Anyone want to take a guess how many beads Rachele wove into this creation? So far, I've counted 14 cabochons, a lampwork bead, a glass button, over 100 bugle beads, a bunch of freshwater pearls and a gazillion seed beads.
Okay, I didn't count every bead, but you get my drift on how many hours Rachele poured into this piece weaving one bead at a time. Phew! Did you sleep last month Rachele? LOL!
Congratulations also goes to Smadar of SmadarsTreasure for her third place win with "Temptation Dance". Smadar describes this as a couple doing a sultry latino dance ... the man in black and the woman in hot red. Smadar creates the most elegant jewelry, and this gorgeous necklace is no exception!
Congratulations again Rachele, Olga and Smadar and congratulations to the entire EBW Team! Here are links to their shops and to the EBW Team blog.

Here is a photo of a convertible bracelet-necklace that I listed today in my Etsy shop, Beads and Weaves. I took more than 40 pictures of this piece, and they all disappoint me. The burgundy color of the beads coordinates so perfectly with the Vintaj brass components. And, don't even get me going on the colors of the Swarovski crystals. The wonderful colors just won't show up in my photos! I'm not a happy camper!
