Kalmbach Bead Soup - Winners!

I participated in the Kalmbach Bead Soup Party recently.  It was a celebration of Lori Anderson's new book Bead Soup Party.  I received a bead soup from the shop Your Beading Heart in the mail back in October.  I had until November 2nd to create a necklace and send off a picture to Kalmbach Publishing.  Everyone's creations were posted on Kalmbach's facebook page.  Check out the Kalmbach Bead Soup Party Album to see all of the beautiful pieces everyone made.

The first round of winners were Lori's picks.  They win one of Lori's bead soup kits how lucky!!

The second round of winners were the Kalmbach Publishing office staff favorites.  How surprised was I to find out that I was one of the winners!
I will receive the new book, Crystal Jewelry Inspiration from the Create Your Style Ambassadors.
As you can see I was in good company:

There were also these 3 random winners These winners will receive a autographed copy of Anna Elizabeth Draeger's new book, Great Designs for Shaped Beads.

After adding all the votes from facebook and those tallied from the office the final winners are selected:

Aren't they beautiful?

I am so thrilled that I was chosen as one of the office favorites.  I'm new to the world of jewelry making and this has given me the inspiration I needed to keep going.....
