me. Artbead always has the very best selection of items that bring my creations alive and with beauty!! ..Thank you Artbeads for having this item…It will be the perfect Mother’s Day Present whether I win the contest or not… I will definitely “win” my Mommy’s heart. <3

  2. I love this pendant! 1.5-Inch Double Sided Donut – Gold Iris and Bamboo – Faith The colors are soft and lovely and with the Chinese character for faith on it, it’s a wonderful reminder of our heritage. My great grands were missionaries in China, and faith is what describes my Mom to a t!

    Venetian Glass 16mm Zanfirico Millefiori Round – Amethyst to make the Evening in Venice Necklace and make it a 24 inch rather than an 18.

  3. I would make a modern- day version of a cameo-inspired piece!

    Just a though! I don’t make jewelry! I make cards.

    My mother-in-law had this great wallpaper with art deco women, stars, and moons in her old bathroom. She regretted losing those images when they renovated… For that reason, I think using the onyx pendant ‘evening star’ on an antique bronze chain with wire wrapped topaz swarovski elements and maybe some coral highlight beads would be a knockout gift!

    I love flowers and purple color, I choose Opaline Purple Glass Dagger Bead I would like to make a ring and a pendant to my mom, of course with a green leaves Olive Green with Picasso and Luster Large Petal Drop
    I love artbeads, thanks for give to us this opportunity

    My Favorite is the Sterling Frame-it would make a perfect gift for my Mom. I would either use it as for a bracelet-or make a necklace for my Mom using it. 🙂

    Thank you so much Artbeads! If I win-I will share the gift certificate with my Mom! 🙂 She also makes jewelry.

  4. I love the glass pendants… of course being a mother, a grandmother, and a jewelry maker, I would love having all of it 🙂

    I love all the crystals and pearls! They Make MOM’s Sparkle!

    I would take a different spin on the Mother’s Pride. LOVE THE COLORS. Love Swarovski’s. I think that they are the most versatile beads. I think I would make a rosary out of these beads. Afterall, spirituality is very important to many mothers!!!

    • Michele B
    • April 14, 2011

    I would use the light purple pendent that says love, wire wrap some purple fresh water pearls, purple sw, black sw, and give to my mom for mothers day.

    I love the Magenta Love in Bloom! I lost my Mom to cancer on Christmas Day 1989. But, now that I am a Mom, I would love to make a nice necklace for my daughter, so she would always have something special from me for years to come. Also, her favorite color is pink!

  5. Your silk hydrangea blend would be lovely strung with three brassed vined links, one for each of my children, a copper dove and copper dove locket.

    Sterling/Resin 16mm Pendant – Magenta Love in Bloom

    I would use black onyx beads and a chain to create a necklace.

    I don’t have a mother to give it to, so I would probably give it to a dear friend.

    I love the simple sterling silver mother disc. I would make my mom a beautiful braclet with this as the focal point. I would use amethyst (her birthstone) and light purple fresh water pearls with sterling silver spacer beads to finish it off. My mother has been a huge supporter of my Autisic son. If it wasn’t for her I wouldn’t have had time to take for myself once in awhile to bead again after the birth of my son.

  6. Mothers need to gift to themselves to be the best they can be. As a mom, I would love to make myself a necklace with the Pablo Picasso Black Onyx Benedetta Canals and pair it with cloisonne in black and white. I also would love to make a necklace in my favorite colors, and birthstone namesake with another onyx pendant, Amethyst by Mucha, paired with Purple Fire Designs Furnace Glass Beads and my own lampwork beads!

  7. Definitly the Heart Of Gold necklace for my mom. My dad had gotten her one years ago that resembles this one and after his death 3 years ago she went to get it out of her jewelry box and it is gone. I think she would really like this..

  8. I would use the World’s Greatest Mom charm, with crystals and sterling silver chain. Because she is the world’s greatest Mom. Through thick and thin she has stuck beside me and supported me in the best of times and the darkest of times. I want her to know that I wouldn’t trade her for all the tea in China as my grandmother used to say. Everyone deserves a Mom as special as mine is.

    I am having a difficult time picking something but it would definately be one of the Russian Artist pendants- I have had my eye on them for a long time! Thanks for the great give away!

  9. I love the Renewal Bracelet idea and would love to purchase the supplies to make one as a gift for my mother-in-law.

    • Janice Lee
    • April 14, 2011

    It would be one of the floral lampwork or porcelain beads — I’m having trouble making up my mind. I would make a necklace. I’m normally a beadweaver but in this case I would make a strung necklace.

    This is something that came to me the instant I saw it. My choice is ‘Swarovski 4139B 30mm Ceramic Cosmic Ring Marbled Blue’ because it represents the Circle of life and the connection a Mother and daughter have. Its an every lasting love and bond that nothing can break, not even Death! Yes my mother has passed. To make her a piece of jewelry from this round ring would remind me how much she loved me! Wow, now to mention the color… I saw the colors of Heaven. This is the only place my mother could have gone. She had a beautiful soul and lived her life that way. I can only hope my children and children’s children feel the same way about me. Happy Mother’s Day MOM!

    Happy Beading 🙂

    My mom has always loved owls and I’m using a pendant with swarovski rivolis for eyes, which I created from scratch. Getting this giftcard would help be create an identical bracelet and a pair of earrings to go with it.

    I love the Rectangle Dragonflies with Tube Pendant and just purchased it last week. I am going to make a necklace for my mother using this pendant because dragonflies make us think of my dad who passed away 12 years ago.

  10. My favorite piece is the Magenta Love in Bloom. I would make a necklace with it for my Mother. It would be a great way to show her appreciation for everything she’s done for me. We have had some rough patches in our relationship, but we are growing or “blooming” into a better relationship. Therefore it would be perfect. Plus I love the look of it. So that would be my idea.

