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 a “2nd 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!
Below are the participants and their blogs. Please click over and take a look at each design. Also, hop over to Sharyl’s blog.
