Check out my swaps!

My third clutch of dragon babies are ready to leave the nest, I'm so proud of them! These are my offerings in my third Christi Friesen-themed dragon bead swap, all of which I have signed up for at the swaps page on Polymer Clay Central. Swapping is so fun. This time around, one of the major issues was to try to keep our dragons to the size of a quarter. In the first two rounds, the dragons were rather large and dare I say- unwearable. I plan to put all 25 (whew!) of mine into a shadow box once I get my swapped dragons. It is so fun to get a box in the mail with other artist's interpretations of the theme, I can't wait!!! And, I was really smart- the swap is for two groups of 5, and this time I made myself one of each to keep!!!! They are embellished with Swarovski Crystal chatons and either goldfilled or sterling silver eyes. So fun!

Congratulations to (drum roll) and her pieces Love is Ageless for winning our first Monthly Challenge!!!! The competition was fierce, and the lead changed many times over the 2 days of voting. Second place was only 3 votes behind the winner. Sandy will receive 10 blocks of clay, 3 tins, 3 sets of beads, a $10 gift certificate to Michael's and $10 gift certificate to and of course the prestige of winning!

Many of the entrants commented that it was difficult to pick their favorite and that the contest was great because they found so many new favorites! The voter winner was picked this morning using an old standby, names in a bucket with the winner being chosen by a non-biased 4 year old!

And the winner was snowyangel! Thanks to all of the all of the contest entrants!
