I can finally show off my Winter Ice necklace. I love the way it turned out :), even if I didn't win :(, it's modern & has a certain feel of the Orient to it. In retrospect, I probably should have used a cropped shot or maybe just re-shot it completely (product shots are still not my strong suit, when it comes to photography). I wanted to show the whole piece & not just a portion of it & I wanted to get the shot in, so I could participate. If I enter again, I may just list the piece, I notice others had theirs listed, so maybe the rules have changed (sorry I made everyone wait so long to find out who was who)
The winner of the YCSI guild contest was Hill Country, with their lovely peyote beaded bracelet. Congratulations to them! This is one of my favorites. I think I need to try this kind of beading again, myself. I remember how much fun it was!
Here is the link to the YCSI blog, so you can see the other entries & what studios they are from. Everyone did a lovely job. Each entry has a link to it's studio, so you can have a look around at their other pretty stuff.
Thanks to everyone who participated!
