People's Choice Award!
For her beautiful Flower Bracelet shown above
This was a challenge of camraderie, mutual respect, and of course jewelry design. Yes - organizing any type of challenge such as this one takes a lot of personal time - but for me it was reallly time well spent because it has been such a pleasure seeing how everyone created with the tiles they were sent - AND how they all came together with a common thread of creating jewelry.
The Challenge was a success due to our participants and their positive attitudes. There are so many of us that create with similar products, using the same techniques - but as you can see from our prior posts - each design had it's own special stamp of "Uniqueness". That can only happen when a designer is true to themselves and allows their creativity to flow with no expectations.
So a special thank you to our participants and all those that took the time to compliment, support, and encourage them! Now onto the Awards...
- People's Choice Award for Laurie Wozniak - Her choice of a Designer Set of 3 (Heart sets, Square Sets, Circle Sets, Rectangular Sets) and a 25% off coupon for a future tile order)
- Runner-Ups...Summer Love by Jacqui Lawson, and Poppy Passion by Helen Bowen - both ladies will receive their choice of any $8 item (Pendant style Circle, Heart, Donut or Rectangle) and a 20% off coupon for a future tile purchase.
SPECIAL Designer Only Vote...I asked all of our participants to vote for their favorite designs for COLOR, DETAILS/TECHNIQUE, and who they felt best fit the bill of Ms. Congeniality....here are the results:
- Favorite Design for COLOR goes to Karen Vincent for her blending of colors with ther Tropical bracelet designs!
- Favorite Design for DETAILS/TECHNIQUE goes to Amanda Austin and both of her bracelet designs!
- And Ms. Congeniality goes to the very supportive and full of sweet compliments...SHEREE COOKE

NOW...for my personal Awards...
It's really hard to pinpoint one design, one designer...they all were such fabulous creations! I personally had a lot of fun and have to say it was like opening a present with every jpg picture I opened in my email :) - Congrats to all my Designers and working the "Challenge" in STYLE!
