Ta Da!


Are you thinking, what I am looking at this piece again for.
I blogged this way way back over the Summer, because
this is the piece that I submitted to Bead Star.


Well, Guess What?!
I placed 3rd in the Plastics category!!

This piece ended up being picked! The one and only piece I sent in!
How cool is that?
So, pick up a copy of the Bead Star magazine, on stands this month,
to see this necklace featured, along with many other cool
winners!

The polymer clay beads in this necklace
are Christine Damm's Apocalypse beads. You can buy your
own set now, she's got them in her ETSY shop!
I also used a pewter bird round from my friends at
Green Girl Studios, and you can purchase their beads
at their website, Green Girl Studios.

  4. WOO HOOO CONGRATS!!! I told you before, this is one of my favorite pieces of yours ever. The way the seed strands and the brass ring interlock reminds me of those rubber bracelets I worn a 100 of when I was in middle school!!

  11. Super excited for you Lorelei! I loved this piece from the moment you shared it. And I could pick it out in a "line-up" as yours immediately. (But I am a bit surprised it wasn't first. I'm just saying.) The Bead Star mag is a great one this year! So many beady friends in there that I just want to jump up and down for everyone! Thanks for sharing! Enjoy the day!
