Vote for my Etsy Beadweavers November Challenge Entry!

I've joined the Etsy Beadweavers Team just in time to enter their November beading challenge! The Etsy Beadweavers is a group of beading artists who have shops on Etsy.com where they sell their bead woven jewelry. There are over 200 amazing artists in this group! I couldn't believe when I joined how many talented bead-weavers there were on Etsy.

The November challenge is called "Beauty of the Flower". The goal of the contest was to choose a tropical flower and model a piece of jewelry after it, as realistically as possible. Check out the Etsy Beadweavers blog to vote for your favorite entry! You can vote from now until November 15th, and my entry is #13.

This is my entry:

"Draped Expectations" Bugles

Looking for the hard-to-find 15mm Czech bugles I used in my "Draped Expectations" necklace? You can find these exact beads, plus the size #2 Czech bugles I used and many others too online at Beads East. Just look in the "Seed Beads" section, then in "Bugle Beads".
