I also entered a bead contest at my local bead store called Spring Fling, and I won! It was a "Use the Muse" inspired contest where each person bought a kit not knowing what the contents were and then made a necklace using the materials. I won a gift certificate which was pretty awesome considering everyone likes to spend money on beads!
Last but not least, I've been working hard on a tutorial for my Fire and Ice Cuffs. It's taking me forever, but I'd like to get it into my Etsy store by the end of the month. I've had a lot of requests for a tutorial for this bracelet, I just didn't realize how much work it would actually be to put one together. Have a great week, I'm off to work on that tutorial!
