If you love beautiful beadwork then head on over to Scarlett Lanson's site thebeadersmuse.com to see what the muse was and what it inspired! The work is wonderful. The judges had a very difficult time, I'm sure. And Scarlett is amazing to pull together a contest that has become international.
No, my entry didn't win a prize, but I had fun working on it and I now have a great freeform necklace that I just love!
This is the necklace and here is a close up of the Muse as I used it.
