January Newsletter

Happy New Year from Enchanted Beads!

I hope you had a good Holiday Season and 2010 found you happy and in good health.

I had a busy month, December was great, business standpoint. It was a good year as well. Many of you shopped with me, thank you for making 2009 the best sales year for Enchanted Beads.

I spent some time designing and beading as well and I came up with a few new pieces.

This is "Winter Olympics" Brooch. It is participating in the Beadweavers Emporium Challenge at 1000Markets. It is our first challenge of 2010 and we really have some beautiful entries. If you would like to vote for your favorite the poll is only one click away:

BEM Challenge - Winter Splendor

From the BEM Blog:

Winter Splendor is our first challenge of 2010 and we really have some beautiful entries. When Roxan chose this challenge theme this is what she had to say.

"How about WINTER SPLENDOR? While I don’t like the cold, I love the sight of snow and the beauty of its array of color in a blanket of white. To see the many different hues of color that happens as the sun reflects off a new fallen snow has always inspired me and I hope it inspires you to make something wonderful."

Please take a look through these beautiful entries and place a vote for your favorite between January 9th and 15th.


The Beadweaving Emporium would like to thank the following participants. We know it's a busy time of year, and yet you still found the time to give us another gorgeous piece of your work.
