Comments are closed!! We will post a winner shortly!

We are excited! It’s time for the first EVER Baubles & Beads Design Team Reveal. We are so pleased that our talented team has worked so hard to create some fantastic pieces. We have received a few sneak peek photos from our participants and want to share a teaser with you.


They look so cool even in their masked state, right?? We think so, too. The reveal is Wednesday, September 18th and you can find each post on the designer’s blogs listed below. Click on over and check out what they made AND you’ll find a special discount coupon code for our online store as well.

We had so many comments from readers about how much they loved the kit that we sent out to our Design Team, that we thought we would celebrate by having a little giveaway as well.
