#Beadtober – Challenge Yourself and Win!

It’s that time again! You all loved our #Beadtober challenge last year, so we’re challenging you again this year. For the entire month of October, we’ll be sharing prompts each day to inspire your creativity. Make new jewelry for every day of the challenge, share creations you’ve already made, or show off beads from your stash. However you participate, it’s sure to be inspiring to everyone else. Join us on Instagram and our private Facebook group starting October 1st and share posts for each day’s theme (make sure you join the group and follow us on Instagram so you can see what others share). Use the hashtags #beadtober and #SeriousArtbeader with each post so everyone can see your posts show up on the hashtags. You could even win some beading supplies just by participating. Keep reading to see the themes we’ve chosen for each day and to learn more about our Beadtober Giveaway.

    I only make jewelry for family, friends, and of course myself. No website for me. I want to try this challenge as I haven’t made much of anything lately and feel it would be a good learning experience.
    Thank you for doing this
