The September Challenge

Welcome to the September challenge! This month the theme is WHATEVER THE WEATHER so we'd like you to create something that is inspired by a particular weather phenomenon.

There are plenty of weather phenomena to choose from, if you're stuck then click here for a list from the Met Office to get you started. Please let us know your choice when you email your entry.

This month our sponsor is Celia and she's offering one lucky winner £15 to spend in her online shop Jencel!

Simply email a photograph of your entry to Liz at ottbs@live.com along with any other info we have asked for. The challenge runs until Midnight on Wednesday the 30th of September and the winner is drawn and announced the following day. You can email your entry at any time during the month. The challenge is open to beaders worldwide.

Entries must have been started on or after September 1st 2015.
You can make any item, it does not need to be jewellery.
You can use any craft technique but it must include beads.
Your entry must be a finished piece.
If your entry isn't your own design you must credit the original designer.

There is more detailed info here but if you have any further questions about the challenge please feel free to email us at ottbs@live.com!

Good luck everyone and happy beading!
