Entry by Bay Moon Design
 I decided to enter the necklace that is pictured above. This necklace includes glass pearls, denim blue fairy ribbon, and sterling silver bead caps. The fairy ribbon is from Marsha Neal Studio.  Two large blue glass pearls are framed in sterling silver bead caps. The necklace has some white czech beads, small glass pearls, and denim blue swarovski crystals. I love the patriotic red, white and blue colors.  These are the colors that jump out at me when I look at Sleeping Beauty.  The center of the necklace features a beautiful, lampwork focal by artist Kaz Baildon.  Her art bead is the bead that qualifies this as an enty.  It isn't too late to enter.  Click here to find out how.  There are some great prizes by this months sponsors.
