New Leather Message Bracelets

We have been super busy creating leather cuff bracelets with stamped metal messages.  Dry Gulch rivets the metal to the leather and adds two snap clasps, making the bracelets adjustable.  We are happy to create a custom bracelet for you. Call, email or FB message us for your own customized bracelet.

Catherine and Deborah will be at Posh Alley in Bentonville, AR on December 13, 2014.  Come by and watch as your custom stamped bracelet is created while you wait.

November Color Design Challenge

Dry Gulch November Color Design Challenge

Use our colors to inspire your creativity! Post your project using the color palette above. Your design will be eligible to win a $25 gift certificate to Dry Gulch Beads.

Anything can be created for this challenge, including; finished jewelry pieces, headbands, wearable pendants/pins, handmade cards, lampwork beads, seed-bead art, sewing design, metal-smithing/art, paper crafting, clothing/fiber art, leather work, painting, even your favorite culinary delights (like cupcakes), etc. Your project must be created newly and specifically for our current monthly challenge. The sky is the limit! Show us how creative you are with our color palette.

For this challenge, Dry Gulch is offering a $25 gift certificate prize to the winner. The judges will be looking for adherence to the color palette, creativity of the project’s design and effort. You may purchase and use Dry Gulch components in your project, but that is not a requirement to win.

Your judges will be the 3 generations of women who create at Dry Gulch Beads and Jewelry. The judges may create and post their own visions of the monthly color palette also, but for inspiration and presentation only. We’ll publish each created work on Facebook and here on this challenge page.

Add your photo in the comments on our Color Design Challenge Facebook Event or email us your photo to custserv@drygulch.com. When uploading, you may add a description of your work. If also Facebooking and/or blogging your Dry Gulch Color Design project, please add a link to the Challenge on your page. Entries for the Dry Gulch Color Design Challenge may be turned in from now until midnight CST, Sunday, November 30, 2014.
