We’ve held contests in the past that focus on very specific things, like Snowflakes and Druzies BUT this contest was to show off your CREATIVITY using craft wire!

And the winners are…

    Absolutely WONDERFUL work, one & all. CONGRATULATIONS!
    I too love the wire wrapped pendant — a skill I hope to do justice to before my hands & eyes let me down. (Groan)
