Buttercup Wins an Award!

So excited that the adorable Buttercup has won an Honorable Mention in the Jewelry, Bead, and Gem Arts competition by Interweave!

Buttercup was my first non-jewelry competition piece, and my first award! Someone asked me how long it took to make, and I totally laughed. You mean I’m supposed to keep track?!?! I worked on her pretty exclusively for 3 months, but the number of hours are somewhere in the “ridiculous” category. Let’s just say – she was worth it. Buttercup sits proudly on my fireplace mantle in the living room and will always be a reminder that stepping outside the box is a risk worth taking.
