My good friend Jill Kollmann collaborated with me on this month's blog prize. She created the beautiful rose colored flower basket beads flanking one of my image transfer pendants, and also the other rose colored oval beads in this very special design. Jill's innovative flower basket beads were featured in an ad in recent Polymer Cafe magazine issues for vintagejewelrysupplies.com (one of my favorite sources for unusual findings and the daffodil yellow cut crystal teardrop beads in this necklace.)
I hope I did Jill's beads justice. I wanted to create something colorful to celebrate the beginning of Summer here in this part of the world. I just love Jill's flower basket beads. She can create any color combination or flower combination you could wish for, and I hope you will check out her shop at Etsy to see more of her beautiful work.
So, you know what to do. Leave a comment, either about the necklace or about your plans for Summer. No purchase is necessary, of course. On July 1, I'll pull a winner at random from among the comments and will post the winner's name here. If you do not have email enabled on your blog, please include your email address in the comment, so I will know how to find you.
Thanks again, Jill, for creating such gorgeous beads for me to use in the prize this month. Happy Summer, everyone!
