Some of you may remember that earlier in the year I entered one of my Faux Raku paper bead bracelets into this contest. This was the first jewelry contest that I have entered. I didn't have a clue about what I was doing or what the judges were looking for but I decided to enter anyway. Well, I didn't place at all in this contest but I learned a lot along the way and had some fun doing it! Next year I will try to take great photos and write up a really great description of the piece that I enter. I also will come up with a really unique name for my piece. Now, onto this years winners that everyone has been waiting to see. Click on the button below if you want to view them online or you can pick up the October issue of Beadwork magazine where you can view all the winners on pages 21-27. There are some real gems in there! Congrats winners and good luck to all who enter next year.
