Remember the gorgeous African bone beads For the Love of Beads sponsored some time ago?  The giveaway was won by Heather Cote of Azure Islands Jewelry. She was delighted to have won the cylindrical beads.  Heather said on her blog that it took a while to come up with the design but it was worth the wait!  She teamed the beads with brown/black agate and crazy lace agate beads and added pewter beads for a metallic touch. The final design is just beautiful!

Just to compare, here is Heather's photo of the original giveaway beads by themselves.

BTW The winner of the last giveaway (opal gemstones) hasn't contacted me yet!  Please do soon as I will have to redraw.
