A Rising Star in 2013

The new challenge for the EtsyBeadweavers Team for January is an exciting one. It does not revolve around a specific theme or type of beadweaving, but rather, the only requirement is that the members who enter have not previously won a challenge in the past 3 years. This gives a lot of us “little guys” a chance to shine, for the rising stars we have become.

For my entry, I am offering up my latest beaded rhinestone headband. I created it in honor of the 2013 Pantone color of the year: emerald. This gorgeous green also happens to be my birthstone, which is pretty great considering I look fabulous in it.

The beaded applique features several different glass and crystal rhinestones (the tiny light green ones being from vintage stock), and layers and layers of hand beaded embroidery. The felt piece is stitched to black ribbon, long enough to tie around any head, or waist as a belt or sash.

My entry is just one of many fantastic creations, all of which can be seen at the team blog. From the 9th to the 15th you can vote for your favorite entry, giving one special team member a chance to really shine.
