Thursday Giveaway...

I've decided to host weekly giveaways of art beads from some of my favorite bead-makers here on the blog. To play along, all you have to do is leave a comment on this post. (Make sure to leave your name if it doesn't already appear so that Anonymous 1 doesn't get into a fight with Anonymous 2 about who actual won.) A winner will be randomly selected from the comments on the following Monday (April 5th) at midnight EST.

This week's giveaway comes courtesy of the talented ceramist, Keith O'Connor. The beads up for grabs are an assortment of five teal glazed beads. Aren't they lovely! Thanks for playing and do keep an eye out for future giveaways!
