Hollowlogy Big Bead Giveaway



Who is ready for another bead giveaway!?

I recently discovered a bead artist from across the seas in Israel. She creates the most amazing and colorful hollow polymer clay beads on the planet and was kind enough to agree when I approached her about donating beads for a blog giveaway!

Her shop is called Hollowlogy. And you'll be surprised at how fast you'll fall
in love with every listing. The cool thing is, Orly is always coming up with new
and creative designs, so her shop is always changing and is always fresh!




Orly has sent a set of 6 coordinating beads in this beautiful plum, burgundy, orange and Gold  color palette.  The winner of this giveaway will win all 6 beads shown here! (and a nice big needle for stringing help) Since the beads are hollow, they can be tricky to string on beading wire, and the needle she includes is extremely helpful!


I love the patchwork and flower patterns on this set and can't wait to order a set of my own!

To enter this giveaway, please leave a comment on this post and tell me which set in Orly's shop that you like best, and why!  I will pick 1 random winner for this bead set, tomorrow morning at 8am!

Good luck to everyone!

And thank you Orly for your generous donation!

  1. I love the ethnic beads with the circles and polka dots. I also love that Orly makes a tutorial available so we can try some of her techniques though I don't think mine could ever be as beautiful as her creations.

    They remind me of a vintage patchwork quilt.

  5. I'm always glad to find a new bead maker. I love these colorful beads! My favorite is the first set. When I have big holed beads or beads that have awkward holes like filigree beads I whisper 'Use the Force Luke' and it usually works for me..... but really using a needle would probably be more effective.
    Thanks for the chance to win!!!

    I love the big round hammered style as they would go with the metals I work with. All the beads are really cool. Thank you for promoting her and having this give away.

    I just posted on Orly's Facebook page a couple of weeks ago, saying how much I loved all her beads. Now here you are giving away some of her beauties. My favorite would have to be the orange and green set. Orange was my Dads favorite color and green is my Moms, so I love both those colors in any and all shades.Thank you both for the chance to win!

  10. Oh, I remember these unforgettable beads from your earlier post! Would love to combine these with some of Cindy Wimmer's wire wrapped links. My favorite set from Orly's shop has the earthen tones of orange, brown, mossy green with a touch of magenta. Her color palettes are so unique and intriguing. Thanks for the giveaway op!

    I love, love. love the patchwork ones. I love her colors, and design. I have had my eye on them for a bit now, but they just seem so big.I would have to get creative on using them...but I am sure they would make a pretty awesome bracelet when all was said and done.

I'm sorry to have to turn on the word verification here, but I got fed up with spammers comments!
