Here she is…just in case you are not the voting type, I thought I would show you what made the finals: Introducing Sky Blue Dream… FYI! All supplies for this baby came from beadniks Denver, the awesome bead shop where I teach! Stephanie Lanker, the owner, is so committed to keeping the latest and greatest equipment and supplies in her fabulous store and is such a big support!
Darlene Jones is soooo amazing! She is the one who inspired me to enter the contest. She is a fabulous instructor, published jewelry designer and is the manager at beadniks. She not only has been a wonderful encourager, but has helped me to grow as a designer and instructor. Oh, might I add, she is one of my newest, but dearest friends!
Arlene Couchman, another instructor, fantastic designer and friend at beadniks, has also been super to learn/work with! Our late-nite bead fiestas, that’s what I just named them, have been so fun and inspiring. Her beadweaving is superb and never ceases to amaze me! One day I am going to try that too, Ar.
I can’t forget my sweet Ricky; he doesn’t like attention, but is the best hubby in the world! He even listens to me wax poetic about a stone that to him, must just look like a rock!
Lastly, but firstly is the Lord- I know I have said that I wouldn’t preach too much, but how could I not acknowledge the ONE who has blessed me in so many ways!
So, did it seem like I won an academy award or something? I just wanted to thank all of the wonderful people that have helped me grow!
It is so amazing to see all of the talented designs in the running. I had the hardest time figuring who to vote for… http://www.beadstar.com/
