June Challenge

Welcome to the June Challenge! The theme for this challenge is:

Wander where you will.

Puerto Pollensa, Mallorca 2015.

There are so many wonderful, fascinating countries in this world of ours each with a unique history, intriguing traditions and a sense of beauty of their own. For this challenge I'd like you to take a virtual trip around the Globe, stick a pin on a map or lose a few hours on Google to choose a country that interests you and bead a piece inspired by anything about that country that tickles your fancy! You can find a list of sovereign states on Wikipedia to start you off on your journey.

Please include the name of your chosen country and a short paragraph on your inspiration so that we can all learn a little more about our world.

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

Email a photograph of your entry to Sarah at along with any other details we have asked for. The challenge runs until Midnight on Friday the 30th of June 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 June 1st 2017.
  • 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.
  • The photo above is for decorative purposes only, please refer to the text below it for details on the theme or colours allowed.

There is more detailed information on the challenge here but if you have any questions please leave a comment below or email us. 

Good luck everyone and happy beading!
