Bead Star Voting Has Begun!

The Bead Star voting is finally up!   I am very excited this year because my designs were selected "Top 20" in ALL nine categories.  This is a huge accomplishment for me.  I set out at the beginning of the year with a goal to design a piece for every category.  I was thrilled when I completed this task and I am over the moon that each piece was selected for the "Top 20".

My only down fall this year was my photographs.  I actually took all 9 pieces to a professional photographer.  She did such a horrible job that I ended up using half of my own photographs.

Please scroll down to the bottom to cast your vote!

Crystals - The Grand Chenier - # 20 

Glass - Roman Holiday  - # 19

    I am so excited for you to be in all 9 categories. That is a dream for sure.
    I love them all, but had little conflicts of interest in Pearls, Stones and Under $25 (*wink*).

    Best of luck, my friend!
    Enjoy the day! Erin

  5. All of your pieces are stunning...but my favs are the Roman Holiday and the Italia Regalia--voted for these even before I knew they were yours!
    Bead Happy!

  6. Hi Everyone
    Angela - I do have a photo box -ugh. Jen & Cecilia - Thank you so much. Erin - We both have a fascination with pearls. I think my under $25 photo is horrible along with seed beads. The stones pic was taken by the professional. Michelle - Wow I am excited you voted for my glass and pearls - they are my two favorites!

  7. You rock for sure, girl! "Death balls" is still my favorite, but I'm sure you will bring it in a bunch of categories.

  8. Congrats on making all 9 divisions! that is a fantastic accomplishment. I entered 4 pieces and was graced to make the top 20 in one division, alot of girly squeeling in my household... During my voting process, I was able to guess a few of yours right off the bat, and i have to say that Roman Holiday is stunning. Best of luck to you.


  9. Jess - what category and number. Let me know and congratulations!
