Vote in the Fire Divas Summer Jewelry Challenge

Rare Friday post from me but I have so many beads to write about next week and would also love to see a good voter turnout for the Fire Divas Summer Jewelry Challenge! You know what they early (but you CAN'T vote vote per person. And is it ever hard to choose!) 
To vote:  The poll is on the right side of the Fire Divas Blog

We don't have as many entries this time, but WOW are they good ones! You can see the entries below and when you are done, you can vote on the right -> for your favorite. Voting ends in one week (July 23).

Entry 1

Information about the beads: by Amy Hall
Description of the piece: Silver wire, chain, lampworked beads
Inspiration for the piece: The square tiles by Amy inspired something different, and the demi-necklace was born!

Entry 2

Necklace designed with Lampwork beads by Sonja of SilverRiverGlassWork and Copper. On a bright sunny summer day the sun hovers over the water, sending rays up through the clouds with rippled reflections in the rushing water below.

Entry 3

I commissioned Maybeads - to create a set of turtle beads for me to make into a bracelet.
I think this turtle must be from Tahiti, just look at her lovely lavender shell topped with a pink flower that has a lavender heart at it's center! I call her Tita, which in Tahitian means "The Fruit of the Sun". Her gorgeous green eyes, which match her head, legs and tail, will look happily up at you throughout the day. Believe me, I know from experience, you can't help smiling when you look down and see that little turtle looking up at you! Two matching lampwork beads accompany her, each bead has a pink flower on one side and a pink heart on the other, with green dots between the two sides.

The other beads on the bracelet are Swarovski crystal and glass. The bracelet is 7" long, and Tita the Turtle is about 1/4 wide and 1/2 inch long

Entry 4

This necklace was inspired by the fabulous focal bead made by Tera of Beadygirl Beads. I made some beaded beads (peace signs, and cellini spirals) in some of the same colors, and strung it all with swarovski crystals and sterling silver findings.

I must vote for entry 1 as it is very unique with the twisted wire surrounding the glass bead. Beautiful. Happy beading...
