Putting it out there

As part of my "apply to more call for arts & challenges" goal, I came across Stringing Magazine's jewelry challenge "Channeling Cinderella". A bit last minute, I whipped this up for it and sent it in.

I wonder if it is a bit too "unusual" for them, but never hurts to try. I call it "After the Ball". Made with a gorgeous antique rhinestone clip, vintage crystal, rhinestone and pearl beads, and a couple of regal looking Lion charms to symbolize Prince Charming. The back dangle chain holds a vintage clock key. If Cinderella had had one herself, she could have kept turning the clock back and so the chimes of midnight would never have come.

I can't wait to see what the other entries are. I will post the link to the gallery as soon as it goes up so you can vote for me, or which ever one you like best!

Thanks Jessica!

Thanks catherder! We have alot of the same great tastes in stuff so I know you ROCK!!! LOL.

I hope these look like 'my style' and not too much like anyone elses-which isn't easy when people use the same sort of materials. I don't know Deryn Mentock's stuff, but she must be good if you like it cause you ahve great taste.

oh girl you will make your breakthrough!! Did that big "shall remain nameless" Wiccan Store in Salem take your jewelry??? I can't remember if I read they had or not!
