Winning Treasury Challenge #115

Some words from AKDlampwork...

Wow, what an incredible week! I'd say this was my best week on Etsy ever and it was all because of this team and the wonderful treasuries. Thanks so much to everyone that took time out of their busy holiday week to create fabulous pieces of art using my bead as inspiration. Each one was like a special gift to open up. I also want to thank those that complimented my work, I appreciate the nice comments more than you could imagine. And a special thank you to BB for choosing my treasury as the winner last week. Gosh I love this team! :)

I'm really drawn to bold, dramatic treasuries and there were quite a few. First I narrowed it down to 32 favorites, then 16. I was particularly enthralled with one. It was far different than any others, completely original in it's colors, theme and feel. It's crisp and clean, yet bold and dramatic all at the same time. The addition of two kitties also pushed it over the edge for me! Those eyes! So the winner is Sarah with her fabulous Ray of Light.
