I wrote about Kashmiri beads in last week’s post and the lucky winner is Debbie Thomas!! For this third and final giveaway post, I have four Maruti beads donated by the eponymous Maruti Beads , plus some Kashmiri beads I didn’t include in last week’s giveaway because they look so beautiful with the Maruti beads.
Maruti beads combine some of the characteristics of Kashmiri beads (polymer clay base) with design elements found in Maruti Bead’s copper and silver plated beads. The addition of the fancy end caps gives these beads an a distinctive look. Like the other offerings from Maruti beads, they are all hand made.
I mentioned that I didn’t give away all the Kashmiri beads last week. I am including them in this week’s giveaway because I absolutely love the way they look with the Maruti beads.
Don’t they look awesome together? Of course you don’t have to use them together but I am already designing jewelry in my head.
I have four each of the Maruti beads and round Kashmiri beads, and eight of the tube Kashmiri beads for one lucky person who wins this weeks’ giveaway.
Maruti Beads makes Lac Beads, Shamballa Bracelets and other goodies. You can reach them on any of the following social media links or at their website.
I must confess that silver and blue is my favorite combo to work with. I love that the two colors are so calming and cooling together.
Thank you for this giveaway offer! fingers crossed!
I love soft combinations of purples and mauves, But I also find myself working with shades of blue — turquoise, teal, ocean colours — more often than not. Thanks again for the chance to win!
I don’t know if I could narrow my likes down to two colors….but I gotta say, this combo of blue and silver is stunning!
I wear a lot of greens and love green black and silver as a combination , but when I am jeans and t shirting it … then blues turquoise and silver always looks great . The beads are gorgeous , and I agree the Kashmiri and maruti look good together . Trying not to think what I would make too much , but it would be fantastic to win …
