Editor’s Note: I changed the names to letters to make it more anonymous.

  1. I love, and have used, these two-hole German beads myself; something about them is just enchanting! The creative ways your contestants have used them are truly inspired! My (hard to choose but has to be done) choice is the last one, by Shel. I love the colors and the German beads really lend themselves to the Czech flowers. Nicely Don, Shel!


  2. Maybe we shouldn’t have our names on them, ’cause I don’t want to OBVIOUSLY vote for myself!!!!! So, I won’t vote.. thanks for the challenge, Bello Modo!!!


  3. Thanks for supporting the challenge, Bello Mondo. Because I feel all names, artists and voters, should be omitted, I’ll have abstain this time. Kudos to all who participated!


    1. I changed the names to letters. Sorry, I guess I thought first names were not that identifiable but I did not take into consideration the members of the society who would know the makers.
