Thursday Giveaway...

This week's art bead giveaway comes courtesy of Cathy Collison of Glass Garden Beads in Northfield, MN. One winner will receive a set of three domed and soldered bottle cap beads. I love that these lightweight beads are made out of recycled materials. Not only are these beads "green" but they're also charmingly stylish. Very hip!

To enter to win this set of beads, all you have to do is a leave a comment on this post. A winner will be randomly selected from the comment section on Monday (April 19th) at midnight EST. Do make sure to leave your name if it doesn't already appear next to your comment.

Note: Two of the three bottle caps come from alcoholic beverages. In some public schools, a Zero Tolerance policy is in effect that prevents any "alcohol-related paraphernalia" to be on school grounds, with the potential of suspension or even expulsion. By winning these beads, the winner accepts all responsibility for the usage of the materials and acknowledges that they were clearly warned that these beads are best suited for adults over the age of 18 and will not hold this blog, Glass Garden Beads, or related affiliates responsible for any possible or actual repercussions resulting from the prize materials.

I have been saving up some bottle caps for her to make some special beads. I might have to dig those out of hiding (in a box in my garage no doubt) and send them in. These are sweet! Thanks to you and Cathy for being so generous. Enjoy the day, Andrew! Erin

Man O man~ I have always loved bottlecap beads!isn't it a crazy world when you have to put up a disclaimer like that?& P/S this month's charms were great, the b&w wing, is it 'shrinky dink' plastic?Thanks again:)

I love these beads, not only how they look, but how they feel in your hands and in a bracelet! I loved the Green Garden booth at the Best Bead show, but didn't get nearly enough cool things.

I have admired the bottle cap beads, but I'm never able to just pick one to buy, so I haven't (one of these days I'll make a decision...)

What a clever way to recycle! How sad it is that you have to put a warning like that over beads. Thanks for the chance.
