Yearning Mystery Challenge

The first time that I saw Christi Friesen's work, I looked through a window into a room off an atrium in a mansion in Tucson, Arizona.  The exuberance and curiosity in her work was evident.  Looking at her work, I could see someone who explored themes in nature and did so with whimsy.  We recently had an opening of Christi's work and I picked, "Yearning" to focus on.  This piece belongs to the "Germination Series" and all the pieces feature a bursting forth of energy and contain a sense of growth.  Thus, the Yearning Mystery Challenge was born!  (You can take a look at the piece and even buy it if you're so inclined by CLICKING HERE.) This kit is loosely inspired by the art piece by the same name.  The kit combines a mix of bleached pine wood beige, brilliant gold, poppy reds, dusty pinks, and springy greens.  

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, October 26th, 2017 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!)

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.

And if you need more Luxury Bead Blend, we decided to offer additional mixes to those who were interested.  You can do so by CLICKING HERE.
