Toggle Clasp in Spring Green in my Etsy Shop

The entry dates have been posted for Bead Star 2012!!!  They are  April 1, 2012, and ending on April 27, 2012.  You can get all the particulars for the annual bead contest here .

And even more exciting than that they have a Ceramics Category this year.Here is how they describe it:  CERAMICS: Designs created using predominantly ceramic beads.


                                So I thought I would offer a few suggestions from my Etsy Shop.

  10. Thanks for sharing the info, Mary. I've never entered before and I don't think I can squeeze it in. If I did, I would chose your Raku Fired Daisy! It is beautiful. And I'm glad to learn that a ceramics category was added!
