Thank you and An Exciting Achievement a BeadStar Finalist

My Desert Dusk necklace     Finalist for BeadStar in Seed Beads

I want to thank all of you for your wonderful comments on the bracelet I made for the 7000 Bracelets for Hope  blog hop.  You were all so encouraging and generous with you time and words.  Thank you SO much.
I also am very excited to see that I was included as a Finalist in the BeadStar Competition in Seed Beads.  That means that my necklace along with 19 other lovely pieces was chosen to be voted on for the final winners in that category.  I am especially pleased to be a finalist in the seed bead category because of my free style and intuitive, rather than patterned approach to bead weaving.  I feel so honored,  If you want to vote on all or any of the 8 categories for BeadStar please click here.  The link will take you to the page where you can view all of the finalists.  They are spectacular.
