Okay, this has gotten really off track - too much going on with the Bead Soup and life in general. So, let's get it back on track, shall we. I took a look back at the blog and it appears I hit the 700 post around November, 2010. From 600-700, there was a lot going on. I had started playing with resin, I had my first published pieces in "Stringing" magazine, we added a tank of hermit crabs to our household, and of course, there was lots of bead porn.
Here's what the 7th winner will receive:
"Creating Crystal Jewelry" by Laura McCabe. Even if you're not a seed beader/crystal afficionado, this book has lots of gorgeous eye candy. Laura's designs are stunning and unique (you wouldn't believe what she can do with a glass eyeball!)
Clockwise from top: purple organza ribbon, multi-colored fiber bundle, pink silk string, and another bundle of bright fibers.
Clockwise from top: gorgeous lampwork bead from Julsbeads, patinated red metal filigree pieces, polymer clay bird charm from Second Surf, and copper/black large link chain.
