We want to send out a BIG Thank You to all of the incredibly talented beaders that sent in entries to our CzechMates Crescents Challenge! 14 pieces were entered, and we love every one of them!
It was very hard to pick our winners with such a great pool to draw from. The staff here at Bello Modo all voted for their favorites but please know there was not one that was not appreciated. We hope you love the beautiful beading you see here today, and if you are curious about patterns and designs please contact the makers, try Facebook, and if you need help we will do our best to help the two of you connect. From all the designs you can see that the Crescents do have some very wonderful uses.
Without further ado, here are our winners!
Norma Jean Dell: Thoraxian Stars
We love the view of the back of this piece, its as clean and tidy as the front! And, as an extra treat, here it is in another colorway.
You can find the tutorial on Norma Jean’s website.
Amy’s Treasures: Tula Bracelet Set
Amy entered these beautiful works designed by her friend Eva Kovacs. We love the dense layers and mix of textures in these pieces.
Eva Rushton: Green & Purple Necklace
We love the rich colors of this piece and its thorny twisted shape. Congratulations Eva!
In no particular order, here are the wonderful runners-up. They are all fantastic pieces, and we wish every one of them could be first prize. Thank you so much to everyone who entered! All runners up will receive a $10.00 Gift Certificate via email.
