Cindi's Dragonheart Necklace (Heart Category).
Pearl Inferno (Pearl Category).
Whatever (Metal Category).
Sunset Canyon (Under $25.00 Category).
My friend Cindi, the owner of my favorite bead store, recently entered the Interweave Bead Star contest. The editors of Bead Star, Bead Work and Stringing magazines selected 20 finalists for each category (there were 9 categories). The winners will be selected by people like you and me by voting on the Internet. The winner gets put on the cover of Bead Star Magazine and a nifty trip to Santa Fe for the Bead Fest show in March 2010. Cindi entered all 9 categories (such an over achiever!) and was a finalist in 4 of those categories! She is a finalist in the heart, the metal, the pearl and the under $25 categories. I'm so excited for her and for me too, because she used one of my heart pendants and toggles in her piece for the heart category entry and one of my large bronze carved toggles in her entry in the metals category. I love when someone else does all of the work for me! If you get a chance, please go the the Bead Star website and vote by May 30th. Click here to vote. Thanks!
