  1. I love gun metal. because of the color.


  2. I love bronze. I'm a fan of all things old-timey so the darker patina a metal has the more I like it. Steampunk, Art Neuveau, Art Deco, and the Oriental craze are my inspirations.

    That saying - this is probably my favorite bead soup you've ever done. Turquoise has a fond history in my family, since we lived near the Navajo Indian Reservation and were exposed to it a lot. I think every member in my family has at least one jewelry piece (if not more) that is turquoise. My grandfather made mine.

  3. My favorite metal bead color has to be silver.

  4. Favorite metal is antique copper. Very earthy. Happy weekend to you Mortira.

  5. Thanks for the great giveaway.
    I have so many but if I had to pick one it would be ice blue and bronze.

  6. I have to admit that Sterling Silver is my favorite metallic bead color. It really depends on what beads I'm using and whether the gold accent or silver appeals to me the best.

  7. I have always loved sterling silver!

  9. Gunmetal coloring is my favorite, because it goes with all of my favorite rock and roll looks!!!

  11. I love those colors, and I would love to win them!

  12. If there is such a color, I love metal beads that are irridescient (hope I spelled it correctly). I love the way all the colors come out and be matched with any other colors and still look great.


  13. copper - I love copper! zillah1199(at)aol(dot)com

  14. I have always loved silver and wear it most of the time ,, but i have been using a lot of copper !

  15. My fovorite metallic bead color right now is reddish copper. I am in love with it! (It goes great with silver and turquoise too!)


  16. WOWEE!!! Turquoise and gold, what a wonderful giveaway!!! Of course, copper and silver look great with turquoise, too. it's my birthstone, being a Dec. baby. (long, long ago...)
    FAVORITE METAL has to be gold, with the copper and silver close bhind. Shiny or antique are ok on all 3 metals.
    If the metal is faux, I think antiqued copper looks best, followed by bronze.

    I love Egyptian jewelry, "murals",
    the columns, elaborately decorated...etc., and was glad to read/see your Egyptian columns.

    Am keeping my fingers crossed,
    and THANK YOU for the giveaway!!!

  18. Copper because it matches my hair color. :-)

  19. Silver has always been my favorite. Thanks for a chance to win some wonderful beads.

  20. My favorite metal bead color is sterling silver, although lately I am really loving copper too!


  21. I love silver, bright, brushed or antiqued.

  22. I like all antique finishes. I do like antique gold the best, but have not found a lot of components in that finish :(

  23. Your giveaways are always so beautiful, thank you.

    My favorite bead color is bright red. It accents so many other colors and changes the look of anything it's in.

    Have a great Memorial Day weekend.


  24. Wow, that's a tough one. I love all rocks, minerals. But especially silver...and turuoise

  25. Scrumptous picture! I love metallic beads, mostly silver as they go with my Harley riding gear, and (all shades) blue is my favorite color!

  26. This is a hard one, because I like most metals. But to choose only one, I would have to say silver.

    I tend to gravitate towards the blues when I look at beads so your bead soup really caught my eye.
    Thank you for a great giveaway.

    Have a great day!

  27. My favorite is probably gold, most of my jewelry metal is gold. Thanks for this great opportunity! Lana Cisinski

  28. I would have to say rose ox. It's kind of an antique looking copper. I also like bronze,gold and silver. lol

  29. My favorite metal color is gunmetal.

    That is a lovely collection of beads. Thank you for having a giveaway.

  30. What a great giveaway. Thank you for having it. My favorite metal is copper. I like how you can alter the shades of it with patina. or

  31. Hello Mortira,
    That is a lovely selection in your bead soup. I have just recently discovered your website (through Allfreebeading, I think) and am very impressed with your designs. I am newly come to beading and find myself a big fan of seed beading but also mixed media, crochet or knitting or tatting with beads and so on!! I'm hard pressed to pick favourites, although I tend to gravitate towards blues, tourquoise and teals and I love to bead with metallics for that subtle play of irridescence across the colour palette. I would have to say they would be my favourite. Anyway, just want to say thank you for your lovely website. It definitely lives up to it's name. I am Marchia in Montreal at Hope you had a good weekend.

  32. Great giveaway, I love blue and silver.

  33. I love all the metallic colors but gunmetal would have to be my favorite pick to use in my beadwork!

  34. I love copper!! The bright and antique. It's not used very often in pieces that I've seen and I love its uniqueness. It becomes its own creature and patinas. That gives it a second life and a new beginning.
