The Annual Gift Giveaway is Here!

Posted by Kevin on November 25 at 01:32 pm

It’s that time of year again. Starting tomorrow, the holiday season is officially in full swing. We’ll eat great meals, give and receive some gifts, and hang out with friends and family. All of the lucky Lima Beaders get to do one more thing every holiday season — they get to choose FREE BEADS with every order they place at Lima Beads. We do it every year to say thanks for another great year and for helping us make the Lima Beads web site a special place.


We’ve got some great gifts this year. We’ve expanded the number of selections to as many as 8 per level. With any order you can get Stampt Metal, Vintaj, TierraCast, or choose from some great gemstones. If you spend $75 or more, your choices include: olive green or pearly white pearls, Green Girl Studios, African green jasper, or some awesome smoky quartz nuggets.

Sapphire CZ

Sapphire CZ

Get up to $150 and it really gets interesting. We’ve got the most popular piece of Green Girl Studios pewter (owl), amethyst (A) round 8mm, big gorgeous pearls, and two pieces of CZ never before seen on the Lima Beads site. This is the only way to get them. A lot of people ask for sapphire blue and ruby color CZ and the fact is, it’s just too expensive to carry. We ordered samples this past year and they’re gorgeous, but we’ve decided not to sell them, but we thought, why not give them to our customers?!

Tanzanite Rondelles

Tanzanite Rondelles

If you get all the way to $300, you can get the coolest toggle clasp I’ve ever seen (Green Girl Shibuichi), Mexican fire agate nuggets, or (and I’ve saved the best for last) a strand of blinding tanzanite faceted rondelles.

See All The Gifts

Again, thanks for being with us this year. Lima Beads has grown a lot with full lines of chain, metal beads, and findings. The Lima community has also grown, which is shown by more than 2,000 gorgeous designs in the design gallery.

Next year, we plan to keep pushing forward with more stringing material, more silver, and a Stampt Metal surprise that is going to provide you with hours of fun.

Thanks again everyone. Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving!

    I feel like the staff at Lima Beads is an extension of my own circle of family and friends. Thank you very much for the wonderful gifts, but the best gift is the whole experience here at LB and all the great people on your staff.
    You do so much for us, and you have provided an opportunity for beaders from all over to meet and become friends. So, “Thank You” for everything, and I wish you and your loved ones a lovely Thanksgiving.

    Happy Thanksgiving to all!! I’m sure all of Lima Beads has gone home tonight. Mothers and families hurriedly get ready for big gatherings and celebrations together. Happy Holidays to all. Thanks for the info on the great gift with purchase items.
    How nice of you all to do that for your customers. I’ll be doing some shopping but our families have tried to keep down cost for the last few years. Everyone have a safe holiday.

    Free Beads that sounds awesome…I always love a deal. My last order was here in a timely fashion but I was a little disappointed when I only got 1/2 strand of the per. opals. Oh well, I’ve got enough to do me for now…I just love them. I also, love Lima Beads..they are great!!!

    Ok – LB – just so you know – this is where I came on the scene last year! Your give away had me hooked. Not to mention the beads. I placed my first order on Nov. 30. It arrived almost immediately. I loved what I got and ordered twice more within 2 weeks.
    As always, thanks for your wonderful products and service. And special thanks for remaining responsive to us!

    Just wanted to say “thank you” for the stunningly gorgeous sapphire blue CZ pendant that arrived in my order!!! WOW — it is even more beautiful than the picture! I may just sit and look at it for a few days, weeks, months…..until inspiration strikes! Well, hopefully not quite that long…..LOL

    BTW, Jeanne — LB didn’t hook me in until the Infamous Easter Egg Hunt of 2009…..ROTFLOL

    Me again — LOL — Another big “thank you” for my latest free beads — the three Amazonite leaf drops! They are so beautiful!!! Now I just have to decide if I’m going to use them all at once or one at a time……hmmmmmm……so many decisions! :D

    I’m jealous Lynn 8) . Mom won’t let me buy any more beads for now because I have so many! :(

    Maybe she’ll let me use some of my Christmas money to buy some beads (as a Christmas present to myself…well actually from whoever gave me the money LOL)! I really want those amazonite leaf drops!! ;)

    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    That’s a great idea, Nicole — the giveaway lasts until 12-31!!! :D 8)

    BTW, a serious beader can never have too many beads…… ;)
