Bali Bead Giveaway

We’re back. Arrived home in the early hours of Monday morning and I have to say it was the best holiday ever. It was wonderful to spend time with out adult children and their partners (without all the mothering duties, like cooking, cleaning and washing). They were great tour guides and fantastic company.


Impressions of Bali…….hot and steamy, noisy and lots of traffic, fantastic restaurants and bars, brilliant shopping and gorgeous friendly people. Would I go again?…….most definitely, I told the kippers we need to make it an annual event.

So…….I’m home and relaxed and thought I’d spread some of my endorphins around by having a giveaway. Haven’t had one for a while.

Up for grabs is a selection of beads that I bought in Bali. Now I know you are going to ask what stones they are and I’m going to tell you I haven’t a clue because the lovely sales lady had limited English and I had no Balinese language at all.

This is not the best photo and you may get a better idea of the beads here.


I know the black flower is onyx and the owl is crystal and I’m guessing the leaf and small square beads are some type of jasper. The small butterflies and large spotted bead?……have no clue but they’re gorgeous anyway. I’ve included a brass toggle and clasp and  some silver bead caps plus I’ll throw in a few extra bits and bobs from my polymer clay stash too.


So just leave a comment and facebook, tweet and blog about it if you so desire. I’ll draw a name out next Tuesday 10th April, so don’t forget to leave me a way of contacting you. International readers are welcome.
