I entered Beadaholique‘s “Ocean Treasures” Beading Challenge with my Beadwoven Starfish and Seaglass Earrings and was chosen as a finalist!
In my design I wanted to highlight the seaglass pendant beads I had bought from Beadaholique and wanted my entry to be simple enough for anyone with basic beadweaving knowledge to make themselves.
The starfish are beadwoven in herringbone, also called Ndebele, stitch using Fireline and round seed beads in sizes 8/0 and 11/0 and incorporate a wire guard for easy connection to the kidney earwires. The Seaglass Pendants are attached to a very short length of chain to allow them to hang just below the starfish.
Voting is open till the 14th August. One US finalist and one International finalist can each win a $100 gift voucher from Beadaholique. The photo with the most “Likes” wins!

Last week I entered Beadaholique’s Contest to Win A Lifetime Artfire Pro eCommerce Store.
I love ArtFire to bits, so the chance to win a free-for-life store was brilliant!
There wasn’t enough time for me to order new supplies all the way from the US, but luckily I am already a Beadaholique customer and already had some of their supplies in hand. I decided to make a simple design that best highlighted the materials used and sent off my entry.
