The winner will claim the prize of one caramel oval focal bead with silver foil, one black oval focal bead with gold foil, a strand of white rondelles with black lines and dots, six black and beige bumpy dot disc beads and ten black and white swirls with dots beads. I love the neutral color palettes and organic flow of the lines, dots and swirls. The best part of these beads is that even though they are stylish, they are inexpensive and highly affordable.

I'm a sucker for freshwater pearls, so this mixed freshwater pearl strand is gorgeous to me: http://www.auntiesbeads.com/54quot-Freshwater-Potato-Pearl-Strand-Multi_p_6046.html

Hi Andrew,
The beads are beautiful, when I visited Auntie's Beads I thought something was wrong with my computer. Her lampwork beads are so affordable. The natural beads were really neat too. I wonder how you use those glue in forms?

I love Auntie's Beads since I was introduced to them earlier this year! Great customer service. I am smitten with all the copper I see there. Their pendants and charms and beads are awesome. Love that you can buy what you need. And I have a strand of turquoise mosaic magnesite that I love from them. Thanks for sharing Andrew! Someone will be lucky indeed! Enjoy the day!

I have used Aunties for a number of years now. Their service is great and their products are always good with fair prices. I also always recommend Aunties to my students.
I wish I could say the design and techniques page is my fave "product" but that doesn't count I'm sure. So if I have to pick one item it would be the czech glass as I use quite a bit of it myself.

Since it's still summer... I like the sea glass beads.

Terri said...
