Facebook Giveaway!

***Contest Closed. Winner announced shortly!***

One of the things that I just love about social media is that it brings people from all places and spaces together in a common meeting space.

Our favorite place to meet up with customers is our Facebook page with over 5000 fans. That means we get to interact daily with our customers all over the world. We really love it and have made some great "cyberfriends".

We are always ready to answer your questions, but you can also find great advice from other Beaducation Facebookers. When readers post a question on the FB wall, it usually gets answered pretty quickly, if not by us then by one of your fellow designers.

Are you familiar with our discussions tab on our FB page? The discussion tab is located in the left side bar of our fan page. There are all sorts of cool tips and tricks over there. From a long discussion on polishing metal to good advice about soldering, the chatter is going on over there!

Chatter isn't the only thing happening on the discussion page, though. We would like to announce our first Facebook giveaway!


Here is the quick backstory. Keona, one of our FB fans and frequent poster asked some questions about how to make a soldered ring band. We had chatted back and forth and I thought that she would be a perfect person to review our class on DVD Soldered Rings and Bezels. Keona is a busy lady with wife and mom duties but eagerly agreed to watch the DVD and share her opinion with you.


Here is a bit about Keona:

"My name is Keona and I am a 22 year old mother to Noah, my 2.5 yr old, and two angel babies who are the drive and inspiration behind my pieces. I started out simply beading and came across Beaducation by chance. When I saw that I could learn how to make stamped pieces with such meaning, I ordered a kit.

Its been a year now and I am still going strong. I am a proud wife to a new Army officer, prepping for a move, a shop owner and a mother to an amazing boy. If I can bring the slightest comfort to someone, I have done my job right and will keep on working."

You can read more about Keona on her blog mynoahsarkcreations.com   and check out her work in her online shop bynoahsarkcreations.com.

Her review of the DVD is up and over on our Facebook page under the discussion tab. If you would like to win a Beaducation DVD class of your choice all you need to do is click on over, and check out Keona's review, "like" our page and hop back over to this post and leave a comment on which DVD you'd like to win.

On Monday, August 8 at 9AM PST we'll pick a winner at random for the DVD of your choice. For extra chances to win, help spread the word through your social media outlets (FB, Twitter, your blog), link back to this post and leave a comment below for each. One comment equals one entry.

Good luck and we'll see you on Facebook!

Checked out the review. I already "like" your page. Other than having the Lilies and Leaves class I already have online on DVD, I'd like to have the Torch Enameling DVD. I think it would be great.

Hi! I "liked" your page a long time ago! I'd like the Wire Jewelry Fundamentals DVD.

Torch Enameling DVD would be great!

Alison Kelley said...

I Facebooked and Tweeted! I have all the tools needed to do the soldering rings but am in need of instruction and motivation, would love to win these DVD's. Thank you!

SolanaKaiDesigns said...

Good for Keona! I love seeing young women taking bold steps forward into new areas of their lives. As for a DVD, I am torn between the Stamped Metal Jewelry book/dvd as I have always wanted to learn how to do stamping and the wire jewelry fundamentals, as I need to improve my wire skills. SO if I am lucky enough to be chosen, I will leave it up to you as to which one to send me. I love surprises!

Nancy said...

Liked your page, I'm torn between Riveting DVD and Torch Enameling class on DVD with Steven James.

It is really hard to decide, but if I had to choose one, it would be "Introduction to Riveting."

Christine said...

Hello! I "liked" your page. Just finished the Metal Fold Forming class. It was great as all of your classes are. I am wearing my first fold formed bracelet! Would love the Intro to Riveting or Soldered Rings and Bezels. Just couldn't make a decision!

Lindy said...

Hi - I'm just starting out. The introduction to Soldering DVD would be awesome. Thanks for having such a wonderful website and blog.

Great review, Keona! I'm torn between two dvd's: soldered rings and bezels and torch enameling. This is such a great giveaway!

urracaa.com said...

All the tutorials are so wonderful. I like the torch enameling one. At Beadfest Santa Fe I couldn't take Steven James'class because I couldn't haul all the needed equipment with me from overseas. This is a good chance to catch up.

Bridgette said...

Hard to pick just one. But intro to soldering would have to be the first.
Thanks

DebS said...

Oh, any of these would great, but the Simple Soldered Pendant & Soldered Rim Pendant look like a lot of fun. Thanks for the opportunity.
