Default Get your beads on the final NASA Shuttle Launch

It is a quick deadline of February 26 (in hand!) but if you would like to get your beads on the next space shuttle launch...the last one in the program, read how you can enter the latest contest here:

Maybe the artist's who had beads launched last time would like to tell how much fun we had seeing their beads go into space!

Good luck and please spread the word everywhere you can.

I made some beads this weekend. I'm dying to have someone look at the photos and give me feedback, but don't want to post them and influence any potential jury member. I must say, they turned out super cute.

Looking forward to seeing what you made Lara, after the contest is over you will have to post pictures.

I gave it a shot this weekend... tried to make the space shuttle. The shuttle isn't anything I'm happy with but I wrote out USA in a 8 mm space with black stringer which was a big accomplishment for me.

The best one that I made, is 1 mm in each direction too big. AUGH. Oh well, it will match a top I have, So I'll keep it. Another is JUST at the 31 mm. I need to work on smaller!

Lara, I totally did the same thing! 32mm...and I thought about doing some grinding but meh, it wouldn't look right.

You can still send your 'offs' to BOC.

Yup, will send all the offs, but this one, to BOC. I have a scrub top that it will match (has a space theme), so have to show off at work a little.

yeah.. I am having issues with getting them small enough as well. 1.25 inches is not a lot of real estate to work on for sculptural stuff. I have a 1.25 lentil press, so I keep that on my bench and can sort of size things up as I am working quickly. Just hold it over the press base and eyeball it

Feel free to facebook all your beady friends about it too!

We have a guild meeting tomorrow, there will be an announcement made and encouragement given for members to participate.. us Florida folks have to keep the bar high to meet or beat having 2 members with beads that went up last time. I know of at least 2 of us working on space beads now.

I am gonna toss out a challenge to other guilds for bragging rights.. how many of your members will have beads on the next shuttle? bet The Florida Glass Dragons will beat you!!!!! And.. to sweeten the pot.. If another guild has more members with beads to go on the shuttle, I will donate one of my tutorials for your library, or as a raffle prize etc for your guild.

Shipped UPS today, paid extra to get it there by thursday. Gives me some wiggle room if they are late. Sent 6 beads in 5 styles, plus another 5 beads that are space themed for the kids, they are my practice beads. And kept a couple for myself, to share with my fellow guild members.

I am so excited and hope at least one makes it. I have worked so hard.

Candice

So bummed we didn't see this earlier! The kiln is already full for the day, and if we make them tomorrow we'll probably miss the cut off!

the judging is on the 28th I think. While I am excited about what I made and want to share, to keep it fair to all, its best not to post a pic until after the judging.

Here are the dates again, so I guess we get to post our creations on or after March 1 ?

1. February 26, 2011 - Deadline for submissions. Beads must be IN HAND at the above address by end of business day (5:00 p.m. Arizona time zone) February 26, 2011. Not “postmarked by,” but IN HAND, to be considered. Any beads received after that date will be returned upon receipt of return postage from the recipient. If no return postage is received within 7 days of notification of missed deadline, all Beads become property of Beads of Courage and may be used for purposes as stated above, to directly benefit Beads of Courage.

2. February 27,2011 – Jury Process

3. February 28, 2011 - Beads to NASA

4. March 1, 2011 - Notification on Lampwork Etc. forum

Got two beads out the door priority mail (the third one never materialized). I figure it's a win/win even if it doesn't go on the shuttle it's a worthy cause. Jeri
