Highly commended for Sukathai Gold


What a lovely New Year's present - I have just recieved my Highly Commended Award certificate for my entry in the Victorian Bead Society's (BSV) 2010 Bead Challenge. I called it Sukathai Gold and as usual taking a good photo seems almost as much a challenge as the beadwork did. The BSV challenge entrants all began with the same beads but could add to those in designing their entry. Here's a taster of what I did with mine. It was a long necklace that featured three large focal beaded beads that I created using my own beaded bead design, the challenge beads and some lovely 24ct gold-plated Japanese Delica beads.

To see the other award winners pop by their website - great inspiration for beaders around the world and those who love beadwork.

Thanks for taking the time to comment and for such supportive comments - creating is a joy (and at times a challenge) in itself but it is lovely to have recognition for the outcome from others.
