'October' (The Monthly Challenge)

On the 1st of each 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! 

With so much going on in October we decided to let the challenge be just that, 'October'. So whether you're inspired by the scary but fun Halloween, kicking the beautiful brown/red leaves falling from the trees in welly boots or the clocks going back and giving us that extra hour in bed, we want to see your designs that have been inspired by October. Designs must be made especially for the challenge.

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 October 2013. Entries received after the 25th October will not be counted. We'll be sharing all entries on the blog - and announcing the winner - on the 28th October 2013. 

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

Can we just do lampwork beads or does it need to be a complete piece of jewellery?

Hi Laney, Lampwork beads are also accepted.
