Bead Dreams winners announced...

Polymer Clay

1st Place - Carol Simmons - Korean Embroidery Series

2nd Place - Julie Picarello - Cityscape

3rd Place - Louise Fischer Cozzi - Symmetry Denise Necklace

Since I know what Julie Picarello entered, I'll show you her gorgeous 2nd place piece here. Hopefully, Cynthia Tinapple will show her good friend Carol Simmon's winning entry in the Polymer Clay category. I can't wait to see what amazing work Louise Fischer Cozzi entered...I'm sure it's stunning :o)

A list of Bead Dreams winners in all of the categories can be seen here.

Congrats to all of the finalists and winners!

Hi Barb,
I'm so disappointed. I love the winners' works but I think your's was so extraordinary...something that hasn't been seen before and it has the "scratch the head" element that the others didn't.
I hope it doesn't discourage you.
I'm leaving the house in about 20 minutes to go to the B&B show so hopefully I'll get to see them all in person. The weather has moved out of here but is now heading towards Milwaukee so who knows if we'll get there....or get back. The flights look okay but I'm taking all the face stuff in case we get stuck overnight...
I'm anxious to see all the vendors..I looked at the map and jeez-louise! It's going to be tough to see 1/4 of it in 4 hours!

Crap...that sounded like I was dismissing the others and I definitely wasn't. Maybe they just need a few more categories!!!!

Thanks for being such a good friend Susan. You are always so supportive. It sounds cliche, but it really is an honor to be a finalist. :o)

Hey Barb,
I cc'd you in on my note to Scott about my B&B mis-adventures. I sent it to your hotmail address but maybe that's not the one you use much (?) so wanted you to check it.
