Default A New BOC Challenge -- 30 Beads in April

I'd like to offer a new BOC challenge for April, after Debbie's awesome challenge in March.

April has 30 days. For everyone who makes 30 BHKBs (big honking kid beads) in April and posts a photo of them here, I will send you a 2 oz. jar of one of my frit blends (or two 1 oz. jars).

The beads should be 1.5 inches long or wide, in any design of your choice, and you must post a picture by May 1 and mail them no later than the first week of May.

Looking forward to seeing your beads!

How great of you Elizabeth! I'll be making some for sure, and will post a picture if I get to 30 (and I should!).

My pleasure Robert. And you can do it Debbie.

I hope we get some good participation. Please post some photos as you go.

I'm challenging myself too. I made 3 hearts today.

No problem either way, but I'm reading this that we should actually melt the glass for these in April, correct?

Yes, 30 beads in April is the goal.

But if you have beads already made that didn't count toward Debbie's challenge, that would be fine too.

The idea is to get additional beads donated for the BOC kiddos.

I got a little torching in today, just enough to get a few beads made for BOC and one test bead for me. I'll be back out there ASAP!

Let's make this a little easier. I won't hold you to all big beads, just 30 beads of any size for BOC. If you can make them big, all the better, but don't let size matter (too much).

Here are my 30 beads. I have smaller ones in my BOC bowl. They will go out soon! A lot of these beads are closer to 2 inches than 1.5.

Who else wants to play?

You are so generous and for a good cause. I will try, but any I do will go to BOC anyway.

Okay, I've been torching away and have 31 bunny rabbits all ready to go. I'll mail them tomorrow and keep making more to see how many I can get done in April.

Here's the warren:
