First, let me just thank everyone for playing. It’s such a great blessing to be able to see and share all the wonderful jewelry art out there! Everyone really rose to the occasion and knocked my socks off with their creativity!
Some interesting stats on the challenge:
The most-used inspiration was the Spicebush Swallowtail butterfly picture. That’s kind of cool to me because I took that picture my very-own-self in SPITE OF my horrendous photography handicap. Although the beetles had an early lead, they ended up tied for second place with the caterpillar. The Luna Moth came in third, which surprised me, because I just love that color combination of white, lavender and bright green.
Only ONE PERSON was brave enough to take on the Gaudy Grasshopper…and that was Lorelei. I think she pulled it off amazingly well, too.
Okay, enough about all that, you all just want to know who won, right?
Well, the winner is…EmandaJ from Artemisia! Congratulations, Emanda!! You have won a package of several beading books including “Enchanted Adornments”, “Beader’s Stash”, and several others as well as some beads. Please e-mail me with your address so I can get your package out to you.
Thank you again to everyone for playing!
