OH MY!! What an evening I had last night!! I received this letter from Fire Mountain Gems…..and I’ve been doing the ‘happy dance’ since!! I have entered several time in this contest but I have never moved into the finals!! As you can see my Pure White Wedding Elegance Set is beadweaving, however because of the number of Swarovski Crystals it also qualities in that contest!! I just can’t tell you how excited I am!! This was one of my biggest and best jewelry creations….to have it be recognized…more HAPPY DANCE!!
