Judging is over, voting is closed and the WINNERS ARE IN!

So many beautiful entries to the Beaded Passion contest! It was tough to choose between the entries, but here we are. May I present the winners!

Best Entry: 'Lacy' by JewelryTales' Cynthia Newcomer showcases the artist's talent with manipulating beadwork's form into intricate filigree-like designs, far surpassing my own ability with the technique. One never runs out of new things to learn. Take a bow, Cynthia!

Most Unusual Entry: Fingal Frolics by Karyn. This is definitely a different kind of design! She says "I made all of the glass fused cabochons myself in my microwave kiln and the piece was stitched using a variety of seed beads and Swarovski crystals."

And the People's Choice by a landslide majority vote: Out of Africa by Debger! The patience it requires just to do a pendant with bead embroidery is impressive, and she's done an entire cuff! The variety of finishes give the safari colour scheme nice depth.
