RECYCLE/UP-CYCLE BEAD CHALLENGE WINNERS
BIG THANK YOU! to the creative members who shared their work with us.
The challenge was to create a piece of art using a Starbucks coffee drink bottle. There was quite a range of work, which is always the fun part. It was great to see the creativity and the wide range of materials and final results. The winners from our members voting were:
First: Jillian Maresco, for her bottle decoupaged with dark blue tissue paper and images of birds and butterflies. The neck of the bottle was encircled with rhinestone chain and seed beads.
Second: Jill Bartel, for her bottle covered in various beads, cabochons, rosemontes, crystals, chain, and rhinestone chain. The bottle was crowned with painted wood pieces and a winged goddess trophy top.
Third: Jeanette Easley, for her bottle combining beads and spirals of copper wire that were grouted in place. The lid of the bottle was decorated with copper foil tape and a cabinet knob.
