I just happened to stop by one of my favorite bead stores, Pink Flamingo Beads, that I probably haven't been to in well over a year - had to get some wood beads for my son as we were making hemp bracelets. As I was checking out, the gal at the counter had told me about this contest they were having. They had a big basket full of plastic shapes, different sizes and colors. You had to incorporate one of the pieces into a design that could be worn. I was intrigued as I saw a two-color half-moon that I knew I had scrap glass at home of the same color.

So.....here's where my Columbus peeps can help me out. Starting this week, they will have all the entries displayed in their store. If by chance you are in the Powell area - stop in and vote for me - please! They are also having a 10-year anniversary event going on September 23rd where again, you can see all the entries. Here's a flyer of what's going on during their event: -click on the flyer for larger view-
Now, these ladies at Pink Flamingo are serious beaders and my entry may very well be blown away by the beaders - but, it was fun and I don't think I've ever competed in a contest making jewelry! I'd love to hear your thoughts - leave a comment on my blog and when the contest is over (I think at the end of the month) I'll randomly pick someone to win this necklace! Just mention in the comment how much you love it and love me and that will score extra bonus points! Because really, a little boost to our ego (ass-kissing) is what we all want, right? LOL!
