Win free lucite beads!

I have a very simple earring tutorial in the current issue of BeadStyle magazine, and now you can win a goodie bag of lucite beads, including the beads to make these earrings!



So leave a comment (with an email if you don't have a blog you're linked to)! For extra chances, post this on your blog, Twitter, and/or Facebook. If you'd like to become a follower, I'd be honored.

I'll draw a name a week from now, August 10th, so be sure to check back -- mark your calendars now!

Thanks, and happy beading!!!

  63. Lori, I've been following you for the past several months now... because of certain forces we lost touch, but I want you to know that you are currently a huge inspiration in reviving my desire to design jewelry again. I spent four years trying to forget my "inner" calling and have been miserable in the process. My heart will always remember your generous nature and your willingness to share information in order to help fellow artisans. I applaud your style and your drive and thank you for sharing your talents with all of us in cyberspace. Barbara Marie
