Found an interesting contest last night.
Preston Ruether’s Wireworking web site is sponsoring a Christmas Ornament contest. Your entry must be primarily made from wire, but can use other materials as well. Deadline is December 16 to enter if you are interested!
I do have an entry planned out. Believe it or not, it’s going to be created from a mistake. 🙂 Last night I was goofing around with some sterling wire and Swarovski crystals, making a centerpiece for a necklace. It turned out….well, let’s say interesting.
Once I got the chain on the centerpiece and tried it on (always to that to look at how something lays and how it looks on!), I was less than impressed with it. Rather than tear it apart and waste all that wire, I decided to just set it down and think about it.
Went to check emails, and lo and behold, there was the contest entry announcement. I thought some more, and decided that with just a little rework, my necklace centerpiece could make an awesome tree ornament.
So there you have it. One woman’s trash becomes the same woman’s masterpiece.
