A Midnight Garden themed giveaway!

I have some exciting news!  In conjunction with The Bead Shop (Manchester) I am running an easy to enter contest to win a fabulous hand picked selection of beads and it is open to international entrants!  All you need to do to be in with a chance of winning this stunning prize, is answer two simple questions and leave a comment on this entry of my blog, along with your name and a valid email address (or some way for me to contact you) to enable me to contact the lucky winner to arrange delivery of the prize.  If you have been following my blog you will know that for some time now I have been working on what I call my 'Midnight Garden' collection - using a very limited colour palette of beads I have been creating a themed body of work with a fairy tale feel to it.  I have a mental image of a secret walled garden bathed in the light of the full moon at midnight, all overgrown with twisting vines and leaves, full of night blooming flowers and mystical creatures, where magical things happen if you are fortunate enough to witness them.  One of the key pieces (shown below) is called 'Gateway to the Garden' and it represents an ancient arched entrance to the garden with an old gnarled tree curving round the door and lots of leaves and long grasses growing up the wall.  I have worked around a piece of labradorite and if you look very closely through the archway I am convinced that you can see the fairies dancing in the moonlight within the garden.


I was thrilled when The Bead Shop (Manchester) first contacted me to discuss the possibility of us doing some work together and we decided to start by doing something a little different.  I have carefully filled my shopping cart with the beads that I would love to incorporate in my Midnight Garden (shown below) but instead of them being delivered to me, we will be giving these beads away to one lucky winner to enable them to create their own imaginative piece.  The prize includes a delicious mix of Miyuki Delicas and Duracoat seed beads in midnight greys and silvers, lots of shadowy grey Swarovski crystal pearls, some super sparkly Swarovski crystals including an incredibly twinkly star pendant and a selection of whimsical charms that fit in perfectly with my theme.  It would be lovely if the winner decided to show me what they make with this wonderful selection of beads, but there is absolutely no pressure to do this!


So how do you enter this exciting giveaway?  It's very simple - leave the correct answers to both of the following questions as a comment on this blog entry along with your name and a valid email address (or some way for me to contact you):

  1. In what year was The Bead Shop (Manchester) established?
  2. How many different beading patterns do I sell directly from my website?

The closing date is the 18th of December and after that date I will put all correct answers into a hat and the lucky winner will be notified by me and then contacted by The Bead Shop (Manchester) to arrange delivery of the prize.

Make sure you tell your friends about this fun giveaway so that they can be in with a chance of winning this Midnight Garden themed prize.  Good luck everyone!

Kerrie

  2. Well I know that The Bead Shop was established in 1993 and that I have been so wanting to order from them because I hear their customer service is outstanding.
    And you really didn't need to ask ME how many tutorials you have for sale because I have been following for so long that I know you have 11 on your website with 2 added in just the last couple of months!! You also totally know I am in absolute love with your Midnight Garden and since I have touched only one of those pieces I know that they are all just as spectacular!!!

  3. What a wonderful giveaway !! To work with a pre-selected color palette would be a dream !!

  10. Kerrie! What a super fun idea! I have so loved seeing what you've created in your Midnight Garden. As an avid fantasy fiction reader, your pieces walk hand in hand with my imagination. I've counted 12 tutes on your site, since the Pilgrims Cross is in French and English, and the Bead Shop has been in business since 1993.
    Thank you for such a great idea, and for sharing your creativity with the world.

  15. Hi Kerrie, Thanks for this great giveaway. To answer your questions:
    1) The Bead Shop opened in 1993
    2) You have 12 different beading patterns for sale on your website. I counted the different language versions of the Pilgrim's Cross as different patterns, because although they are for the same product, they are different!
    I'm keeping my fingers crossed on this! Would love to win a whole bunch of cool beads!
    Thanks.

  33. Hi Kerrie,

    I think you have 11 patterns last time I looked. I love them and have them.

    As far as The Bead Shop is concerned. It is 7808.71 kilometers (km). or 4,852.11 miles. It's not exactly on my daily route of shops...lol. I think it was established in ....yes I did go look....1993..

    I love your garden collection...mystical moonlit trellis comes to mind...don't know why I thought of that? lol

  35. Kerrie: My answers are:
    1. 1993
    2. You sell 11 Different patterns...you sell the cross in both English and French, but I'm only counting that as 1 as it is the same design. If I counted all places where I could put a purchase in a shopping cart, then it would be 12.
    Oh me, always nit-picking!
    Have a great day - and I made a Beader's Garden for the anniversary of our Bead Society of New Jersey - would love to send you a couple of photos if you would like to see where the 'fairies' hang out!

  37. Hi Kerry ! I like following your blog every now and then.I love your designs. The gateway to the Garden is lovely - the colors are so pretty.
    The whole idea of faries and fantasy is very fitting for me - the wall next to my bed is full of various faries and my favorite pastime is beading.

    All the best to whoever wins,

    I'll be purchasing the core bead tutorial, and if I won the Midnight Garden-themed prize I would make core beads from those beads.
