Coral Coast Challenge

Your toes sink into the sugar fine sand and cool water swirls around your ankles with a pomp of salty froth. As the water retreats, gifts are ceremoniously deposited at your feet. You bend down to examine your sea-given offerings. Half buried in the wet sand, a cream-colored pockmarked branch extends, reaching up to you. You pick it up. The once jagged roughness has been tumbled smooth. It evokes an underwater kingdom of darting fish and iridescent caverns littered with otherworldly life. Next to it is a shell covered in raised ridges with alternating bands of purplish brown and ruddy pink. You pick this up also. Flipping the shell over, you inspect the pearly recess, a buttery cream fanning out from a kitten tongue pink heart. Holding both your treasures in your palm, you look out onto the horizon. It is a coruscating seascape of pinks, and oranges, and tinges of scarlet, as the golden disc dips below the far off line that separates sea and sky. This is peace. This is possibility. This was the inspiration of our latest design kit challenge. The kit combines a mix of peachy coral and pinkish red, with pops of pearly cream and accents of purplish browns.

So... here's the deal: Participants of the challenge will purchase a kit. The kit is made up of a strand of prehnite, vintage plastic, ceramic, vintage glass, aventurine, vintage seed beads, waxed linen, coconut, and a luxury bead blend! The kit will also include a mystery component! No one knows what it is until it arrives at your door. Challengers will have a few weeks to make something with the kit. They can use as much or as little of the kit as they like and supplement the kit with beads from their own stash if they so desire.

And then... on Thursday, August 30th, 2018 we'll share all the creations in our Facebook group. CLICK HERE to visit our Facebook group just for our design challenges.

Now, here's the fine print: There are only 20 Design Kits available! Once we receive your order, we will process your kit and send it out within ten business days. Usually it's faster than that, but we like to make sure that there is plenty of time to make the kits perfect. HURRY! Supplies are limited and are on a FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE basis! (Sorry, no exceptions!)

Shipping of the Design Kits can take anywhere from one business day to ten. For international orders, it may take longer! If you know it takes a long time to reach your destination (from Southwestern Pennsylvania) please place your orders early! We will do our best to get your kit out as early as possible, but unfortunately we can't be held responsible if it arrives late due to the postal service. NOTE: Chosing Priority Shipping at checkout will provide for a tracking number, insurance, and faster shipping than First Class Service.

All sales of the Design Kits are final and there are no returns or exchanges.
