Announcing the Crescent Design Challenge Winners

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!
