Glamorinky Friday #11

For this week's Glamorinky fun your game has two parts.
Please put both answers in the same comment:
1. Post what the red beads in the photo above are called
2. Post an interesting fact about the beads

Players have from the moment the contest is posted on Friday October 27, 2006 until Sunday October 29, 2006 at midnight Eastern Standard Time to place their answers in the comments section of this post. On Monday October 30, 2006 I'll draw or randomize a name from all of the correct entries and announce it in that day's post. The person selected should contact me through the email link on this blog to give me their address,
and I will send them something made with one or more of these beads.


1. No purchase necessary. A purchase of any kind will not increase your chances of winning.
2. You must be 18 or older to participate in Glamorinky Friday. This contest is open to residents of the USA and Canada. Prize values vary. One guess per person/household per week. This contest is open to individuals only. NO ENTERING SERVICES PERMITTED.
3. Please do not post the answers anywhere but on the Glamorosi blog.
4. Please DO NOT say, "I think it's this OR this", because that is two guesses.
5. NO DELETING. If you have a glitch and accidentally double or triple post, please don't delete it, leave it there so everyone can see what happened and no-one will think you changed your answer.
6. If you are commenting as "Anonymous", be sure and leave your name with your guess so I can include you in the drawing if you guess correctly.
7. Glamorosi the company and/or Glamorosi the person are NOT responsible for and will not be held accountable for computer glitches or lost or misdirected posts/entries. Please enter early and make sure you get in.
8. One winner per week will be selected from the pool of correct entries. For weeks with less than 50 participants, I will use the ultra-official paper-ball-in-a-hat selection method. For weeks with more than 50 I will use a randomizer. Winner will be awarded prize offered - no cash or prize substitutions. I DO NOT notify Glamorinky winners - you MUST come back to this blog to see if you won. THERE IS NO LIMIT TO THE AMOUNT OF TIMES YOU CAN WIN.
9. PRIVACY POLICY: for now I am not collecting anyone's info unless they win. I will only use your address to ship your prize, and then I can delete it or add it to my database - your choice. I do not share, trade, or sell my mailing list.
10. I reserve the right to add to, alter, or change the rules of this contest. I reserve the right to award a prize of equal value if the advertised prize becomes unavailable.
11. Please send correspondence regarding this contest and all other Glamorosi business through the email link on this blog.

Now here's your clue:
These beads aren’t really made of what their name is.

Have fun! See you Monday!
