Earth Day Inspiration

Posted by Steve on April 21 at 07:16 pm

UPDATE: Winners Announced!

The contest has officially ended, and we had nearly 100 designs submitted… what an awesome batch of Earthy Inspiration! :) The two winners have been selected, and we’ll be sending out their prizes shortly. Without further ado:

Winner #1: People’s Choice

The winner of the People’s Choice category is River Force by kye! This design had the most favorites, and we can see why… what a beautiful combination of colors and materials–and of course, skill :) Congratulations!

Winner #2: Lima’s Choice

The winner that was voted on by the Lima Beads staff is… bead-roll, please… Ancient Earth by E Strother! We were particularly enthralled with the mix of materials that are completely unrelated… yet completely go together :) We also loved the balance, even though it isn’t perfectly symmetrical in every way. Congrats!

Thanks to Everyone!

I can say with complete honesty that I wish we could just pick everyone as a winner… we love all the designs, and owe you a HUGE Thank You for uploading your creative creations. Thanks again, and keep an eye out for more fun in the future :)

Earthy Inspiration Design Contest

If you have some Earthy and organic ideas of your own, we’d love to see them! You might even win a Lima Beads gift certificate & a hand-picked bag of samples from our shop. Here’s how it works:

1. Make a necklace, bracelet, or pair of earrings (or any jewelry piece you’d wear) that’s inspired somehow by the Earth we live on. There are no specific components to use–everything is fair game.

2. Post your design (or multiple designs) to our Design Gallery, and select the “Earthy Inspiration 2016″ promo when you save/edit your design. Make sure you post your design by 11:59pm on Wednesday, May 18th, when the contest ends.

3. Vote for your favorite(s) while browsing the Design Gallery… more on this below :)

The Prizes…

There will be 2 winners selected on Thursday, May 19th. The first will be the “people’s choice” winner, which will be the design receiving the most favorites now through May 18th. The second winner will be “Lima’s favorite”, which will be voted on by all the amazing staff at Lima Beads. Each winners will receive both a $50 Gift Certificate and a hand-picked bag of sample strands & supplies from our shop. We don’t know what will be in the hand-picked bag yet… but there will probably about $25-50 worth of supplies inside. We’ll surprise you :)

Happy Earth Day!

We all feel blessed to live on an amazing Earth. And we hope to see some amazing jewelry from you all soon! If you have any questions, feel free to post it in the comments below.
