I am so happy for the last winner. I think my favorite stamps may be the pets ones we got in email recently.I think when I finally break down and start my new hobby I have to get those stamps first.

Heidi said...

My first beaded necklace was inspired by some beautiful 8mm Lapis beads a friend gave me years ago. I decided to restring the beads and add some sterling accents. I fell in love with the tactile experience of laying out the beads and then stringing them; I even enjoyed fumbling with crimp tubes and covers. I used a prefab toggle clasp, but quickly decided to add more artistry by making my own findings. Beaducation has been a big part of my learning and growing, as I said in an email I wrote to Lisa – such clean, well-paced instruction on the videos and on the website. Beaducation is my go-to source for expertise and products. Thanks.

I love my Beaducation lower case kismet stamp set!

Lee Anne Messerschmidt said...

Love Beaducation !! What a fabulous giveaway this month ... you girls Rock !

Dotty said...

My favorite stamp is actually a category repeat her than an individual stamp. It is owls. I think owls are cool and I have several owl stamps. I like a lot of Beaducation stamps and the Beaducation Originals are very well made and have a lot of variety and details. Stamps can create one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry. Even if several people or lots of people have the same stamps, they use them in different ways. Thanks for making such great stamps and so many different designs.

Ski Colorado said...

First piece of stamped jewelry was a square with my kids names around the outside and a tree of life medallion hanging over the center. Still one of my favorites.

Orna Willis said...

My first piece of jewelry was a necklace with a set of hearts hanging off it.

TricaJones said...

A great variety of blanks!

damedenise said...

The first piece of jewellery I ever made was some earrings out of plain clay that I painted. I was about 10-11 years old and taking a pottery course. The earrings were little moonlike faces that had a short cord that looped over my ears (I didn't have any earring hardware) and they swung around under my ears when I walked. I don't have them anymore -- I recall they were quite thin and likely got squashed to a powder during one of my family's moves (they had not been fired). Wish I did :)
Cheers Beaducation - I love your website and keep those cool metal stamps designs coming! -- Denise, Ottawa, Canada

Congratulations to Susan! Great giveaway.

My favorite stamp is the new Art Deco Fan. The first piece of jewelry I made, as a child, was a seed beaded Native American themed bracelet.

Kim Stelly said...

This is a great giveaway! I LOVE working with copper!!

Ginny Petrino said...

Hi - The first piece of jewelry I ever made was an elastic beaded bracelet YEARS AGO!!! Now I crochet and I have been making some beaded crochet necklaces - mostly Bohemian/Freeform style. Loads of fun and very relaxing. I'd love to be able to personalize them with some stamped blanks. I've never tried stamping so that would be a great addition to my pieces! Thanks again for the opportunity.

Buttercup said...

When I was a teenager I made bead weaved necklaces. When I started making jewelry again the first piece of jewelry that I made was earrings.

Patty B. said...

What a very nice give away. Thanks for the chance. Patty B.

Denise Wermer said...

My favorite Beaducation original design stamp ... I can't pick just one ... I love the dandelion with fluff, the baby owl, the sleepy owl, Sadie the cat, the spiral bracket and the little camper! Too many cute ones to choose just one!

Wendy McKenna said...

Love you guys!

Tai East said...

So excited about this giveaway! I don't know if I can pick just one stamp because I love them all! But, if I had to choose, I think the cross design stamp is my favorite! And the first piece of jewelry I made was a necklace for my niece for her 8th birthday. She absolutely loved it!:-)

cbroskey said...

It is hard to choose just one stamp as a favorite but I am going to say star(s). I use them in various designs, sizes, inside other stamps, in random patterns. They are just fun and have more than one meaning.

Alecia Woolley said...

The first piece of jewelry I made was chain link charm bracelets to celebrate an amazing trip with two friends. I was inspired and have been creating ever since.

Dawn said...

How exciting to have a craft month giveaway! What a great way to ignite our passion for jewelry making! I have already read your bestselling book on stamping, and I'm super excited about your new book! I can't wait to read it:)

Lynn Pacione-Holman said...

The first piece of jewelry I made was a beaded necklace of hematite rounds and silver rounds. Simple, classic, pretty. :)

Dawn said...

My favorite beaducation original is the spiral flower. That was one of my first stamps I bought, which was inspired by your book. I also love the paw prints, but haven't bought them yet.

Debbie Turk said...

Love all of your stamps...hard to pick just one...I always get a good impression

Corrine Radergraham said...

My first piece of handmade jewelry was a candy necklace made in Brownie Scouts.

