Our TILE Challenge Designers did more than SOAR...
They took flight with their awesome designs!

Now it's your turn and let your fingers count...but...
Tick-Tock...time is running out to
Vote for your Favorite Design!

VOTING POLL closes tomorrow
Friday 8/5/11 - midnight EST

What an awesome debut for our very first TILE Challenge!
  Congrats to all of our designers!
Please join the many others that have taken time to vote for their favorite design already by sharing our Blog LINK to vote!  You can view our prior blog post to review the designer descriptions and photos, as well as, our Designer Photo Album on Facebook.

As a Jewelry Designer and the creator of a variety of Focals including Lampwork Beads, Brass Bezels, and ART/PHOTO tiles - I can tell you that I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know our designers through correspondence and their designs.   However - the best part for me is seeing the camraderie between designers...the love, the support - all meant to inspire and help each other grow as an individual and Artisan.

You know jewelry dates back centuries...and has influenced many of today's techniques and styles.  Yet - when you look at all of our 30 entries...you'll see a wide range of colors, textures, and choice of beads and findings - each unique and special in their own way - all because our designers took common techniques, a deep breath...and let their creativity "go"!

So we hope you GO to VOTE in the upper right hand corner box
TILE Challenge Awards till be posted on Saturday evening 9pm EST
