The Ajdjss Guild Earring Challenge

Our first guild challenge was a success not to mention alot of fun. We had 10 different antique brass and turquoise "funky" earrings entered in this challenge and each one was a unique, original, creative, and funky design. Voters did not have an easy time in picking just one favorite. But, after some agony to decide voters came through and were able to pick their favorite funky pair of earrings.

The tally was made for the voting and we came up with the most voted for earrings, the very close 2nd most voted for earrings, and a tie for the 3rd most voted earrings.

The most voted pair of earrings was created by Jeweljunke "the awesome masks", the close 2nd most voted pair of earrings were created by JSmaz "the awesome filigree wrapped turquoise drops", and the tie for the 3rd most voted pair of earrings were created by Gemkitty " the awesome daisy chandeliers" and by Beadlady5 "the awesome etched dangling hoops with a rose and dragonfly charms".

Kudos to all the jewelry designers for creating such fabulous funky earrings for this challenge.
And a special congratulations to Jeweljunke, Jsmaz, Gemkitty, and Beadlady5.

Each of the studios with the most voted earrings will receive a special gift certificate for jewelry supplies graciously donated by our own guild supply shops: SupplyCloset, StarlightSilver, RougeRiverBeads, and RougeRiverBeads.

In short: You guys Rock like crazy!!!

I'm glad it was so great! I thought about it but didn't have any antique brass and very little turquoise.