Aubree said...

I'm pretty sure the first piece of jewelry I ever made was a hemp necklace with polymer clay beads. I loved those!

Melody said...

I made earrings in a class at a local bead shop. I want to take more classes there.

Cecelia Knott said...

My first real piece of jewelry was a two wrap bracelet. That was made of leather an glass beads. Unfortunately the glass beads were cheap and the paint came off.

I am now getting started with metal stamping. If I won this, it would definitely help me get better!!

Thanks for offering this!

Paula Michalowski said...

Nice package of goodies. Thanks for these giveaways, it's a great way to advertise your products too.

Ever since I found beaducation I have been obsessed with them! I've learned so much about jewelry making and can't wait to learn more :-)

Donna Fanelli said...

My first piece of jewelry that I made was a copper bracelet. Since then I have watched countless videos to make other sterling silver rings, earrings and pendants. Thanks Beaducation!

Chandra Handeland said...

I love a lot of the design stamps. My favorite right now is the arrow stamp.

Milly Winter said...

esbeads said...

I've been making jewelry since I was little. In high school I would paint gummy bears with clear nail polish to make pins.
Trying again as my comment from yesterday is not showing

Kimberly Finn said...

What a wonderful giveaway! I made my first piece of jewelry just over two years ago. My mother had just passed away and we had beads made out of some her funeral flowers. The company that made the beads also offered to make jewelry out of them, but I decided to try and make my own. I made a remembrance necklace that I cherish very much. I enjoyed it so much that I kept on learning and creating, and now I am considering a home business!

Shannon said...

I made an inspirational necklaces for all my students graduating from high school. They loved them and I still see some of the wearing them today! This was several years ago! The craft ideas and tools I get from here are the best!

Ariel Hayden said...

The first pieces of jewelry I made over 30 years ago was a set with earrings, bracelet and necklace with stones at a bead store. I was hooked. Now I have a small business.

belinda Trimble said...

Although I really like the tree of life it's hard to say which is my favorite. I love them all.

Christine said...

My favorite Beaducation stamp is the large leaf and the large feather. I use them in many different applications.

Alice Dyer said...

Great idea for lots of fun

Maria Robinson said...

The first piece of jewelry that I made was a pair of earrings that were part chain- maille part mother of pearl chip, they had come out so much better than I had expected them to, I was thrilled.

Katie Midkiff said...

The paw!!! 🐾

FeatheredGems said...

I think the first piece of real jewelry I ever made was a 'liquid silver' style beaded necklace I made back in the 70s. And my favorite Beaducation stamp is the Union Jack flag stamp which I just ordered. My dog's name is Union Jack. :)

Medea Rausch said...

The first piece of jewelry I ever made was the bracelet is wore for my wedding. I got so frustrated that I couldn't find any of the right shades of blue so I decided to just do it myself. It's still my favorite piece to this very day and that was almost 9 years ago. My first stamped piece was for a very dear friend who had recently miscarried. I had the stamps for months and decided that was the right moment to get them out.

Charlee said...

Since I already talked about my first jewelry - my 2nd jewelry making enterprise was with the Tumble Stones kit I got for Christmas when I was 9 or 10. I made a ring for my mom, which she still has, brooches for my grandmothers and tie bars for my dad & grandfathers.

Mary Helgesen said...

Myfirst[ieceof jewelry was a simple strung bracelet.

Betsy Chamberlain said...

My first piece was a simple wire heart pendant in brass. The heart I made ended up becoming my logo!

riley said...

The first piece of jewelry I ever made were pearl and silver dangle earrings. A common design, but I was so impressed with myself!🤗

Silver Penny Artisans said...

I agree with Riley...there is so much satisfaction in making your own jewelry!!!

Carole Lewis said...

Yes would love this... Thanks beaducation!

Heather Gray said...

The first thing I stamped was a keychain. I am still very much a beginner ��

Lorna Elizabeth said...

My favorite Beaducation Original stamp(s) has to be the Broken Arrow!
As for the first piece of "jewelry" I ever made, it must have been some macrame satin cord friendship bracelet for my then-5th grader daughter :)

Bonnie Kyles said...

My first project was a wire brooch that my sister walked me through.

The McCarter Family said...

My first piece of stamped jewelry was about four years ago and I made a mothers necklace with my childs name on it.

m.g.v said...

Hi! My favorite Beaducation Original Stamp is the first stamp I ever bought: the robot design. It's really cute and very original. People always ask me where I bought it. It was a great purchase to start the stamping technique.

Connie said...

Scrappin Bella said...
