Merry Christmas Everyone!

Seasons Greetings!

2010 has been great in many ways - busy, challenging and full of delightful moments thanks to all the lovely, clever and inspiring bead and jewellery artists I have had the privilege to deal with throughout the year :-)

Our beading challenges have been really successful and it has been such an honour to have all you talented people involved.  The feedback has been fantastic, so I've decided to continue in 2011 with beading challenges in April and October.  That should give everyone plenty of time to design and create!

The subdued economy has resulted in lower sales these last 2 years, but we're still ticking over and gradually adding new lines.  After 4 1/2 years of trading, Beads Galore is well established and I look forward to continuing to serve new and existing customers in the best way possible, whilst increasing and diversifying our product range.

I wish you and your loved ones a very special Christmas, as well as happiness and prosperity in 2011.

Jo :-)

Win in December Promotion ...


We've all had a busy year ... I know myself that when someone asks me to complete an online survey or review I think twice about it if time is short, unless there's some sort of reward !

We currently have 44 product reviews on our website, which are particularly valuable for other customers. What we would like you to do is choose a product you have used and write a short review about it, which should take you a couple of minutes. You can review up to five items - ones without a review already would be the most helpful :)

So, what's in it for you? You could win yourself a divine collection of Swarovski pearls and crystals, plus a useful assortment of findings, to use in your Christmas creations - valued at over $50! Each review you post will give you one entry in a draw, with the winner being announced on 16th December.

All you need to do is:
1. Post your review(s) on our website
2. Email your name and email address to OR post them below , including the number of reviews you have posted.

We will draw the winner on Thursday 16th December to allow enough time for the prize to reach the winner before Christmas :)
