It's a voting post! Here's how this works. At the beginning of this month, I made 10 smallish focals and posted them first come, first served. Anyone who bought one of these focals was eligible to send in a photo to be entered in the Designer's Challenge Contest. All of you fine folks who have been directed here should vote on your favorite, because the one who gets the most votes wins a $50 credit in my Etsy or Artfire shop!

Send lots of your friends, let's get votes for everyone!  Now, onto the entries :) Voting is to the right in the sidebar!

2) Erin Laney - EverythingELB on Etsy

3) Jacqui Day - WitchEver Oak

4) Michelle Plumb

5) Jude Williamson - Jude's JuJus on Etsy

6) Sue Dobiesz

7) Arlene Dean - A Glass Bash

And there we have it! Seven entries, all beautiful, waiting for you to decide who wins :D  The poll is on the right, please vote for your favorite!

(also, if anyone has any idea how to get rid of all these extra divider lines... yeah. Let me know?? :D)
Well, I can't really say that I'll be using this blog a LOT... I'm pretty ingrained to posting everything on Facebook when I have something jewelry related to say, or on my personal Facebook page when I've got something... well, personal! :) It will be a challenge for me to come up with things to talk about here, but I'll try to keep it interesting since there are a billion blogs and you just don't have time to read them all. Let's make it worth it!

SO! Why did I create this one? Because I've decided this month (and possibly every month) to do a Designer's Challenge. I made 10 small focal sized Jaipur Jewels (don't know what those are? Well, my Etsy shop usually gets 3-4 of these in a week, more when I'm really getting good torch time. They're huge, I tell ya, HUGE!) and let my Facebook fans pick their favorite for $15. They have until April 27 to send me a photo of their creation, and all of those designs will be shown here to be voted on. Voting will continue until April 30, and the winner will get...

*ba ba ba BUUUUUUM* (think the rocks in Labyrinth shouting 'Certain death!' and 'Beware!' when you read that, please thank you)

A $50 credit in my Etsy shop to use as they please.

So keep checking back. I might have stuff to show other than the Design Challenge monthly votes. You never know.
