The March Challenge

Welcome to the March challenge! It's theme time again and this month we would like you to be inspired by one of GRIMM'S FAIRY TALES.

Your choice of fairy tale MUST be from >>THIS LIST<< of fairy tales from the Brothers Grimm for your entry to be accepted. When you email your entry please let us know the name of the fairy tale you chose from the list and what inspired you.

This month our sponsor is Davida and she's offering £15 to spend in her online shop Old Bicycle Shop!

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 Tuesday the 31st of March 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 March 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.
