2010 Fire Mountain Gems and Beads' Contest: SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS

Design Idea BB25 Necklace
Grand Prize Gold Medal Winner: Irina Wilson
Grand Prize Gold Medal Winner: Irina Wilson

"I did not expect this! I don't know what to say ... I am just so happy!

I imagined the design, planned it, and when I started to design it, it changed a lot. The beads know what to do better than I do!"- Irina

Inspired by Irina's own paradise, this spectacular necklace combines a unique use of Swarovski rivolis and outstanding stitchery on the front and back. The Gold Medal Grand Prize winning design is incredibly vibrant and professional, and looks equally amazing on display and when worn as a statement jewelry necklace.


Grand Prize Silver Medal Winner: Susan Terese McKechnie

Incredible color combinations and a beautiful use of products give this gorgeous piece dimension and personality.
Grand Prize Bronze Medal Winner: Sharon Demaris

A Swarovski showcase, this true wedding design offers exquisite workmanship and elegant sparkle.


Grand Prize Employee's Choice Winner: Melissa Grakowsky

"Vernal Equinox" is a work of art inspired by springtime that features a unique use of Swarovski crystals and won over Fire Mountain Gems and Beads employees.
President's Award: Danielle Petoukhoff

An intriguing use of Accu-Flex® professional-quality beading wire in this beautiful necklace caught Stuart's eye. A combination of mysticism, sparkle and starfish bring the piece to life.


Honorable Mention: Gay Isber

A unique blend of crystal, wire-wrapping and a shark's tooth give this necklace great energy. The over-the-top design displays a great use of Swarovski with runway appeal.
Honorable Mention: Keiko Wada

Featuring colorful Swarovski crystal designed with ribbon and other materials, this gorgeous necklace displays superior craftsmanship and a rich, elegant feeling.
