Nope.  Wouldn't use size 15's unless somebody paid me a FORTUNE.  But those earrings do look worth it .... almost worth it .... nah, I'd pay you, lol  ;D

Lovely earrings Lynn.  :)
Great note book Laney.  I like how you've included lampwork on it too.  :)

Can finally reveal my entry for this year's Battle of the Beadsmith on Facebook (the page is called BOTB'13, confusingly - FB wouldn't allow it to be renamed), 256 beaders from round the world paired up in head-to-head combat, the public votes on each round and winners go through to the next round and so on until only one beader remains standing.

I had fun with this, although branched fringe with crystals is awful prickly tangly stuff to stitch - I like this vintage-y colour combination and couldn't resist trying to do a proper subtle colour gradient with crystals instead of seed beads!

You can see more pics and the awesome creation by my opponent here and I thoroughly recommend browsing through all the photo albums here because once again the level of talent, skill and originality is just wonderful :)

I'll let you know when Group A voting is enabled although I fully expect (and deserve) to be knocked out in the first round again!
