Bead Dreams 2009 – Polymer Clay category

Congratulations Diane Villano for coming in first place in the polymer clay category of the 2009 Bead Dreams competition!


This is an especially sweet victory for Diane because her entry “Big Bead – Chinese Cinnabar” has been over 5 years in the making.


Second place went to Kathy Shield Dummer for “My Mothership Connection”.


Third place finisher was Lynne Ann Schwarzenberg for “Dreams in Kabela”.


There were only 6 finalist entries in the polymer clay category this year.  Congratulations also go to the other finalists:  Janice Abarbenel


Christelle Van Lingen


and Luidmyla Heggland.


Unless I completely run out of energy, I’ll be posting later about my day.

  5. Thank you very much for that first photos! Of course congratulations to all winners and I am proud to see my work close them (because I started to work with PC only 1 year ago). But delightful news can help to develope my skills)))
