And The Winners Are…

Posted by Matt on March 02 at 07:13 pm

We have our winners in the How Many Strands in the Bin contest.


Although no one guessed the exact number of strands in the bin, there were a lot of you that were very close. The correct number of strands in the bin was 592. Now, let’s see who the winners are!

First Place: Brandy B with 591

The winner of the $25 Lima Beads Gift Certificate and the “Crystal Cavern” Geode is Brandy B! She was only one strand away from the correct answer! Congratulations Brandy B!

Second Place: Chiska C with 582

There were a couple of beaders who guessed 582 strands, but Chiska C was the first. Chiska C. will be receiving a $15 Lima Beads Gift Certificate and the poppy jasper gemstone fish. Congrats Chiska C!

Third Place: D Hogan, also with 582!

The race for the third place prize was our most competitive… and confusing! After flipping through the rule book a few times, D Hogan claims the third place prize because he or she had the second guess of 582. As it states in the rules, if there is a tie, the person that guessed it first, wins! D Hogan gets the awesome red jasper owl.

Thank you to everyone that guessed. We had a ton of fun with this contest and we hope that you did too. You can look forward to more fun contests like this in the future.

Coming Soon…

The Scavenger Hunt!!!!

    I think it’d be cool to have a gallery for Lima beader’s jewelry! I’d love to see what others do with their Lama beads, especially the stampt metal pieces.

    Congratulations to the winners. I think a gallery of pieces made with the Lima Beads purchases is an excellent idea. A good way to share ideas.

    I agree that a gallery of designs would not only be a great way to share ideas but it would be a great way for us to support one another with comments. I need a jolt to get designing again…I am sort of just moving the beads around at this point!

    The contest was so much fun, thanks Matt. I agree that a design gallery would be great. Sometimes you can look at a new piece and need a little something to get the imagination going on how you would like to use it.Then we can get feedback from each other about it.
