Hyper-ventilating now - I made the next round

and here's the e-mail I received advising I made Top 25

Congratulations Bernadine !!!

Your piece "Copper for Cleopatra" has been selected as one of the top 25 entries for the Swarovksi Creative Beading Awards 2007, presented by Crystal Park. The standard this year has shown us all how the beading community has progressed so much in the last 12 months. You should feel very proud of your achievement in reaching such a high standard.

Your piece will now be on display throughout 2008 at all major city Bead Fairs (associated with the Quilt and Craft Fairs). In the next day or so Deborah Gibbons from Creative Beading will contact you via email to ask you some questions. This will form part of our story to be published in issue 3-2, which will go on sale mid November 2007. We will send you a copy of the magazine and your certificate prior to the magazine going on sale. However, it is imperative that we receive your reply by 8th September to meet our deadlines.

Once again, I thank you for participation and congratulate you on your efforts in helping make this, Australasia's premier beading design award.

Yours in Beading
Publisher - Creative Beading
