I also submitted my entry for the Beadwork Pattern Play Challenge. My inspiration was a shirt that I purchased at Old Navy. I loved the bright colors, and the seahorses. :) I bought the shirt long before Beadwork issued the challenge, and I had planned for a long time to make a bracelet to go with it, but when I got the info about the challenge, I kicked my butt into gear and used a variation of circular peyote/brick stitch to create beaded circles based on the ones in the pattern. I also used hook and eye closures to fasten it so that it looks seamless when worn. I think it turned out well! We'll have to see what the Beadwork editors think. I tell you what, I've seen some entries from other similar competitions, and there are some SUPER creative people out there. So, good luck to all.
Have a great day! (I'll probably spend at least an hour of it streaming an episode of Seaquest from Netflix with my mom. Anybody wanna join?)
