You know, I gotta say.... I hope there is never a day when you all aren't amazing me with your talent and creativity. I really love these design challenges, and enjoy so thoroughly how a few simple steps can evolve into so many completely unique designs. This speaks volumes to your skills and innovation, and it's a pleasure to be a part of that in some small way. I'm already looking forward to future challenges and hope to see each and every one of these contestants amaze me yet again.
If you haven't checked out the entries in this contest, you may do so buy visiting the August 2016 FINISH IT! Design Challenge Pinterest Board. I encourage anyone reading this to visit, applaud and enjoy the remarkable pieces submitted. They each deserve heaps of praise. Pin and re-pin these lovely works, I say! They deserve to be shared.
As with all FINISH IT! contests, two winners were chosen. One was chosen by his or her peers and one was chosen by a panel of 7 non-participating judges, including myself. The choice was a painful one to make, because there were just too many gorgeous entries. Like... you know... all of them. But alas, a decision was reached and here are your winners!
These amazing entries definitely caught the eye of many and rightfully so! Beautiful work. Deborah wins my own finished pendant, designed for this contest, as well as any 10 Nicole Hanna Jewelry tutorials of her choice, and Ann-Sophie also wins any 10 Nicole Hanna Jewelry tutorials of her choice. Congrats, ladies!
Now, while you all take in the beauty of these entries, if you've yet to see them (or again and again if you're like me and can't help revisiting them), I am off to think up a design for the next challenge! Stay tuned and happy weaving!
