Beads of Clay Designer Challenge

My professional ceramic bead makers group, Beads of Clay ( recently sponsored a challenge.  5 bead makers were asked to donate components with a sky blue and sand color theme to 5 jewelry designers that like to use art beads.  The designers were asked to make 2 pieces using the componenents provided.
I was randomly chosen to make the pendant.
Today the results of the challenge were revealed.
Go to the above link to take a tour of the great results! It is interesting to see how each designer uses the same components in their own individual ways.
