September Challenge

Amazing entries for the challenge this September! Thirty Three Etsy BeadWeavers Members who are very talented have created these amazing and beautiful pieces for our theme "Indian Summer Dream"! Please take the time to visit each entry and read their story about how their piece relates to the theme. Using tiny little beads with a needle and thread and incredible patience, Etsy BeadWeavers Team members designed and then beaded these selections for you to vote and choose your favourite. You can click on the item in the text list below the mosaic which links to the Etsy Shop listing of each entrant where you will see more detail of each piece!

Voting is only from the 9th thru the 15th so put on your thinking cap after checking out the entries and vote to tell us which is your favorite.
