I've shown you my Marsh marigold necklace (only centrepiece shown above), which I entered for the Vintaj blog design challenge. It didn't win the vote, but today when I checked my e-mails, I got the message that my necklace had been chosen as Editor's Pick. The motivation, as stated in the blog post, was:
We were inspired by your golden wire wrapped flowers around our Branch and the clever use of the Violet Sprig Fastenable as the closure! Your color palette, improvisation, and written inspiration for you design sealed the deal.
I was such a lovely surprise! I've been feeling a bit under the weather lately so this really cheered me up. While I did run into design problems, especially when wiring the branches together, I fully enjoyed making this necklace. So it was fun to see that others liked the result as well.
And for those of you who also wants a chance to win or get to become Editor's pick, check out the newest Vintaj design challenge Daffodil Walkway (due May 7th). You can read more about rules etc here.
