Bead Giveaway: Spring Mixes

It’s been far too long since we’ve had a gorgeous bead giveaway. With pretty new inspirations flowing in from now until summer, I thought I’d take a look through my stash of lovely acrylic and lucite baubles for some spring worthy beads. I was thrilled to recall some really wonderful ovals in tasty colors that look so much like flower petals and leaves.

Spring Ovals Bead Giveaway


Equally enchanting is a mix of stone shapes in blues, with a dash of green and purple. Most of these pieces have totally unique shapes, and are delightfully transparent and full of light. These beads would look right at home in a secret garden, and now it’s time to find them a new home.

  18. The oval spring mix looks like they are begging to be assembled into an array of coneflowers (coneflower varieties these days are amazing). The blues remind me of my Rozanne geranium, so I would mix them with a lush green background to remind me of my garden.

  30. I love tiger lillies. I would put them & white roses in my beaded garden. Thanks for the bead giveaway.

  31. I would make a garden with several rows, each a different color for a different flower, and then I would put the beads on little sticks and plant them with the colors peeking the ground. And when they bloom, I would have even more pretty colored beads and could make myself some wonderful things.
    I would take a cup of coffee and my lawn chair and sit out in my bead garden in the sunshine waiting for them to multiply.
