  3. Violet Lined 11/0 (2.1mm) Preciosa Rocaille Seed Beads, I am on the lookout for beads I feel will help me in making jewelry with the 2014 color of the year, Radiant Orchid. I think this color will work very well in doing this. I do a lot of bead embroidery work and this size 11 is essential. Thanks for the chance to win beads. Carolyn Turner, gitksanfire@yahoo.com

  10. I find myself drawn to their neon green twins. Not a color palate I usually work with, but I keep gravitating toward them :) Maybe I am longing for spring.

  13. I don't know how I found you tonight but I cannot believe your beautiful beads and patterns. I have dabbled in bead weaving some years ago but am now itching to get back into it. Wow! I love all your beads - so many colors, and I've never seen double hole beads before - neat!
    I could not find a favorite color - I kept changing my mind the further down the page I went. All so beautiful. I go for the brighter colors tho the pastels and neutrals are lovely too. Too much to choose from. So glad I found you.

  17. Magenta has always been my favorite color and that would always be the first color I would use in the big box of crayons when I was a child. I am intrigued by the magenta jet twin beads on the Best Beads website. Thanks for the chance to try out twin beads. I hope you have a wonderful day!

  30. There were so many to choose from I finally did a search for my favorite "green" and found a beautiful Iris green 10/0 rocaille. Another result was a yellow with green and red stripes that I would just love to find out what they want to be. Also while browsing around in the tablecut area I saw some picaso I would drool over in my horde ( not the stash).

  31. My favourites are Sherry Red Natural Opaque 9/0 Preciosa Rocaille Seed Beads. Beautiful lush colour, not too bright and good size.

    Are those Cyan and Olive Twins at the giveaway set new colours, look good, havent seen those green shades at my local web shops. You can never have too much green seed beads!

  32. I'm normally a purple and green girl (love the prize beads!) but for some reason I kept being drawn to the Neon Pink 5x2.5mm Duet Seed Beads. I shouldn't be too surprised, though - I am a real 80s girl after all ;)

  41. Oh my, they have so many it's very hard to chose a favorite. There were some I hadn't even seen before. I love the seed beads, rocailles and twins, and I want to try the "Piggy Beads" someday! Would love to win these, on social security, can't always buy all the beads I would love to have!!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Difficult to pick a favorite! They have a great selection of Twin, Duet, Super Duos, and the jet magenta twins look especially nice. Thanks for sharing the link - it's new to me!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Oh what a choice! I absolutely love anything that is purple at the moment, so there are far to many to choose between. I have yet to try experimenting with the twin hole - so it would be great if I was a lucky winner. But good luck to all and envy to the one who wins.

  53. As an artist, I am totally enthralled with color. Imagine my surprise when the following jumped into my imagination...Copper with magenta and grey, copper lined and jet olive. The super duo beads are fun and I am also in love with seed beads in size 11 and 15. So many possibilities !!!

  54. My absolute most favorite, and if i could choose only one style and color bead, it would be the Jet Cyan Preciosa twin bead. Neon is not in my palette but because these yell summer to me, I am drawn to the matt neon beads, all styles, but especially the matt neon pink. And then the transparent colors are nice... I just want them all.

    Thank you for this wonderful give away and should I win, I can be reached via email.
