WINNING TIPS FROM BEADAHOLIQUE

• As Swarovski mentioned, a great picture and great lighting are important. Try taking your photo in several different areas, including by a window or outside, to find the best picture.

• Don’t be afraid to go for bold color combinations.  Go beyond the classics to make your design stand out. Consider newer colors, especially those from the latest releases: Spring/Summer 2020 Collection, Fall/Winter 2020-2021 Collection, and Spring/Summer 2021 Collection

• Find unexpected shapes to work with and surprise the judges!

 • Incorporate various beads and fancy stones to take your design to the next level.

• Now is your chance to challenge yourself with new techniques and designs.  Step outside your comfort zone.

• While you must come up with your own creative design, you can find inspiration in our many free beading projects featuring Swarovski crystals and our instructional videos
