TOHO Challenge 2024

Rules for mini kit Designers

  • We encourage you to use at least some of each color of TOHO seed bead and Starman
    Czech/Prestige Crystal in the kit to create one eye-catching piece to display, it can be wearable
    or structural in any medium of your choice but must Feature the TOHO seed beads.

 

  • You can use in any size or shape the TOHO beads in the exact stock numbers on the 2024 list of
    colors, names may differ depending on retailer, there is one sample of each color in the kit, you
    can add more in any size or shape that you choose in those colors to create your vision. 

 

  • You are allowed to use in any size or shape of Starman Czech Beads and Prestige Crystal Beads that we have on the 2024 color list, there is one sample of each of the Starman Czech beads or Prestige beads in the kit, the beads come in many finishes in those colors that you can use in your choice of finish (Regular, Matte, AB, Shimmer) in any of the colors on the list. Find more beads in the palette colors at your favorite local bead shop or online retailer.
  • No other seed beads or Czech beads may be used if they are not on the list!

 

  • You can add one Focal item of your choice and use it once, such as 1 Cabochon

 

  • You can use any clasp, findings, backing, threads, fibers and structural supports, to create your design—if seen, make sure they stay within the challenge color palette and are used sparingly, so that the TOHO seed beads are the star of the show!
