The Bracelet Giveaway just got MUCH more interesting...

You might have noticed that, when I asked what color palette everyone preferred for a custom bracelet, there was a wide divergence of choice. Which is great - I love diversity!

But when I tallied up the votes, there was no clear winner...

So I got in touch with our friends at She-Beads, and we came up with an even BETTER idea...

Leave me a comment here, tell me what 2, 3 or 4 colors you would use to make your dream bracelet. Next Thursday morning, I'll draw a winner, and that winner will have that bracelet MADE FOR THEM by She-Beads...

That's a pretty spiffy offer, I'd say!

If you're struggling for color names, check out this site, which has color names that you've never even heard of, or look at my earlier post here, which might help you be more precise.

I'm really looking forward to your responses, because I'm going to look to them for ideas about color schemes for upcoming blog posts, too.  Of course, when the winning bracelet is done, I'll be doing a post specifically about it!

My favorite color scheme?  They've already got bracelets just for me:


bracelets - She-Beads

What's your preference? Lots of brights? More classic navy and grey?  I can't wait to hear what you have to say!


love,
Janice

    1. Looking through what I have maybe switch out the white for cream/off-white or a light grey/silver...definitely black and cobalt though. These are my mainstays!

  14. A deep plummy purple, forest green, China blue and ash gray for Fall and Winter if they are creating custom beads? Or, "Emmy" is already perfect for my Spring, Summer wardrobe. I've had Emmy in my shopping bag .... BTW, I also noticed they do charity beads. I'm definitely going to buy the FARE bracelet to support food allergy awareness. I will think of my son every time I wear it. Food allergies have shaped his life and made him stronger. Thanks to She Beads for supporting so many worthy causes.
