Welcome to my newest blog challenge!
The last time I saw Sara Lukkonen of C Koop Beads, we talked about doing another blog challenge and Sara picked out these brand new enameled book components that she has recently developed.
She has sent me 12 books, and I'll be participating so I have 11 open spots to fill. Please be sure to read this entire post and all rules before commenting.
There are some rules for this challenge, as there are for every beading challenge. But Sara has requested that a few requirements be met first. Don't worry, it'll still be FUN!
1. At last three items used in your finished design must come from your local bead store. Items noted and referenced to the store. And if you don't have a bead store in your area, it's okay to shop online for your components- there are some really great online bead stores!
Post Script: The idea behind this is to support our local bead shops as so many are forced to close! Case in point, my local bead shop went out of business about 2 years ago and I was heart-broken! Kicking myself for not shopping there more often when it was available! Try to stay away from the big box stores if you can help it! And I'm always a huge supporter of shopping HANDMADE whenever you can!
2. The challenge is going to be judged by Sara's local bead store via pictures. And there will be 1 winner! The winner will receive $100 of C-Koop components of their choice!
3. You will share your "story" behind your creation. You can either blog about your story or send the text on to me, or Sara.

Here's how this will work. If you would like to participate, I will be choosing 11 random participants. Please leave 1 comment each on this post to enter. International participants are welcome to enter too! I will then send the books to each participant via first class USPS mail.
Participants will receive a random color.
I will need the 11 participants to send me their mailing address once chosen. Please check back on Friday to see if you have been chosen. I will not spend a lot of time trying to hunt you down. If you don't contact me, I will have to choose another playeer to take your place.
I will pick the players for this challenge on Friday October 25th, and the deadline for your finished pieces will be November 25th. You have 1 month to finish your project.
Sara will be sharing all photos of your finished projects on her Facebook page, and that's where the judging will take place.
Story telling is a huge part of jewelry design in a lot of ways, so this process should be fun! The challenge will be to create a piece of jewelry around your finished "book". Good Luck to all!
