Chrys is an avid participant of our contests and was actually our monthly winner twice in 2012. His creations inspired us all year long and clearly, they inspired you too! We’re thrilled to give this award to him and know he’ll represent the role well (and keep his well-earned bragging rights within reason *wink*)
Congrats also to all our finalists. Your work was fantastic and we’re so glad we weren’t the ones who had to decide a winner! We can’t wait to keep seeing your amazing work this year. Keep challenging yourselves and showing off your talents!
As Mailler of the Year, Chrys earns our grand prize of a $100 B3 gift certificate and of course, bragging rights for the year. To earn a spot as a finalist for 2013 Mailler of the Year, submit a piece to one of our Featured Weave contests. We post details on our blog at the beginning of each month, so stay tuned!
Thanks to all our February contest participants. We are currently accepting submissions for March’s contest. Create something using our size O18 rings – any metal – for your chance to win!
Submissions for February’s Featured Product of the Month Contest are closed, and the B3 team has cast their ballots to determine the finalists…..which means it’s time for YOU to cast your vote to determine the winner. Folks this month were challenged to create a piece that featured anodized aluminum scales. The submissions really demonstrate the impact adding scales to your projects can have! Voting will close February 29th. Voting is only allowed once per computer so choose wisely!
To share the survey, we recommend you copy the link to this blog post and use that in any emails, blog posts, or social media posts you’d like to make about it (we’ve noticed some weirdness in the past with sharing the link directly – it sometimes like to bump people out of voting that haven’t already.)
March’s featured product will be our size O18 jump rings – any metal. For March, we are upping the creative ante and challenging you to create a project using one of our more obscure sizes. We do not currently have a weave samples post for this size so you’re working without a net! (We know you can handle it though *wink*.)
But wait, there’s more! We will add a special place on each submission form for you to opt in to add your weave suggestion to our first ever fan-sourced weave samples post. We figure we have some of the most creative customers around, so why not make a place to permanently share your suggestions as a resource to everyone!
This month’s “Maillers’ Choice” kits are now available on our sale page. We will offer these kits today only from noon to midnight CT – get yours before they’re gone! This month’s kit is a one-time-only kit for our Shaggy Scales Earrings project. This is a great kit for beginners and a fun way to whip up a project in no time – not to mention the tutorial is available for FREE on our website!
We had such an overwhelming response to the voting this month that we added a special “Buy 3 get 1 FREE” 4 pack in addition to the regular single pair pack. Make the other pairs for your friends or better yet, get them addicted to your favorite hobby too by giving them the kit to try out on their own!
B3′s Maillers’ Choice Kit continues to be a hit! We’ve invited you to customize three of our favorite bracelet kits and this month, we’re excited to have you customize a kit for our Shaggy Scales earring project!
For February, you’ll be customizing a one-time-only kit for our Shaggy Scales earring project. This kit is being created just for “Maillers’ Choice” and is not regularly available on our website. This beginning level project is fun and easy and is a great introduction to working with our impeccable anodized aluminum scales.
Voting for the Maillers’ Choice kit starts today and closes on the 10th. Your top-voted combination will be made into kits and released on our website on the 15th.
