The January Challenge

Happy new year beaders and welcome to the first challenge of 2015. We have a whole year of beading challenges lined up ready to inspire you to get creative and Tackle That Bead Stash! We're kicking the new year off with a theme and we'd like you to create something INSPIRED BY A SONG.

This can be any song of your choice, it does not have to be a popular or well known song and can be from any genre or decade. You can use the title and/or what the song is about to inspire your piece, it is up to you. Let us know the name of the song and the singer/group as we will be including this with your photo on the blog post. Please note that nursery rhymes etc. will not be accepted for this challenge.

This month our sponsor is Celia and she's offering £15 to spend in her online shop Jencel!

Simply email a photograph of your entry to Liz at along with any other info we have asked for. The challenge runs until Midnight on Saturday the 31st of January and the winner is drawn and announced the following day. You can email your entry at any time during the month. The challenge is open to beaders worldwide.

Entries must have been started on or after January 1st 2015.
You can make any item, it does not need to be jewellery.
You can use any craft technique but it must include beads.
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 further questions about the challenge please feel free to email us at!

Good luck everyone and happy beading!
