Birthday Week Giveaway: Day Three...

This is the third installment of the Birthday Week Giveaways! Today we have a stash of sea glass bead strands from Auntie's Beads!

One lucky winner will take home this treasure trove of sea glass beads! Included are strands of small seafoam rounds, dark olive nuggets, spring green grounds, opaque sky blue rounds, medium seafoam rounds, and olivine rounds. I love the satin, matte finish. They are silky to the touch, which makes them ideal for bracelets. The other great thing about the tumbled glass, is that matte finish seems to absorb light. This gives the beads an airy, soft-edge quality.

For more sea glass beads, check out the entire selection at the Auntie's Beads website. There are a surprising number of colors! They offer more than just the regular bottle glass varieties. Make sure to check out the more unusual colors like strawberry, cranberry, amber, amethyst, and red marble!

To win these beads, all you have to do is leave a comment on this blog post. A lucky winner will be randomly selected from the comment section of this blog post on Monday (September 27th) at midnight EST. Please leave your name and pertinent contact information if it doesn't already appear next to your comment. This giveaway is open to all readers, including international ones.
