Bead Dreams Deferred

I'm not going to dry up or sag or explode, but I did not get into Bead Dreams with my DNA sculpture. I'm not surprised, I know that the competition is really stiff. I'm disappointed but not crushed. The best part about it was that they told me I didn't get in via real mail. I think that's pretty classy.

In other news, I made a new necklace. I got the focal with a box of other cabochons at an estate sale some time ago. I didn't know what it was beyond "some sort of agate", so I took it to a rock guy over the weekend. He was very excited by the stone and told me it was a Priday Plume Agate, rare and choice and desirable. That was fun! No photos yet, but soon.

I didn't get in this year, either. It was a little crushing since I'd made it in last year, but it just fuels my fire to do something spectacular for next year.

Besides, you're still awesome!!!

Oh, I'm sorry DNA didn't make it into the competition. It's really a cool idea.

You know, it's just mean for you to post about having a new necklace and NOT INCLUDE A SINGLE PICTURE!!! What are you thinking?!?!
