This time I actually managed to take a couple photos! Oh, the beauty of free time.
Firstly, here's a picture of my Phoenix Jacket. It won second place in the Wirework category of the Bead Dreams competition. I cannot wait to use my gift certificate at Beaducation.
My favorite piece in Bead Dreams was probably these little glass robots. They deservedly won first place in their category.
Then, I saw a beaded kimono. It was made on a loom, and puts everything I've done to shame. Now I want to make something even bigger... because my competitiveness comes out in ways like that.
Since I sold more kits than expected, I bought a little treat for myself. For years, my table has been next to Amy Waldman-Smith, and this year I found a bird I had to have.
I'm going to put it on a ring. And possibly make it a chainmail outfit. I haven't decided.
