Use the Muse - Contest

In my many blogging travels, I found this wonderful link and have been hanging out for weeks for the details of this contest to be announced. Well guess what, they have been. The "Use the Muse" is the brainchild of Scarlett Lanson, a Bead Artist based on the U.S. - and she shares her love of beads and co-ordinates this competition so that others can share her passion. The "Use the Muse II" contest is open to all beaders worldwide.

It's worth a look, just for seeing the beautiful entries from the previous contest ... LOL there's even someone on there that I know and love from the Beading Forum - congratulations Cindy on your win. :)

Blue Wired Cuff

My latest offering .... but I think I may keep this for myself. It looks mighty fine on my wrist, so why not!!!

This is one of the ones I started on Sunday while at the Craft Fair (post below) ... and I finally got around to finishing it this morning. It features a Jan Cahill Kalera focal, and I've tried to pick up the colours in the frit she's used. I've also got some Anne Dundas little lampies in there (the apricot/pink ones).

Doing this has definately got me in the mood to do more wirework - something I haven't done in a long time. So with that in mind, I guess I can start on one of my Swarovski Comp pieces which is all wire - LOL, please notice I said "one" of my pieces ... I have so many designs down on paper at the moment it's beyond the joke!!!!
