I was just notified that a pair of my earrings and a necklace are finalists in this year's Fire Mountain Gems Beading Contest. Too cool! So they'll be featured in a catalog sometime next year! Fire Mountain is the first bead catalog I ever ordered from, and I continue to use it to this day for certain things. Their catalogs are free, so if you've ever wanted to try beading, I highly recommend getting one! But beware, beading is addictive!
