Here are my entries for the Bead Star contest. I'm pleased with most of the pictures. ;) We'll see how it goes.
Sadly, I entered 3 of my pictures before realizing that there was a request for ALL of the necklace to show. Ooops. So, three of my pieces (and the three I think most likely to have done well) will probably not qualify. Oh. Well.
I should have read all the instructions before taking the pictures. Duh.
My family and I had fun coming up with fancy/silly/absurd names for all the pieces, and I hope you have fun reading them.
Entered into the Plastics category
Entered into the stones category
A Mermaid's Dream
Entered into the seed beads category
(See how the whole piece doesn't show? I should have had the clasp and dangle showing in back...)
Entered into the Hearts category (Isn't that silly? I don't know why they have a hearts category. I think it sponsors something... Anyway, you're supposed to use heart shaped beads or images in your work.)
Entered into the metal/ wire category
(Another piece where the clasp isn't showing...)
Entered into the glass category
(the last piece not completely showing...)
Berries on the Vine
Entered into the Pearls category
