July 2004 Bead Challenge: Vacation / Travel

Go Back      

When you bring a bead for the challenge and display it, you are eligible to put your name in a drawing for a Challenge Prize.  Sometimes it is a gift certificate, or a magazine subscription.  This month if was one of the new 2004 Bead Totes contributed by Rick Hidding.

Marcia Manual won the drawing this month.  Her vacation themed bead has a delicate looking crab on it.  If you see your bead here, please let the Web Mama know which it is so we can put your name under it. (Conversely, if we have put your name under a bead and you'd prefer not to be identified, let us know that too.)

 June Manis made this standout beautiful blue and white bead.

 A wonderful colorful bracelet filled with some summer creatures - if the photo was less blurry you could see a duck and a frog.  Who made it?

This is a beauty - very cosmic - Tell us who made it.

Robert &  Camille Simmons usually submit  beaded pieces with lampwork focals.  But we've learned this is not theirs.  So who made this beautiful piece and is it bead crochet or another stich? And did you make the bead too?

  

Are these boro - the one on the right is, mushroom shaped.

Joan Hoffacker made this hot and fiery strand - a perfect reflection of our summer weather.
