Giveaway: Christmas Bead Palettes

Blue Steel Round Bead Mix

Yesterday we had a look at some trios of Christmas beads in red, white and green. Although the combination has instant appeal for anyone who loves the season, as Margie Deeb would tell you, holiday color palettes have a lot more to offer than just those three classics.

One of my favorite holiday color schemes is blue and silver, which is why I used it as one of the palettes for my custom destash mixes. The glow of transparent cobalt pairs so well with shiny silver, and would look great on a Christmas tree or holiday table setting.

Now that I’m giving my ArtFire studio the attention it deserves, I’ve decided not to have a destash section. Instead, I want to share some of these beads collections with Inspirational Beading readers!

Just in time for holiday crafts, I’m giving away my “Blue Steel” and “Red Carpet” bead mixes, with assorted lucite and acrylic pieces. There are plenty of unique shapes in cobalt, silver, red, and gold, with a hint of black and orange as well.

  1. Ooh, definitely the Blue Steel. :)


  2. I actually have two, I do love cobalt and silver, but I also love burgundy and gold

  3. While I use and love the more traditional reds and golds in my home, there's a special place in my heart for the blues and silvers.

    wildwoodflwr at gmail is my e-mail for when I win! :P

  4. My favorite holiday color scheme would have to be red with gold. This is closely followed by blue and gold and green and gold. Something in the "and gold" just makes everything feel warmer.


  5. Definitely burgundy (think garnets) combined with gold and black. Classic. Romantic. Perfect for the holidays!

  6. Please include me in the giveaway!!!

    I love an icy look, so I love white with silver and a pale blue. I'm from upstate NY, but have lived in areas without real winters for almost 10 years now. I love my winter look in the form of colors without any of the wind chill factor!


  7. I love royal blue with silver.

  8. My favorite color is blue but I like to make my home warm for the winter, especially in colors - so I lean to more red and gold. Accents of blue and black hint at coals which I like.

  9. I'd love a chance to enter your giveaway. My all time favorite holiday color scheme is burgundy & hunter green.

  10. My favorite would be silver and gold mixed with red and green. They all sparkle so well together! This time I remembered to follow you!

  11. This is my first visit to your blog whilst looking for some Christmas beading inspiration! Your work is beautiful!
    I think my favourite colour combo for Christmas is red and gold when it comes to jewellery - something a bit sparkly too!

    Will visit again soon and follow on my blog!
