Fairy Tale Inspired {The Monthly Challenge}

Hello! Welcome to The Bead Shop Liverpool blog! We thought about spending some time introducing the staff, telling you what we have planned for the blog and showing off some of our products - and then we thought 'nah, let's just get on with it, shall we?' There's no hanging about here when there's beads to play with! 

So, without further ado, let us introduce you to The Bead Shop Liverpool's monthly challenge. On the 1st of the month we'll be posting a challenge theme to inspire your jewellery making - whether you're a seed beader, stringer, metal clay worker, kumihimo lover or an all round beadaholic!

This month, we'd like you to create something inspired by Janie Grohman's beautiful fairy tale illustration. You're welcome to interpret the Fairy Tale Theme in any way that you like so, whether you choose to create something worthy of the wicked queen or a sparkling Swarovski encrusted tiara - we want to see it! 

At the end of the month, we'll be sharing everyone's entries here on the blog and choosing one winner at random to receive a £15 voucher code for The Bead Shop Liverpool's new website.


Does It Have To Be My Own Design? 
Not at all. We are happy for you to use designs from books, magazines or tutorials - or include elements inspired by other designers. However, we do ask that you remember to credit the designers when sending us your entries. 

Do You Accept Entries From Outside The UK? 
The Bead Shop Liverpool mails internationally so, yes, we are happy to except entries from outside the UK! 

When's The Deadline For Entries? 
The deadline for entries is the 25th of August 2013. Entries received after the 25th August will not be counted. We'll be sharing all entries on the blog - and announcing the winner - on the 28th August 2013. 

And How Do I Enter? 
Please send an e-mail to and include your name, e-mail address, details of your design and, of course, a photograph!
