I've entered a HUGE beading contest, and I want to win!
Last year was their first year, and the grand prize winner won a $1,500 gift certificate for Fire Mountain Gems, a $1,000 gift certificate from Miyuki beads and an all expense paid trip to the the huge Bead Fest event in Santa Fe.
There are 9 categories and my goal/wish is to enter something in each (you can only enter one piece in each category).
And this contest is kinda like American Idol, in that beaders around the world get to vote for the winners. After the experts at Interweave chose the twenty finalists for each category, beaders around the world will choose their top 5 in each category.
I wanna win!!!!
I'm quite sure I won't, ;) but I'd LOVE to... And my family says that a couple of the categories have my name on them! (Who can you trust if you can't trust your family???)
Here's the link for the finalists from last year: http://www.beadingdaily.com/beadstar/2008/bead-star-crystals.asp
But you have to buy the magazine to see the winners...
Suffice it to say, it's a BIG deal in the beading world.So, if you're a member of beading daily, keep an eye out for your opportunity to vote for the Bead Stars! Maybe you'll even see one of my designs...
