Color Challenge Winner!

First, thanks to everyone who entered the Turquoise Color Challenge sponsored by Margie Deeb and Humblebeads.  Your creations were amazing and it was fun to see how different everyone interprets the same color palette.

Our grand prize winner is:

Lyn Foley!

Margie commented on Lyn's use of color, "The artist has made this Spring palette dance. Rather than choosing a dominant color, she splashes the entire bracelet with all the palette members.

Lyn has won 2 years worth of Color Reports from Margie Deeb and a $50 gift certificate to

all of the pieces were wonderful! i just found your blog and am so glad that i did.
can you direct me to a shop that sells the high quality lampwork beads such as the first piece was made. I can only find lampwork beads that look cheap.

I appreciate it and I LOVE your blog and will be receiving your newsletter:)
