Use the Muse Contest

I’m so exited!!! Use the Muse is having another contest and this time it includes international beaders!!!! yeah!!! So all you beaders, from wherever you are, go and check it out!!!

Artbeads is one of the sponsors of the Use the Muse II beading design contest.

Each entrant will receive the same assortment of components including beads, crystals, pearls, silk and seed beads plus a mystery muse component that must be kept a secret until the “BIG REVEAL.”

The contest was created by Scarlett Lanson, a regular columnist in Beadwork, who has won some prestigious contests herself. She placed first in the 2009 KGI Wordwide Design Contest and fourth place in the 2007 Swarovski “Create Your Style” competition. Scarlett’s goal was to create a competition for all types of beaders; stringers, bead weavers, and embroiderers, that had a shortened timeline and a big payoff. The prizes offered are really cool. In order to enter you must buy the kit. The kits are $30 plus $5 for shipping in the US and $10 for international entrants. I’ve already ordered mine and I hope it gets here quickly as I’m so exited and can’t wait to start on my entry!!! :-)

The kit’s availability is limited and will likely be gone before the deadline of 27th June. The quicker you sign up, the more chances you will have of receiving a kit and the more time you will have to work on your entry before the 18th July deadline.
