I am speechless

And Peter would probably love to be here to see that.

Heather of Humble Beads wrote a post over on ABS encouraging people to enter the Bead Star contest. Largely, because of those words, I did. And guess what? My bracelet is a finalist in the under $25 section. Thank you Heather!


In fact I am so surprised that I truly am finding it hard to find words to write here. But my immediate reaction to this is how grateful I am to all of you who have given me so much encouragement and support over the last few months.


Thank you!

Thanks all of you! I'm still a little stunned.

Erin, I like making jewelry just don't consider myself a jeweler, if you know what I mean. And my daughter hasn't even seen the bracelet. So I think she'll be a little surprised.

That is such a lovely piece. I voted for it before I knew who it belonged to. I agree about the speechless part...being in the company of such great design talent is really quite humbling. I am so glad that Heather inspired you to enter. It is truly deserving of the honor! Enjoy the day! Erin
