Okay. I don't just love these contests, I need them. I need the seriously crazy talent, the individual voice, the unique method of moving the layers to create an unbelievable finished piece of art. I need what you've all so generously given in order to reinvigorate my own creative process. As the contest progressed, I felt myself filling up with a really incredibly passion for wire wrapping. It was, in a word, inspiring.
View the GALLERY OF ENTRIES here.
I received 50 amazing entries and am reminded, as always, of the ability to transform a standard set of instruction into a representation of the artist. Ahem, 50 different artists, mind you. And as each entry arrived in my email, I wished I'd been the one to create it. I fell into each design so easily and wrapped myself in the natural pull towards the art of wire wrapping. You guys gave that to me, whether or not with intent, and I'm eternal grateful.
And now I bet your wondering who the winners are, right?
Well, the Group Favorite was voted on by each participant in the contest, who cast a single vote on another entry. And the winner of the Group Favorite is Olga Jones, who will win $25 payable via PayPal, my version of the "Finish It!" design, and three tutorials of her choice.
The Judged Favorite is chosen by a panel of 7 judges who are not participating in the contest.... myself included. These judges are wire wrappers and consumers, and were quite vocal in their choice. The Judged Favorite winner is Kay Newman, who will win $25 payable via PayPal and any three tutorials of her choice.
Winners, please contact me at email@example.com with either your physical address (for the Group Favorite) and PayPal email address.
I hope everyone will visit the gallery of entries and congratulate the winners and entrants for creating some truly masterful pieces of jewelry.
I should be having another design challenge (not a "Finish It!") in October, so keep an eye out for updates. I hope to see all of you artists enter in future contests. And thank you so much for filling my days with beauty!

Many. many congratulations to the worthy winners Olga and Kay. I thoroughly enjoyed creating a piece for this piece and spent happy times viewing all the wonderful entries and marvelling at how different they all were considering we all started from the same place! Thank you Nicole for another fantastic challenge and for your continued support and encouragement :)
