Well, not THIS year, goshdarnit! I finally got ahead of the curve and put a reminder on my Outlook WAAYYYY back in January to remind me to check the Fair website for the entry deadline this spring. Now, my only problem is deciding what to enter.
Which is where you come in (if there are any actual humans reading this blog which I sometimes doubt…or aliens…aliens are okay…I’m an equal opportunity blogger). Anywho, I thought I’d post a few pictures and start a poll (see up there on the right hand side of the blog) for people to vote for which design they think I ought to enter. The ones pictured below are my personal top contenders, but I’m open to write-in votes for anything pictured on the website (with the exception of the items in the Gallery Pages as those things have been sold and are looooong gone).
So, without further ado, here are the contestants:
Nights in Black Onyx:
Antique Smoke (and yes, I'm aware that A. the scan totally sucks on this and B. so does the name so if you want to leave suggestions in the comment section, I'm open)
and last, but not least, Frosted Fantasy:
Pendant: Dichroic glass cabochon surrounded by bead embroidered edging
Necklace: Vintage frosted glass rounds, Bali silver spacers, faceted Czech crystal rondelles and seed beads
Clasp: Sterling silver box clasp set with peridot
Let the voting begin!
P.S. Here's a couple of other little goodies I finished this week - not up for the vote, but thought I'd post them just for fun:
Waimea Bay earrings - Swarovski crystals, sterling silver rounds and freshwater pearls wire-wrapped to sterling silver chain and hanging from sterling silver leverback earring tops.
Spring Garden earrings - Handcrafted porcelain disk beads on 14k gold fill headpins with Swarovski and Czech crystals hanging from 14 gold fill leverback tops.
