I’m in the winners circle for Bead Soup!

I’m very excited to share the news…

Yes my bold and one of a kind ring was found amongst the winners and runners up as part of the Bead Soup Blog Party contest.  I hope if you haven’t seen all the winners yet you will take a moment with that last link, there is some serious eye candy.  Now those familiar with the BSBP know it was never intended as a competition, this was just a little icing on the cake introduced this time around.  That clever Lori Anderson keeps finding ways to make this swap bigger and better.  I’m thrilled and humbled to have been chosen by Fusion Beads as “Judge’s Choice” especially when you hear that there are nine hundred pins of gorgeous work from the group.

To celebrate I will be SHOPPING!  I’m the happy recipient of a $50 gift certificate to Fusion Beads!  Wouldn’t you know they even have a sale on at the moment, lucky timing.  Of course I will have to look over the whole site to decide what my treat will be.  I’ll be sure to share once it’s in my hot little hands.

Since I’m still talking about the BSBP seems a fine time to show the earrings I never remembered to photograph to go with one of the main pieces I created.

Just the other day I came across these green amethyst in my bead cabinet and it dawned on me that they were the perfect green for Cindy’s beads.  A few sterling accents and some (I think) indicolite Swarovski crystals and I’ve got some very sparkly and dramatic earrings.

The best part of all is I still have some more gorgeous beads to play with from my partner Cindy Ritchie.  Big thanks go to Cindy, Lori and Fusion Beads for making what was already a ton of fun even better.
