Creative Bead Chat 2000 Thank You Blog Hop


  This summer the Facebook group Creative Bead Chat (CBC) reached 2000 members and the wonderful ladies that keep this group thriving, organized a big giveaway. More that 50 prizes (from components to finished jewelry, magazines and gift certificates) were donated by some CBC members and given away to other members. 
 
  I have to admit I run for several prizes, mostly components. There was also a beautiful purple beadweaved bracelet that seemed just perfect for my younger sister. She is currently undergoing a chemio and I said that if I win that bracelet, I'll gift it to her to cheer her up a little. I do like and wear purple as well, but that bracelet was calling my sister's name from the moment I saw it.


  And guess what – I won just that bracelet!!! As soon I received the bracelet I've gifted it to her without taking any pictures, so I'm using the picture from the giveaway … She was really happy and she loves it! 





The bracelet was created by Ginger Hammond. Here are some more of her beautiful pieces – the pictures are borrowed from Ginger's FB profile just to thank her and show you her lovely work.
