Princess Sierra

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Princess Sierra was a finalist in the 2010 Fire Mountain Gem beading contest and is featured in their design catalog along with my profile. I really loved working on this piece even though at times I thought I would never get done stringing all those seed beads. I set my goal of getting her done by the entry deadline because I knew she would probably never get done if I didn't set myself a time limit. What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you have a design you have been wanting to try, go for it. As I looked at past winners online and in the catalog, I didn't think she stood a chance but just kept adding and adding elements. She is far more embellished that my original plan. Be flexible and see where your creativity takes you.
