2nd Bead Packet Design Challenge

Note:  I set this blog article to run early this morning at 1:30 am to coincide with Sharyl’s, but for some reason it didn’t work.  🙁  Anyhooos …. here it is:

For those who have been following Sharyl on her blog you know she has a2nd Bead Packet Design Challenge” going on this month, where jewelry designers purchase a set of 9 pre-picked NKPBEADS and come up with their own designs …Here is a link to her original blog post: Click Here

 Because my beads were in the spotlight I decided to make things more interesting by throwing in a $25 gift certificate to one of the participants by drawing a name out of a ‘hat’, randomly of course.  Here is a link to that blog post:  Click Here

For the ‘hat’ I used one of my pots that I made out of sparkly micacious clay.  I printed out the entries, cut and folded them before placing them into the pot.    I swirled my hand around exactly 20 times and then picked out a name.  

  The winner is: Whimsical Monkey!

WMPlease leave your email address in the comments and I will contact you with instructions on how to collect your $25 in beads from my NKP Beads etsy store.
