Bead Star Winners Revealed!!

charlotte's necklace

YOO HOOO!! I have had to keep a secret from y'all for several months and I just got word this afternoon that I can reveal the news. My piece "Spring Into Action" won an Honorable Mention in Glass Category for the 2009 Bead Star Competition!!

I have had my copy of Bead Star magazine for about a week now. The designs are wonderful and it should be on newsstands soon. Inside, you'll find the instructions for making those big ole coiled springs bonging around this design as well as tutorials for all the other winning designs. How cool is that?

"Spring Into Action" won't be returning to the studio anytime soon though. It is staying with Interweave and will be auctioned off to raise money for the American Heart Association's women's heart-health initiatives during Bead Fest Santa Fe in March. I will be sure to let you know more details about that when I have them.

Congrats to all the winners!! YOO HOOO!!!

I just love this piece and wish that I were going to be where the auction is because I would so totally be coming home with it!!! The magazine is a good one... I will reveal next week! This design makes me really look forward to your new book, Kerry, because I want to learn how to make spoingy things! Thanks for the inspiration! Enjoy the day! Erin

Congrats, Ker. Wasn't surprised a bit that you did so well.
I'm also "heartened" to know the auction $$$ will be going to such a good cause.
My best friend died suddenly at the age of 47 of a heart attack.
