May Calendar Challenge Favorites Announced!

Congratulations to Bev M. for her "Rio Dulce" bracelet taking the top spot as a favorite for the May Calendar Challenge! This gorgeous bracelet is a Marcia DeCoster pattern interpreted spectacularly by Bev.

Close behind "Rio Dulce" is Lynn M.'s "Wings" necklace. Lynn is a master of freeform beading and it really shows in this exciting piece. The cab was made by our own Harry S.

In third place is Jersey Jeanne's "Geisha in the Gold Pagoda." Jeanne recently found the little lampwork geisha, and her sister, hiding in a box in a closet, where they had been for two years and were thought to be lost! The delicate little geisha is accented beautifully by the rest of the beadwork.

All of the entries for May were gorgeous and, as usual, it was very hard to pick just one to vote for! Thank you to everyone who participated! These three ladies and their wonderful work are very well deserving of this recognition. Photos of all of the entries, including the three favorites, can be found in the slideshow below. We are definitely looking forward to seeing the lineup for June.
