National Craft Month Giveaway WEEK 1

***CONTEST IS CLOSED*** 
Winner to be announced shortly!

So the Beaducation team sat down and thought about what a month dedicated to crafting might signify. The first thing we thought of was education; the art of teaching something new. After all "education" ("eaducation" if you are being technical) is in our name.

We educate our customers in many ways. Whether it's through super-detailed product descriptions, our free product videos, free classes, or classes from the best instructors in the business; we do our very best to bring you the latest knowledge in the jewelry world.
So the first giveaway is... a Beaducation class of your choice. With over 60 different classes to choose from, it might be difficult to choose just one, but we think you are up to the challenge.


To win, leave a comment on this post letting us know what class you would like if you were the lucky winner.


You can earn extra chances of winning this great prize. Post a link to this blog post (not just the blog) on your blog, Facebook page, or your Twitter feed about this National Craft Month giveaway.  

Let us know in a separate comment on this post. (So if you comment once you have one entry.  Then comment again for each social media link that you made for additional entries to win. One comment with all of the places you reposted, FB'ed and Twittered will just get you one entry.)

The winner will be chosen by random drawing on Monday, March 7. The next contest starts Tuesday, March 8.


Okay gang...let's get crafting!

Lilies and Leaves would be my pick! I could be #1 in the comments...but I don't know if #1 ever wins so hopefully I am a couple numbers down!
Love your website and thanks for the free videos also - its a great way to test how the video works for people before they sign up for a class.

I would take the Intro to Soldering class. Fire is occasionally my friend (I took a local fusing class - but haven't done it in a while) - when I can find a place to play with it where there is no wind. Love your videos and instructions!

Rosalynn said...

I would love the "Introduction to Soldering" class. I have been wanting to learn to solder for the longest time and winning a class would definitely increase the likelihood that I will jump right in.

Virginia said...

I'm eagerly awaiting my 1st order containing my tools so I can try my first class. I would love to try the Byzantine Sunburst Necklace class.

marla said...

open round chainmalle would be my pick. am just starting chainmalle and i think your classes are made very easy to follow. thank you.

Shirley said...

So hard to pick just one! I really like the wire framed beads and the Beadily Dee. I'd love to do the Lilies and Leaves, but I have to stick with the tools I already have. You have some wonderful classes.

Noahs Ark Creations said...

I would love to do either the soldering class or the riveting class. Both create such beautiful pieces!

sallyh12 said...

I think the torch enameling would be the one I choose. But, I would love to do them all. As it's slowly showing signs of Spring I'm beginning to feel some creative urges coming through. Bring it on!

maryheather said...

Twisted knoted fused!

Though I have to say I would enjoy and learn something from just about any class you offer!
The ones I have purchased have been extrememely effective and useful to me. THANKS!

maryheather said...

TWISTED, Knotted, and FUSED!

Although I am certain that any class of yours would provide me with inspiration & information I don't currently have!
I have enjoyed all the classes I have purchased. They have all been effective and informative. AND I love that i can watch them over and over! AS MY SKILLS IMPROVE, I find that I take differnt things from the class.

Judith W said...

Like several other posters, I'd go for Lilies and Leaves. It's a beautiful project, and I know Janice is a great teacher, having taken a couple of her classes at Beadfests in the past.

Judith W said...

OK, just posted the link to my Facebook page.

The Herringbone Bezel Pendant would be my first choice! It is tough to decide of course. Thanks for all your help with everything. Now that I found your website I get a lot less sleep...dreaming in silver!

Oh, it'd be hard to pick one. Many intersting projects and many techniques I want to learn, like wire fusing, soldering and torch enamelling. But I think I'd choose Lilies and Leaves as it looks very interesting.

maneki said...

Teri said...

I'm so late because of broken puters! Well since I just recently purchased everything to learn to solder, it would make sense to take the soldering class! But I do so love those first earrings in the blog, Lisa's earrings. so if I win, you guys could surprise me! I would be happy with either!
