Beadwork Beaded Bead Contest Update....

Well, I have had a great six months....??....playing with, constructing, and admiring the Beaded Beads Beadwork Magazine has offered us in pattern, as a part of their celebrations for their 15th Anniversary. It seemed like a match made in heaven! A cool design contest, using my favourite loves, beaded beads! that all the rules have been posted, it has become apparent that the contest is only open to US readers. It did not say that in the rules, but the time limitations imposed would exclude other than US peeps. :-(

But....I had great fun doing these, and will definitely use some of them again in other projects. The beads I've already created I had a design for, and will likely put that together after I get back from my trip to Washington DC this next week.

In the meantime, there's no point in waiting if I'm not going to are my beaded beads!

The little beaded stars are a component of the first bead, and I plan to use them in my design as well. 

Good luck to all the contest participants!! 


  1. I love all of your beads. The pops pf pink are great! I cannot wait to see what you end up doing with them. I am so sorry that you cannot enter the contest. I didn't realize the winning project had to arrive in 7 days. That's enough to scare anyone, even those of us in the US. :( Have a great trip and I'll be waiting to see your design.

  2. Lori ,I'm sorry that you couldn't enter to the contest.
    I don't get this "US only" thing.
    When I wanted to buy a jewelry holder on Ebay ,I sent my request and they emailed me back "US only".I had to make the very same jewelry holder for myself :))

    I like all those beaded beads you made


I love your comments! Thanks for visiting.
