Dear friends, We are starting to receive the designs for the contest of making jewelry for the month of March, and win packages tagua bead and coconut.
As indicated in previous publications, starting this month we’ve modified contest rules and have allowed the participation of artworks elaborated with any material (no restrictions!). We want people in the beading community to learn about tagua bead, seed beads, an ecological material.
On this occasion, a great friend and loyal customer of our beads store and of our beads jewelry supplies, Sara Maruri, decided to join us and share with all of you her beautiful designs. She lives in Guayaquil, Ecuador and I am really surprised by her beautiful artworks. It is curious that after several years of working together, I have recently had the opportunity to see her jewelry artworks. We’re learning a lot and meeting many interesting people through these campaigns that we are performing. We are very lucky: We are in the company of the best community of the world.
I do not want to take any more time from you, Therefore I present the first competitor of the month of March:
