Not as many readers entered for FOR THE LOVE OF BEADS' giveaway but those who did really loved the look of organic beads. Many of you said it was definitely your style! So now you know where to go when you get bead cravings. You got to like online shopping at any time of day or night!

BTW hang in there Monica and Lisa (Lucid Moon Studio)- the recession will not last out forever!

What I really liked about the beads was not only their earthy look and the history behind trade beads but also the ability to evoke emotion especially for Denise. She kindly wrote to let me know how much she  loved the beads because it reminded her of her childhood in South Africa and her journeys to other parts of Africa. She said "It is so beautiful in Africa, it really is like those pictures you see at sunset with the deep reds. Of course the cities are big , busy and dirty just like many other cities. I do hope South Africa will recover and someday be the country it wishes to be."

Alas only one person though can win these beads. picked number 6 and the person who wrote the 6th comment is Heather Cote of Azure Islands Creations! Congratulations! Please email me asap with your shipping information.
