The brief was fairly simple - Make a pair of earrings and if they happen to have some Smitten beads in there then extra brownie points will be awarded. The earrings were judged on
I was absolutely gobsmacked at how good all the entries were and the task of judging was truly testing! We had 28 superb entries but the wining earrings had just that little something extra that made them stand out. We have 80 members in the group now and I have to say it's so friendly, helpful and creative I could never have imagined it would take off so well. I am so happy to be a part of it, the next competition will be rings!
Here is the winning design by by Manda Jane Rodwell of Silver Storm Jewellery - created in copper and featuring one of my favourite Smitten beads the ruby vega pinwheel flower.... Manda sold these before the competition was even over but luckily she has promised to make me another pair :0) I'm sending Manda a little parcel of Smitten loveliness as her prize.
Here are all of the other stunning entries....
