We love photography at beadshop.com, so it makes sense that we fell hard for Instagram. This little app makes it so easy to take a simple photograph and turn it into something special. When we first joined, it was so much fun to look through all of the creative beading ideas out there that we decided it was time to see everything that you have been creating. That is where our first Instagram contest came from, and we have been absolutely blown out of the water by everything you have submitted! With over 200 entries, it was very difficult to narrow down our favorites. That being said, we have managed to choose 3 winners that have inspired everyone in the office.
@cterril designed this gorgeous set inspired by our Mosaic Wrap Bracelets. The way the design was converted to earrings is completely new to us and we think it is such a great evolution of the project.
@_anna_bee_ created this beautiful Herringbone Wrap Bracelet. It had never occurred to us to use two colors of Chinese Knotting Cord simultaneously, and the result is this beautiful twill-like wrap.
There were many other photos that wowed us, and below is a sampling of a few of them. If you would like to see all of the entries in the contest you can view them on Statigram.
