Swarovski Design Elements Winner is Announced

Fire Mountain Gems and Beads has just announced the grand prize winner of their CHRYSTALLIZED Swarovski Elements contest.

The winner for 2009 is Francesca Walton, and the design is called "Midsummer Night's Dream." Her design was entered in the wedding and holiday category. Francesca was born in Edinburgh, Scotland, but now resides in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

The necklace is a fabulous festoon bib design and uses an extensive array of Swarovski crystals. The designer states that this piece was designed for her mother, who has a strong love of nature.

The piece is also inspired by two musical works, "Midsummer Night's Dream" by Mendelssohn, and "Dragonfly Ballet" by Janacek.

Well done Francesca!

Other winning design ideas can be found on this page of the Fire Mountain Gems and Beads website. Congratulations to all the winners.
