Bead Giveaway: Lapis Leopard

I have some more fantastic beads to giveaway! After all of the time I’ve spent hoarding these baubles, it’s surprisingly liberating to send them off to new homes. This next set is actually a combination of two small collections.

First, we have some delightful round nuggets that have a spotted pattern in brown and gold, like a pretty leopard coat. They range in size from about 10 to 14 mm, and have a lovely, organic shape.

Lapis Leopard Bead Giveaway


The blue beads are some of my all time favorites. Many of them ended up in my special stash because their speckled finish resembles lapis lazuli - an Egyptian favorite. There are a few acrylic cabochons in the set, as well as some cobalt and turquoise blue pieces.

How to Enter:

For a chance to win all of the beads shown, leave a comment on this post, and answer the following question:

What is your favorite animal print for beads, fashion, or décor?

One lucky winner will be drawn at random on Wednesday, February 22nd. If you don’t have a Blogger profile with email contact enabled, please be sure to leave a contact link in your comment, so I can get in touch with you if you win! This giveaway is open to readers from Canada and the US.

Good luck, and happy beading!

  2. Gorgeous beads! I love the rich colors.

    For animal prints, I would have to go with something striped.

    Have a great weekend.

  3. My favorite animal print comes from the giraffe. It's a nice big print but yet each "dot" is not the same nor symmetrical. These beads look like they are a lot of fun. Thanks for the chance to win them!

  8. I would have to say the Jaguar because of their yellow to gold coat with black rosettes. The black markings remind me of a paw print. I also like that their under belly is much lighter almost white with black. Overall they are a classy big (and fast) feline with classic coloring that remains forever in style.

  9. Wow, I've never thought of that before. It's a really cool question. I think my favorite would have to be zebra. I like the contrast with the black and the white. Simple and elegant.

  15. I'd have a hard time choosing between zebra and giraffe. But I'm mostly a blue-and-white girl, decor-wise, and those speckled blue beads really speak to me! Would love to win, thanks!

  25. I'm not really a fan of animal prints, but there is a hat my niece wants me to make for her, and I really like it. It's jaguar, I believe. I like that one, and even giraffe, for some weird reason. ^_^

  27. I hope this counts as an "animal print," but I love, love, love peacock feathers

  28. Thanks for the wonderful giveaway. I am a cat lover, big and small, and bead weaver and am always on the lookout for cat patterns. My latest piece was a leopard print peyote stitch bracelet in shades of turquoise and bronze. These beads would look great in bezels.
