Silver Parrot Designs

Look home generous Silver Parrot is:


And the winner is....................Ruralrose! Congratulations and please e-mail me your address so I can get your giant box of beads in the mail to you ASAP! I'll be sending them via Fed Ex so I need an actual street address and not a P.O. Box.

Okay, so the contest ends on Friday, June 12th, and so far, I've been a little disappointed in the level of interest (no offense to those of you who HAVE been nice enough to cross-post on your blogs). I was just hoping to generate a little more action.

**EDITED TO ADD: Thank you all so much for the bloggy love. 'Fess up - it was the picture of the emeralds that did it, right? LOL! Anyway, thank you all for your comments and cross-links/blog posts/twitters! I'm excited to check out everyone's blogs and can't wait to see who wins. Stay tuned!**
So, I thought maybe what was missing was some concrete evidence of what a LARGE pile of beads this is and what a great opportunity it will be for someone.

See how that entire cardboard box is OVERFLOWING onto my bed? OVERFLOWING WITH BEADS, people! FREE BEADS!

A closer look at the FREE BEADS!

In this pic you can see lots of cube beads, large delica beads, some Czech glass black cat beads and a whole bag of black hex-cut seed beads.

Pretty cloisonne beads and large pink fiberoptic oval beads. Also, a baggie of clear/pink Czech firepolish ovals in the upper left corner.

Some green size 10 delicas and some Miyuki pink/amber triangle beads.

Getting into the blues and greens here: A strand of blue lace agate graduated rondelles and barrels, some green cube beads, green/clear Czech glass flowers and a green stone star.

Some mini bugle beads and a pink rhodonite donut peeking out in the center of the picture.

In this bag? A strand of genuine emerald oval beads.

And this is just a taste of what is in the box.

So, get out there and post on your blogs and leave a link in the comments here to your posting before midnight on Friday, June 12th, to be entered!

Good luck!

Thank you very much!!! I hope this is linked properly. Peace


    I hope you have a great time with the beads!


  2. Thanks so much Kris, you are so sweet!!! I really can't believe my luck, the woman giving the beads is a real artist with beads. A really generous thing for her to do. Also so glad to hear you are finding a way to connect with nature. This connection has its own calming health benefits as you see. Oh yes happiness is mine today. Peace
