I decided to enter the Use the Muse Contest by Scarlett Lanson. She is a young woman from Sedona, Arizona who is adding lots of energy and enthusiasm to the beading community. Her contest uses a "muse," which does not appear in the photo. Also missing is a lovely piece of ribbon. What's unique about this contest is that the entry needs to be finished by July 18th, so the design and beading needs to be completed in a relatively short time. I love the colors of the beads and hopefully will start getting ideas flowing in the next few days.
