Day Seven -- BAO Welcomes Spring Giveaway

Day Seven is the last day of the BAO Welcomes Spring Giveaways, and it may be the best day yet!

We hope you've enjoyed browsing our members' shops, visiting the Bead Art Gifts blog; and we hope you were able to take advantage of some of the fabulous sales in the shops! There's just one day left in our BAO Welcomes Spring Sale, so there's still time for you to find something fabulous and get a great deal at the same time.

For the last day of the giveaways, we'd like you to choose one favorite piece from each of FIVE members' shops. Whether you're looking for beads, bead art pieces for your home, or jewelry, you're sure to find something you love. We're even giving you a couple of extra days so you'll have more time to browse.

After you've chosen your favorites, leave a comment on this blog post between now and midnight Eastern Daylight Time on Wednesday, April 22, including:

1. which FIVE pieces are your favorites (you can just paste the links here) and

2. a way for us to contact you (your Etsy shop name or your email address) if you win.

On Thursday, April 23, we will use a random number generator to select the winner of ALL FOUR of these beautiful pieces:
...A spring-themed bangle bracelet by Anne (arosebyname)
...A colorful beaded bracelet by Sarah (thebeadedlily)
...A beadwoven star keyring by Smadar (SmadarsTreasure)
...And a colorful peyote triangle necklace by MaryLou (time2cre8)

wow. Five. So hard to narrow down the choices.

1. I love the the dramatic and deep Portia's Necklace by CieloDesign

2. Dumauvobleu uses a most fabulous combination of colors, textures, shapes and patterns in this polymer clay pendant

3. These uber-chic earrings Orbis Earrings - Battery Park by Enso are sophisticated, modern and very wearable

4. The Red Earth Raku necklace by MAKUstudio is so primal and gorgeous. I LOVE this piece!

5. I am in complete awe of the Bellydance bra & belt bead embroidered ensemble by thejadedog
I would have to buy an artist's mannequin just to display that piece in my home.

I could choose dozens more, but those pieces definitely caught my eye.