  11. My Mom passed away back in 1972, when I was 14, sooooo, if my Mom were alive, I would make her a beautiful necklace, using the Sterling/Resin 16mm Pendant, Red w/Cat, as the centerpiece. Her favorite colors were Red & Black, as well as she had a Black Cat named Pywacket back then! Red & Black, with the Black Cat would be perfect for her! Thanx for the opportunity to win a gift certificate!!!

  12. I love using crystals and any findings to make earrings for my mother-in-law! Handmade gifts mean so much more.

  13. I would choose the Rectangle Black Onyx – Birth of Venus, by Botticelli because my mom is an artist (specializes in nudes) so she would relate and appreciate the skill that goes into this pendant!

    • Michelle Hunt
    • April 14, 2011

    I would use the 20-21×30-31mm Rectangle Black Onyx Butterfly as a pendant on a necklace, perhaps accented with other black beads. I do love the butterfly because it reminds me of the lovely security I felt with my mother as a child.

    • Marjolaine David

    I love the Rectangle Black Onyx Peacock, My mom doesn’t wear any jewelry so I would make her a book mark with it. But for my mother in law I will would make her a necklace with the Silver Wish Box Angel and purple swarovski crystal. I would Love to win this gift certificate it would be a nice mother’s day gift for sure.

  14. My favorite component is the Sterling silver heart picture frame ISPF-0001. I would make some “New Arrival Bracelets” for a couple new Moms in our family.

    Love the STARRY NIGHT necklace for inspiration. Those are my colors, but my Mom is more of an earthy/autumn gal. I’d love to transform the design into rich golds, vibrant reds and some complementing greens. My Mom lives a long way away so I can’t see her on Mother’s Day – so wish I could. I’d love to put a necklace together and pop it in the mail so she gets a wonderful surprise 🙂

    i would use sterling silver making a good pendant like square with that and use czech cristal black with transparent making a Wire Herringbone in each bead add a few of charms make different wire like spiral with unakite cubes bead and flowers with Fossil Jasper Flat Oval and make the earrings and the bracelet with the same beads and kind of wire for everything look the same using different types of wire make the set interesting and cute

  15. I would get a whole bunch of sterling silver jump rings, some 20 and 28g sterling silver wire, and a 20mm swarovski open square in Vitrail Light and I would make a chain maille bracelet with a wire wrapped focal point that is modern, cool, and tres blingy!!

  16. Stoneware Square Pendant with Sparrow. This will be the first Mother’s Day we will truly be blessed. My mom about died the first week of this year from a serious infection. Although she is still in therapy she is alive and getting better everyday. She is an avid bird watcher and collects bird objects. I would love to make her a necklace with this pendant depicting a bird.

  17. My fave is the Stoneware Square pendant with Sparrow. I would make a beautiful necklace to celebrate Mom.

    Ooo, the Swarovski pendants! My mom has windows that get a lot of sun, I’d make her some beaded suncatchers using the pendants, wire, and lots of different beads all down the strand.

    I don’t have a mom, but I try to make Mother’s Day a happy day for me anyway. 🙂 There are wonderful products in your Mother’s Day section. One that really speaks to me right now is “A Day at the Beach.”

    Love all the contests and specials! So glad I found Artbeads on Facebook.

    It’s so hard to choose just one item but I love item #SW-PEND140. The Stoneware Large Flower Bouquet Heart Pendant with offset left hole. It has lots of colors and would be stunning with almost any accents colors. It could be attached to leather, chain or silk ribbon to create a special treasured piece.

  18. I would buy my mom the resin pendant magenta love in bloom. She really likes pinks, light blues, and lavender so it would suit her! I would use it with beads that are similar in color to make her a lovely and classy necklace to show off to her friends and neighbors!

    • Jennifer Roberts
    • April 14, 2011

    I would make a “tree of life” pendant using wire and Swarovski crystals in the birth month colors of myself and my sister and our three kids in the “leaves” area and my Mom’s birth month color in the “root” area because she is our strength and our root and what holds us all together and of course attach that to a necklace. I have an amazing Mother.

  19. The mother/daughter lady bug bracelet kit is absolutely adorable. I would love to purchase several of those kits to make and give to my sisters and nieces to celebrate the unique bond we mothers have with our daughters and to remind us how narrow of a time space between our daughters wanting to be just like Mommy and to wanting to be their own independent person really is.

    I lost my mom three years ago and always think of her when I see beautiful spring flowers since her birthday is also in April. I would love more rivolis and daggers to use to make flowers where the daggers are like petals. The mixed strand you have with brown and turquoise daggers is perfect!

    This is the hardest holiday for me,(sorry)my Mom was so creative,she taught me to crochet etc..she is my inspiration in every thing I do.I think the World’s Greatest Mom pendant would be my choice,then she could look at it and know how much she means to me.But to be honest…a big hug and tell her I lOVE Her,would mean the world to me.I lost her 8 yrs ago.Thank You for such a wonderful site.

    I love the sterling heart photo frame charm. I would put a family pic in it and make a bookmark for it to dangle from. She is an avid reader and It would be used daily.

    • Peggy Rardin
    • April 14, 2011

    I would use the beautiful Rectangle Black Onyx – Evening Star, by Mucha in a necklace. This pendant represents the strengths of a woman who becomes a mother. This pendant shows the mind, heart, and a defined muscle in the the arm which represents physical strength to me. Most women can have a baby, but it takes the beautiful strength of heart, mind, and physical body to be fabulous mom. That beauty is the ultimate beauty. This is my mom.
