I won!!!


This is a terribly late entry - I should have added this days ago, but wanted to share with everyone my joy as I won the Art Deco Challenge for the monthly challenge for the Etsy Bead Weavers team. I am so excited and surprised as this was my first entry and this cuff caused me a lot of lost sleep and stress! I almost did not get it finished in time to enter the challenge!

Thank you to everyone who took the time to vote. Your kind comments and compliments about this bracelet make me feel so loved. I feel very honored to have won among such stiff competition! There are always so many fabulous entries and I am often in awe of the competition or entries.

Unless inspiration strikes me soon - I don't believe I will be entering this month's challenge of complimentary contradictions. I just seem to be drawing a huge blank on this one.

On a personal note, I have been having minor issues with my left eye that I believe is being caused by allergies - so I have not been on the computer very much.

Jules, as I stated before and will continue to do so, your cuff caught my attention from the minute you posted about it in the etsy thread.

This is an absolutely stunning design and so deserving of the recognition. Now isn't all that stress worth it? :)

Thank you both - I appreciate your comments.

And yes - the stress was worth it.
