Victoria's Bead

I used black polymer clay over a big fat wooden macrame' bead. I moulded the clay in a Krafty Lady mould of a Celtic knot and edged it with the stamp strip from the Goddess sheet. I rubbed on some gold Pearl ex and took some gold jump rings and smooshed em in at the top and bottom of the circles. I took some fringe and rolled it and sewed it tight to keep it from coming undone and attached a lenght of fiber to it and pulled it threw the top of the bead. I stamped the goddess stamp onto black shrink plastic with gold Brilliance ink pad and colored in with metalic pencils. Added a jump ring for the star to dangle from and wired it to the tassel with a small clay bead in gold. Added 2 more beads of clay to the top. The one on the top is from the Krafty Lady mold only this time the clay was rolled onto itself.

Fourth Place: Barbara Tobey
Barbara recieved a $25 After Midnight Gift Certificate
