I have to blow my trumpet just a little here. I was recently voted best "First Time Entrant" in the Connect triangle bead challenge. It was a challenge organised through the Bead Society of Victoria via their in house magazine Connect. Whilst I have won a small challenge before, voted by my beading forum peers, this one was judged outside of the forum. I was so pleased to have been recognised. The necklace had originally been designed for cubes and fire polish czech crystal however once I saw details of the competition I decided to do it with triangles instead. I incorporated St Petersberg, brick stitch and a spiral rope. Materials used were : seed beads sizes 11 and 6, triangles Size 11 and a mixture of Swarovski 3mm, 4 mm and 6 mm crystals. The findings are antique gold. My brain finds it so hard to create something that is not symmetrical so it was a true challenge for me.
