The December Challenge

Welcome to the December challenge. We hope that you've enjoyed this year's challenges and felt inspired to join in with some of them. We're finishing 2014 with a choose-your-own colour scheme and we're inviting you to be inspired by a DESIGN SEEDS PALETTE of your choice!

Images by Design Seeds

You do not have to choose from the the images above, this is just a very small selection of the many palettes available. Click here to go to the Design Seeds website. Once you've chosen your Design Seed, use the palette as your inspiration using as many or as few of the colours as you wish and try to get your beads as close as you can to the shades. You may compliment the shades with lighter and darker tones if you wish but please do not use any colours that aren't in your chosen palette.

This month our sponsor is Valentina and she's offering £25 to spend in her shop Beads and More by Yashma!

Simply email a photograph of your entry, AND the photo of the Design Seed you used, to Liz at The challenge runs until Midnight on Wednesday the 31st of December and the winner is drawn and announced on New Year's Day. The challenge is open to beaders worldwide.

Entries must have been started on or after December 1st 2014.
You can make any item, it does not need to be jewellery.
You can use any craft technique but it must include beads.
Findings are exempt from the colour challenge.
Your entry must be a finished piece.
If your entry isn't your own design you must credit the original designer.

If you have any questions at all please email us!

Good luck everyone and happy beading!
