Kalaya submitted several stunning pieces for May:
I love the amount of carefully considered decisions and labor that went into both of these pieces! The detail of the tree on the reverse of her pendant allowing the wood to show through on both sides is a wonderful effect! Kalaya, please contact Barbara secondsurf[at]gmail[dot]com with your info!
And for those of you who may be new here, this is a re-cap of what Strut Your Stuff is all about, and how you can win: STRUT YOUR STUFF - Love My Art Jewelry A place for jewelry and bead artists to show off their jewelry creations using all handmade components. Monthly Challenge Rules 1. Take pictures of your current creation and upload it to our flickr pool. (up to 3 per submission). Look for your work to be added to the group when it meets the rules of the challenge. 2. Leave a description of your thought process while creating your jewelry or beads/components. We really want everyone to share their creative thinking so please make sure that you share. 3. Since we are a group promoting "creating handmade with handmade," your jewelry should consist of at least 75% handmade. This doesn't mean that you have to create everything that goes into your piece. You could use beads/components created by other artists. Please give credit to that artist in your description. 4. If your submission will be loose beads/components, it may include any medium that you prefer to make those in. These submissions would also require a description of your creative thought process. 5. You may submit as many pieces as you like in a month, but please note that your name will be put in the hat once for the end of monthly giveaway. And in fairness, you can be chosen only once for designer of the week. 6. This challenge begins the first Monday of each month. Winners from the previous month will be announced the first Monday of the following month. For example May's challenge starts 5/7/12 and the winner announced the first Monday in June. Have fun, show off!! We have some WONDERFUL prizes for JUNE generously donated by:
