October Monthly Challenge Sponsors

Need two great reasons to participate in this month’s challenge? These two prizes should get your creative gears turning. We’ll pick two winners this month from all the qualifying entries. Winners are chosen randomly from all the entries. Everyone has a chance to win – as long as you enter!


Andrew Thornton of Allegory Gallery creates handmade jewelry, jewelry components and unique art at his studio in Ligonier, Pennsylvania.


“We are a creative space that’s one part bead store, one part jewelry boutique, one part fine art gallery, and one part gift shop. The aim of Allegory Gallery is to promote artisan craftspeople, inspire the community to explore their creativity, and act as a focal point for classes and artistic education in the area.”


Andrew is donating an assortment pictured above valued over $50: Superduos, Lisa Peters Russ Ceramic, Czech Glass, Golden Jade Chips, Manol Buri Seeds, Tibetan Beads, African Trade Beads, Hand-finished Silk strand, Waxed Linen, and Sari Silk. We are thrilled to have Allegory Gallery partnering with us again this month. We love supporting local bead shop owners who celebrate art beads!
