OK! The semi-Finalists are up on the site and I'm excited. They are simply lovely. This is really a lot of fun for me, I enjoy it.
The necklace contest starts on Friday, that being the submission date for pictures of necklaces featuring lampwork. The style is up to you. They do need a title and I find it interesting that people aren't sending in their full names. Please give me your whole name.
I'll accept submissions through Sunday evening, and plan to have the voting starting by 9. (Life might get in the way, but that's my plan.)
Remember tell your family and friends to enter, and then tell them to vote. And then you enter and vote too.
I've found that many designers ignore lampwork, and I think it's because they just haven't seen it at its best. After all, a bead is beautiful, but a piece of lampwork jewelry is a beautiful bead that beautifully dressed.
Come on, let's show them!
