Beading Challenge 2 "The Results"

Okay I am done waiting for everyone to get me their pictures to post this. Those of you who participated and got your earrings done on time THANK YOU! and I am sorry it took so long to post this. Here is a picture of the beads everyone had to work with that DesignedbyLucinda sent out.

Once again it just goes to prove that it IS possible to have similar looking designs with no prior knowledge of someone else's designs.

I am normally a very even tempered person but I do have to say how terribly disappointed I am in the remaining people who agreed to participate and then did not.
DesignedbyLucinda went to a lot of trouble and expense to send those beads out to the participants. Saying you just didn't like the beads or you didn't like the way your design turned out and then choosing not to do the challenge is extremely unprofessional. The exception to this statement is SantiamDesigns who was too ill to participate. I don't know if we will continue to do this or not.

I share in your disappointment in the unprofessionalism of the "no shows". Kudos to those who kept their promise and did the challenge. It's a great experiment and I always get excited to see the results. Great of you and Lucinda for doing this. Thanks!

Huh, that is interesting - particularly how many incorporated circular elements. Shame more didn't participate, but even these few results is enlightening!

wow, that is fascinating. It is definitely too bad more people didn't follow up.

I love it, and it's fun to see the differences too! If you do continue, count me in. I'm a reliable gal and won't let you down.
