And so it begins. I've been thinking about starting a blog for a long time. I just recently finished the neckpiece pictured here for the Etsy Beadweavers May Challenge and decided that this provided the perfect opportunity to get started.
The Etsy BeadWeavers is a group of beaders who market their creations on Etsy.com. The Beadweavers' creations are different from many of the traditional beaded items, in that they are woven from hundreds or thousands of tiny beads to create intricate designs and pictures. These weavings take the form of both art and jewelry. Each piece takes many hours to
complete, with some larger pieces taking weeks or even months.
Each month the team hosts a theme challenge for its members. The May Challenge was "Hollywood Red Carpet Creations". The neckpiece pictured here was my entry to the challenge. It is called the "Night of Stars".
Here's the favor part. Please visit the EtsyBeadWeavers' blog between May 9th through May 15th to see all the incredible entries in this challenge and VOTE for your favorite! http:www.etsy-beadweavers.blogspot.com
