Marilyn, what a great list! I hope you have tons of entries. And I picked up your first issue and was so impressed. Looking forward to the next one.

lol Talking guy is an experiment... he is not staying! Although, as Barb Svetlick found out, if you move your mouse around his head, he follows you to keep an eye on what you are doing. She seems to have had fun playing with him! lol

There are more sponsors coming on board. The prizes for this one are going to be fantastic - even moreso than what is listed there now!

Ha, ha he is fun. I just tried him. I really enjoyed trying to making his head move to my music. Anyhow, Marilyn, consensus around here is if you're going to have a talking guy, can you find a hunk by any chance? We've got one vote for Johnny Depp, one for Antonio Banderas and one for George Clooney. Oh, and another vote for that guy who was the boyfriend in Devil Wears Prada- is it Adrian something?

I'm just joking...

Sorry Jo - just took the guy off. I'll put him back up for a few more days so you can see him.

Marcy - I'd love to put someone else up there. Just not many choices right now.

Good luck everyone. I would imagine a lampworker with a lot of experience will be winning. You ought to think about doing categories next year so newbies can join in the fun!

Newbies are certainly welcome to participate. There are many people who consider themselves as newbies who have some of the most fantastic beads I've seen! Take Teresa Laliberte for instance - her beads have become very well known and she has not been making beads all that long! When we first went live with the site, she was our first featured artist and had only been making beads for about a year at that time - a "newbie"... It's going to be judged on the bead, not the artist. In fact, unless your beads are so unique that they shout out your name, no one will know who made the beads when they are being judged. So, if you can make a nice pucker in your bead and can make a pleasing design... I would certainly enter it!!! You never know! If you don't enter ... you most certainly will never know.

No matter what you enter, your beads and your name will be shown in either the magazine or on the website (after the judging is completed)... It's great advertising just to enter! If you're a newbie and you make nice beads, here's an opportunity to get your name out there and yes, a chance to win some fantastic prizes!

Thanks for your input!
Marilyn

The classified ads are actually 1/16" ad space - 4" W X 1.312" They are text only - black and white. There will be one grand prize winner who will receive the classified ad space and some glass as well. The only catch is, the entries will become part of the prizes - they won't be returned to you. Each bead will be showcased on the website sponsor page with the artist's name (some more free advertising).

Let me know what you all think please... Suggestions, comments, etc.

Thanks!
Marilyn
I am game for this, if you decide to go ahead with it I'll send a focal for it you can use as a prize.

I guess I'm confused. I thought that was one of the options already. I don't mind that either. It's a good idea.

Sorry Marcy...

You know what - it is a bit confusing - since it was a question and not an actual event - let's just scratch that idea of a mini contest (I deleted my original post asking your thoughts on the idea). There's already too much going on with the main contest - which by the way, have you seen the prize list???? WOW - and more coming!!


Let's just do this instead - the first 16 people to contact me through the Annealer website to offer up a bead or bead set will get a free classified ad space. THIS IS A TRADE - NOT A CONTEST! The bead will not be entered into the contest! So, it doesn't have to be your "best" bead.... but it should be of high quality.

How's that sound? That should clear things up!

Thanks!
Marilyn

I have to remember about this contest! I've been working on a lot of new stuff and I want to enter. I'll probably send the bead instead of paying the entry fee - but the entry fee option is nice if you are a procrastinator like I am!

What a great list of prizes

Sorry guys for not getting back here sooner...
Yes, it is too late for the bead trade - we didn't get as many as we wanted, but I had to put a deadline on it so I can move forward with other things.

On another note - there are more prizes being added to the list... Auralens is adding a pair of boro glasses to their prizes. And, it looks like someone is going to offer up an electroforming kit too!!! Yeah! There's supposed to be a torch being offered up also, but I don't have the details or confirmation on either the torch or the electroforming kit yet. Still waiting! Of course having these extra things will make the pot sweeter... but if they don't come through, there are still some really great prizes already - Well worth entering for!

Major Sponsors - I'm sorry you won't be able to enter. We're going to miss out on some serious works of art!

(Bead-trade individuals CAN enter the contest).

DEADLINE IS COMING!!! Now's the time to get your entries in - the deadline is towards the end of this month. This is one contest you don't want to miss out on!

Thanks!
Marilyn

I also received confirmation that Gudonya is providing 2 baskets of their moisturizing goodies too! I don't know about you, but my hands get so torch dried making beads!!! Their products are awesome!!!


A quick note to those of you who are entering... please do not post your bead pictures anywhere!!!! Not even on your websites. The judges can not know whose beads they are judging until after they are finished!

Thank you!!!! and good luck to all who enter!
