Jewelry Club Contest - Nature Inspired

As all 4 judges had agreed, this was NOT an easy task for all of us!  

The objective of this contest is to find inspiration from all around us, and to realize how easy it is to find inspiration by everyday life, when creating exquisite adornments to wear or display.

This years theme is Nature Inspired, brought to you by :iconjewelryclub:, in proud collaboration with :iconnatures-beauty-club:.

Here's the official Contest News Article… for your reference.




Judging criteria

~5 points~ :bulletgreen:  Why you chose the media used to create your piece, and how is it related to the photo.

Hi all!!  :D    

Our Nature-Inspired Contest is officially closed!  Thanks for all that entered, I certainly hope you've had fun with your pieces!  We have some gorgeous entries with a lot of resemblance to the nature photo, this is for sure going to be hard to judge.

Another thing that I would like to bring your attention to is, I am in search for 2 new assistants to our club, your main responsibility will be updating club submissions, and if you're familiar with CSS or journal coding will definitely be a plus.  If you're interested in helping out or know what your responsibility might be, please contact me through my personal account CrysallisCreations

See you around!!  :heart:

EDIT: Originality and Feature!!

Journal Entry: Mon Jan 19, 2009, 6:59 PM


**EDIT - This is now an official Artisan Craft News!  Please help us make it more visible by :heart: the article?… you!!**

Happens all the time...... not only in jewelry, but in all the different art form and artistic expression, but since jewelry (jewellery) made with gems, glass and wire is what I am familiar with, thus this is the subject that I would like to discuss with you....

I volunteered  to be a club Admin because I love all the sparklies, and obviously I enjoy playing with beads and wire. Even though to some traditional jewelry artists it is still not consider "real" jewelry. But! To me, I think the possibilities is simply endless! One will need to be creative to create One-Of-A-Kind, truly Original when all that we're using are mass produced "beads" and readily available "wire", whether you use the real or man-made, it is making a HUGE scene on the market of adornment!!

What makes a piece Original??

There are only so many ways to string or restring a strand of beads, there are wired and coiled and wrapped, add a charm there, or finish with a gorgeous clasp... All of these are almost always ready-made, mass produced, so what's the chance of someone else using the same beads or finish as you are??? By changing the earwire, or one bead to another??? Does that make it original??

To me, it is entirely possible!

Since the major trend of artisan made jewelry lately are wire and beads, I am going to feature some submissions to the club, as well as some from our favorites. The one person that single handedly changed MY view with possibilities to what can be done with wire and beads is for sure Eni Oken ( ) She's always been generous enough and for sure confident enough to share her tutorials on the web for such a minimum fee, so check her site out if this is something that you would like to learn or get into. I know for sure she's inspired a lot of people into making a lot of variation, and this recent surge is definitely a great thing! Given us a change to think about even more possibilities with wire and beads!

So what's ORIGINAL to you???

My definitely of a piece being "Origial", is when the artist use these readily available materials, transform them into wearable art. Each piece catches the essence of the artist in it, or even a story to tell.....


In this journal, we're featuring submissions to our gallery, as well as some from our favorites!!
