 Starting Monday, March 1, 8:00am Eastern time, these beads will be given away to 20 lucky people.  If you are a jewelry designer or artist or anyone who would like to use my beads in a creative way,  post a comment with the set number you would like and I will send them to you.  
Free. 
The only thing I ask is that you send me a picture of what you have created with them within 60 days.  I will post the pictures on my website giving each artist credit for their work and their contact information.  

The beads will be given in the order of receipt of the comments.   I will post the recipients and the beads they will receive on the blog.  Once this is posted, I will have them send me an email with the address they would like the beads to be delivered to.   One set per person please.

I am doing this because I have been making jewelry for several years and recently have really gotten into  making lampwork beads and want to put all my focus into them.  So, I want to spread the word!  Right now my website is a work in progress so I have a few things at my www.etsy.com/shop/maudies.  If you have an Etsy store, I will also post your creations in a gallery on my shop with your information.

For those of you that are not familiar with lampwork beads, they are glass beads which I make by melting glass onto a steel rod that is coated with a release. The beads are annealed in a digitally controlled kiln for strength and durability.   Then cleaned of all bead release.  I hope to post a video of making a bead soon but unfortunately my video camera is not working at this time.  

Remember to check back on March 1st!!!!!  

Have a creative day!   Ann
