But....I had great fun doing these, and will definitely use some of them again in other projects. The beads I've already created I had a design for, and will likely put that together after I get back from my trip to Washington DC this next week.
In the meantime, there's no point in waiting if I'm not going to enter....so...here are my beaded beads!
The little beaded stars are a component of the first bead, and I plan to use them in my design as well.
Good luck to all the contest participants!!
