Wishing Well Mystery Challenge

Throughout the genre of fairytales, the archetypal well appears frequently.  Often times it represents a portal to adventure, a doorway to another world.  It also enters into these fantastical stories as a place of purification and a catalyst of wish-granting.  These stone structures, with their circular holes that tunnel into the shadowy, unseen underworld, are plentiful and pop up in tales from around the globe.  Thus, the Wishing Well Mystery Challenge was born!  This kit is loosely inspired by this mysterious symbol.  The kit combines a mix of silvery grays, riverstone browns, cool blues, and earthy violets.  
So... here's the deal:  Participants of the challenge will purchase a kit.  No one knows what's in it except for us.  We'll send them out and folks will get a SURPRISE when they open the box!  Don't worry, it'll be a good one!  Mystery 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, April 6th, 2017 we'll share all the creations in our Facebook group.  This will be the first Design Challenge of the new year!  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!)

I also wanted to mention that all the Design Kits will be shipped with Priority mail.  This 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! I will do my best to get your kit out as early as possible, but unfortunately I can't be held responsible if it arrives late due to the postal service.

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