British Bead Awards First Place!!


Oh my goodness! I was completely wrong in my post yesterday - I thought I hadn't placed in the competition because some other entrants were notified over the weekend, and I hadn't had any word. To my surprise, I just received an email from Bead Magazine. "Cabinet of Curiosities" has taken First Place in the metal clay category!

On top of that, "Eye See You" - my eye pendant - has taken Second Place in the Beyond Glass handmade beads and components:


Pardon the shameless display, but I'm so surprised! I'm off to do my happy dance. Please see my previous post for more information on these pieces.

As the SO would say, Hip-hip Hooray!

I just KNEW that was a mistake! You art is so rare, so lovely, they would be fools not to recognize your genius! I am so very excited for you, but it is not unexpected nor undeserved. Revel in your glory, Miss Melissa! Enjoy the day! Erin

Congratulations!! You must tell us when Bead Magazine is available.
I especially like the key...reminds me of several I picked at the HP bead show.
