Kay Thomerson


Pot Charmers/Plant Stakes

These are adorable little beaded, copper wire jewelry for your plants.  They’re made with copper wire and have a yellow and orange polymer clay lily flower attached to them.  The flower is dressed up with orange, yellow and green dyed howlite beads strung on copper wire.  There’s a copper wire tendril attached to finish them off.  They hang from a loop on the wire stake and can be put in your plant pots to dress/accessorize them.  They are about 8" tall.  

Value  $12.00 for the 2 pot charmers



 
Jennifer Cameron


"DIY Autumn Harvest Earring Kit"

Included are all the supplies you need to create one pair of earrings 
* 24" wire (enough to screw up 2 earrings because that is what I would do),
* 2 jump rings and 2 ear wires
* 2 torch fired (by me) metal enameled beads in your choice of color. 

 
The nature of enamel beads dictates that no two beads will be exactly the same.I will also email a PDF of the earring tutorial (or you can read the free tutorial on my blog)

Value $16

Use code virtualcraftshow20 for 20% off anything in my etsy shop or website. Always free shipping to the US and Canada. All international is free on my website.

Norma Agron


I'm giving away this Polymer Clay Green Retro Mechanical Pencil made by me. Metal finishes are 24k gold plated. It uses .7mm leads (2 provided).

Value $15




Skylar Bre'z


A beveled glass cabochon protects a striking art print, featuring two birds in a tree. With its bare branches, the tree makes me think of the isolation of winter, made so much easier by the companions we keep by our sides during the dark and gloomy times. 

Seed bead embroidery in turquoise and black surround the bevel, with the neckpiece of dyed turquoise howlite rondelles and glass millefiori beads.

Length is 17".

Value:  $78

All necklaces 15% off with code VCR15




Kate Gardenghi


Art Bead Bundle

-A primrose pendant in orange and turquoise (one of the beads inspired by the Ophelia ABS challenge).  1 inch diameter, distressed and with a custom patina, this bead is one of my most popular items. 

- 5 of my lentil beads in orange and turquoise. 5/8 inch in diameter. Layers of millefiori canes create beads that can support and add detail to a design or stand alone.

-5 disk bead in orange and turquoise.1/4 inch wide and ranging in diameter from 3/8-1/2 inch, these beads make wonderful accents.

-38 inches of coordinating sari silk.

Value $29


20% off all merchandise during the event (coupon code VCS20).




Rachel Myers


 Classic Princess Necklace

I got inspired to make this necklace when i saw these pretty greenish blue oval crystals sitting in a bowl along side with the rondelles which are two toned. The light blue Czech crystal pearls match wonderful with the Chinese crystal oval.  I love it with antique brass chain and bead caps. The chain drapes beautifully on the neck. Looks great with almost everything.

Length: 24" long with a 2 1/4" focal

Value $38




Michelle Mach

 
Winter Wonderland Beading Inspiration Kit


Use the patterns and colors on the box to inspire a unique jewelry design.  Kit includes 75+ beads (not including seed beads), plus 24" of silver-plated chain.  The types of beads in the kit include vintage Lucite, gemstones, shell, glass, pearls, crystals, and filigree.  Kit also include a small tube of seed beads and pewter snowflake charms. This is a one-of-a-kind kit created from my personal bead stash.  There are no instructions or patterns included; use your imagination to make something wonderful!


Value $24

Discount for 3 days of the show, free shipping in store (US only), Code is FREESHIPNOV



Penny Neville


Byzantine Bracelet

A beautiful natural brass byzantine bracelet that has been paired with a lovely copper blank that has been filled with crystal clay and accented with Swarovski crystals in an amber mix.  The size of the bracelet 7.5" and will come gift wrapped for you or that special someone.
Value $38




Laurel Steven

 
Handmade Pink and Silver Floral Heart Pendant


This floral embossed heart is made from a custom blended pink polymer, then pressed into my proprietary mold of a bit of vintage carved plastic. The detailed strip that frames it is added after the shape is cut out. It is baked, and then colored by hand with a wax-based patina. The back is fully finished as well.

This one needed no glaze, I simply sanded and buffed it to a shine. There is large fancy jump ring embedded in the center, all ready for you to use in your creations, or put on your favorite chain, cord, or ribbon. It would look great with a simple black velvet ribbon, or  any silver chain, or used as a focal for one of your own beaded or mixed media masterpieces!  It measures 1.5" wide by 1.5" tall by 1.5" in depth.

Value $12



Lori Anderson


"New Dimensions in Wire Jewelry" by Margot Potter

Margot Potter's brand new book full of truly unique beading ideas!  Brand new and ready for you to dig into and get your bead on!

Value:  $17




Come back tomorrow for 
Day Five and more giveaways!
