I won a prize - BSBP7

The fantastic Bead Soup Blog Party. The big international and annual beading event arranged by wonderful Lori Anderson of PrettyThingsBlog. All the reveals for the 7th one, were back in April. And then in May Lori announced the winners. That was a new feature for this year, the chance to win prizes also, and you can read all about it in this post on Lori's blog. 46 winners were chosen by 7 judges, and from more than 900 contributing jewelry pieces.

I am so proud and honoured to announce that I won the category "Judges Choice" by NinaDesigns (it was a tie between me and another designer, NinaDesigns couldn't pick just one).

Here's a close up of the linen cording, the beads and the knotting.

On Pinterest you can see pictures of all the contributions on a special Pinterest board, and here's the link. So much eye candy there for you to see. So many beautiful and inspiring pieces.

And if you want to read my own reveal post again, and see the other things I designed for the party, you can check out this link.

A couple of weeks ago I recieved my prize beads from NinaDesigns, with a couple of extra bonus charms thrown in there by Lori (thank you so much!!!). The Nina beads and the pendant are Sterling Silver. And I absolutely adore them. The whole thing is really a giant bonus. To win some wonderful beads just like that :-). Thank you so much NinaDesigns!!!

I am also very happy (and proud) that my partner Agi Kiss of MoonSafariBeads also won. With pieces she had made from the lot (the soup) I had sent to her. She won 2 - TWO - of the categories. Wow! Congratulations Agi!

All my best,

That stone pendant is spectacular!! I LOVE the way you've knotted it, that has never occurred to me before to do it that way. All those strands of cording add so much to the necklace, I love their texture along side the smooth stones and shiny metal.
