THE TWIST: This month the twist is NO JEWELLERY! There are so many other things you can make using beads: works of art, bookmarks, decorations, key rings, pens, perfume bottles, stitch markers, wine charms, bag charms to name just a few. Remember this is entirely optional but if you create something other than jewellery in our colour scheme then you will receive two entries into the draw!

THE PRIZE:
This month our sponsor is Valentina and she's offering £25 to spend in her shop Beads & More By Yashma!

HOW TO ENTER:
Simply email a photograph of your entry to Liz at ottbs@live.com. The challenge runs until Midnight on Sunday 31st of August and the winner is drawn and announced the following day. The challenge is open to beaders worldwide.

RULES & OTHER INFORMATION:
Entries must have been started on or after August 1st 2014.
You can use any technique but it must include beads.
You must use all of the challenge colours unless otherwise stated (findings are exempt).
Your entry must be a finished piece.
If your entry isn't your own design you must credit the original designer.

Good luck everyone and happy beading!

I saw a kids sewing display in the library today...one of the items perked my interest and got me thinking 'could I do something like that with beads?' I've got to get out some pink and purple and give it a go. Jeanne Evans
