Bead Giveaway: Rectangles

This week I have a fantastic collection of rectangular acrylic beads to give away - the colors are so bright and juicy, perfect for spring and summer designs. Most of these pieces were saved and collected not only for their fun shapes, but for their gemstone hues as well.

Acrylic Rectangle Bead Giveaway


My favorites are the chiclets, which I had always hoped to pair up with teal colored cord and pearl knots for a floating necklace. There are also several rectangular tubes in the colors of coral, jade, turquoise, and transparent gray, with a few metallic gold as well. Just for fun, I’ve added some two-hole rectangular sliders and a beautiful acrylic filigree component in jade green.

Vintage Bead Giveaway


How to Enter

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

What is your favorite color for spring inspired designs?

If you do not have a Blogger profile with email contact enabled, please make sure to include a contact link or email address, so I can get in touch with you if you win! One lucky reader will be drawn at random on Tuesday, April 17th. This giveaway is open to readers from Canada and the US.

Good luck, and happy beading!

  2. I have two favorite colors-

    Shades of green, because where I am (near the Wasatch Mountains) everything slowly turns a beautiful green. You can literally watch the green climb the mountains!

    Shades of blue - because my favorite color is blue, and I personally think it goes with any season. And probably because blue is a cool color which is perfect for the coming hot days of Spring/Summer!

  5. My favourite colour for this Spring is ice blue. I've really fallen in love with that colour, even though it evokes a feeling of chiliness, I like the lightness of it for Spring.

  15. When I moved to Michigan, what astounded me most about the spring is the violets. The abundance of them, the fact that they just grow WILD in everyone's yards, on roadsides, in pastures... And that they weren't all violet. Purples, whites and yellows abounded at our old house. Now that we've moved we have a patch of fantastic mauve in our front yard, and in our neighborhood there are lovely white violets with delicate purple stripes. They make a lovely spring palette all put together!

  58. Well, I was going to say green as most people that have looked at their comments agree. So, now I'm going to have to say the color of a Moon stone. It's opalesnce reminds me of the white fluffy clouds that come during the spring time and makes me feel at one with the air above us. The air can bring clouds for shade or rain or even just a nice brezzy day during the spring times.
