Friday Forgot It a/k/a Wednesday What is it: Late Version

garden pod glass focal bead lori greenbergHere is the next installment of the Wednesday What is It? game.

Today’s enticement is a beautiful amethyst pod bead. A $35 value. You won’t get this exact pod bead, as it sold long ago, but I will make you one darn near close to it…probably even better because I’ve made lots of them by now and I’m becoming a pod pro.

I just love these pod beads and I’ll be showing lots of them at the upcoming Tucson show in February. Make sure to stop by and say hi and mention that you saw the pod bead in this contest for a 10% retail discount.

Ok. Shameless pitch over. (I had to fill up some room here so I can get down to posting the contest picture without messing up my formating).

A couple changes this week…a whole week was way too long for you all to be guessing. Most of the guesses came in on the first day. So…this one will end on Tuesday at midnight, Arizona USA time. Winner to be announced on Wednesday when a new contest starts. Sound good? Good. Let’s go.

Here it is. Not bead related so everyone has the same chances.

You know the drill. Leave a comment with your guess. First correct answer wins. You need to come back here to see if you won. I’m not gonna chase you to give you something free. If you win, you need to send me your address so I can mail your winnings to you. New rule: You have 30 days to claim your prize or it goes back into the prize box.

Let the guessing begin!

Free Beads Go to Good Homes. I hope.

Lorraine Chandler, come on down!  Soap bubbles it is!  Looking at all of the responses I have to say that you all are pretty observant of your surroundings.  I never realized how many things look like bubbles…opals, glitter, fake snow, etc.

Here is the original picture.


Now, I know what you might be thinking.  At least one of you.  I said specific is better and someone did guess bubble bath which this was, indeed!  So, I will also award a prize to Suz of suzanne-catching-up blog.  Dishwashing bubbles was pretty good too but that is the instance of being specific working against you.  But good try!

And for one that just made me laugh, Jean gets something too for the inside of a baby diaper.   Well, she doesn’t get something for the inside of a diaper…she gets something for that guess.

So, Lorraine, Suz and Jean, send me your address and I’ll get your winnings in the mail.

p.s.  I haven’t heard back from Linda for last week’s WWII winning guess.  Get me your address, girl!

Whew.  That was fun.  I know I’m a day late and now a dollar short because I’ve been sitting here typing this.  But, regardless that it’s Thursday and my contest is titled Wednesday…I’ll be back later tonight with another round of WWII.  Be sure to come back!  (or subscribe).   Thanks for playing.

wwii: Wednesday What is it No. 2?

Linda! You won the first Wednesday What is it? contest! Email me your address and your winning bead will be in the mail lickety split.

The answer was: An attempt at a hollow bead that burned through the mandrel. It is what happened while working with a newer, bigger, torch and not being used to it. At least it didn’t fall into my lap.

Tglass elusive lentil bead lori greenberghat was a little biased towards glass bead makers so this week I have an image that is fair game. It has nothing to do with bead making. Remember, the more specific the answer, the better your chances are to win.

Here is this week’s prize:

That’s right. I’m offering up this bead from my Elusive series, valued at $40. You might not want to tell your friends about the contest because that would lower your odds of winning. But I sure would appreciate you passing the word around.

This bead is 36 mm wide and you won’t believe how cool it is until you see it in your little hand.

So anyway, without further hesitation, here is this weeks image…what the heck is it? Winners announced next Wednesday, Jan 9th, so get your comment in before then. (I’m on Arizona time).
