OFFICIAL BEAD STAR RESULTS: 1st Place in Plastics Category!!!

2009-12-02 16:02

It's official!!! My neckpiece won 1st Place in the Plastics Category in the 2nd Annual Bead Star 2009 Contest!!!
Yes, I (and all of my fellow PCAGOE members) would have liked a dedicated "Polymer Clay" category, but that probably won't happen. Afterall, one of the contest's likely purposes it to promote pre-made beads and the purchase thereof. Well, polymer clay artists do purchase a lot of beads, but we also create a lot of them ourselves from raw material.
Anyway, I'm honored that over 26,000 online voters made their choices, and that without knowing for certain what material they were viewing, picked a piece made almost entirely of polymer clay as the winner!
This piece IS CURRENTLY BEING AUCTIONED on eBay, with proceeds to benefit the American Heart Association's women's heart-health initiative.
