I took home an FMG Gold!
« on: September 12, 2014, 05:05:20 PM »

So the seed bead competition has always been elusive.  Five years in a row I have entered.  Then this year something amazing happened - I was selected to go to semi-finals.
Well...

I Took home a Gold medal!   :headbang: :toothy10: :thumbsup: :blob1: :glasses9:

The main stone is a cabochon cut by the awesome Krystee, goddess of Agate and Obsidian!

You can Thank Phish for the fun emoticons Krystee!   :icon_sunny:

Thanks everyone!  I was about to give up on the seed bead category because it just seemed like it was near impossible to get anyplace, and then BAM!   :thumbsup:

Thanks guys, I'm flying on cloud nine!

I was going to try to enter the Saul Bell Competitions for 2015, but their deadline is this October 3rd, and with the move taking place right now I don't have the time to finish and enter a piece.
