Working on that Kumihimo necklace yesterday got me flexing some jewelry making muscles that have been long dormant. I'm feeling the itch. Perhaps I'll work on a few pieces over the months to put in my back pocket until the next Bead Star competition comes around.
In the meantime, however, it's your beady duty to go vote for the winners in all 9 categories. I'm so delighted to see the work of quite a few of my peers and friends represented as both designers, and the creator of various pieces and parts. It's a love fest of beads!
