~Scarlett Lanson~ of The Beader’s Muse in partnership with Artbeads.com and Rainbows of Light has developed a friendly competition for beader’s. I had reservations…not my colors, time an issue.
I contacted Scarlett and asked about delivery time.
The package arrived quick. I received an interesting assortment that did not fit what I had planned. Less than 2 weeks and I leave my studio for the summer. aargh. Stitched every night after work. And ripped it out every morning before work for one week.
A bit more info…the requirement is to use the MUSE. The MUSE is one
of the items in the package. It is a secret until the package is opened. And it remains a secret. Only to be revealed to the general public on Scarlett’s site when the judging is final!
Back to my saga. I finished today
. I closed my
studio this afternoon. I am allowed to show bits of what I created…just not the MUSE!
I have made this wonderful lariat that is long enough to also be worn wrapped as choker. Supple, the colors worked! and I incorporated a Blown Polymer piece! The hidden half has the MUSE…
I do believe there is still time to get in on the fun. Here is the link USE THE MUSE II
Oh, for the inquiring minds…the MUSE told me this…
Salacia, the wife of Neptune, wore these adornments. Without them her powers faded. I embody the lost gift of Neptune (Poseidon). Then my hunt began to find the remainder of the pieces to again make Salacia’s royal jewels whole. The magnificent gift from the ruler of the ancient Romans, Jupiter (aka Zeus), was destroyed by Hera (Juno) in one of her many fits of jealousy. I created a new one…shhh.
