Beads Direct - Beading Games Competition

Beads Direct ran a competition around the theme of the Olympic Games rings, seeing as the Olympics were being held in the UK this summer.

I decided to enter, and entered my Black Spider Web Jasper Sterling Silver Necklace in to the stringing category, which I came in second place. So the surprise package I received was my prize, which included a silver engraved medal.

    What a great surprise, well done. You can now say you are on Olympic silver medalist! Apparently in the early days the Olympics the events were not restricted to sports, there was art, sculpture, music events. I think we should get these events back!
