I looked at all of the wonderful red items. We have some very talented jewelry artisans. It was very hard to pick just one.

My vote goes to Libra Gear Chainmaille with her Coral and Turquoise Mobius Necklace (id#109143). I was drawn to this piece as it is one that I would wear personally. Her workmanship in wire wrapping is excellent and the repurposing of the coral focal piece gets two green thumbs up. The adjustability for length makes it very versatile. A very cool design!

I really wanted my favorite to be either Joy's or Laura's: they were two of my first friends on AF. But it wasn't. It is JewelrybyJanzia (Jeanette)'s Ruby Red bracelet. I came close to hotlisting it the first time I saw it, but I can't spend money right now. I like its bold simplicity.

When does the contest end?

HaffinaCreations said...

My vote goes to Laura (LadedaCreations). Her Mysterious Red Planet Adjustable Ring is so bold and unique. It is a real statement piece. The finishing on the piece is quite exceptional too.

SiSi said...

Awesome, I am very excited about this!:)

My vote goes to: Caly's Jewelry Creations with 'My Little Red Heart' It caught my attention because it's very simple looking and gorgeous! It looks like something I can wear with jeans or a Sunday dress, great job Caly!

I blogged about this too, you can find it at: http://origamibysisi.blogspot.com/2009/06/giveaway-from-ajdjss.html

Definitely a great way to be "seeing red!"

Justina said...

What a great way to showcase everyone's talents. I love Joy's Cantianalife Lampwork Silver Foil Red Galss bracelet. Red is a great colour and it is a piece that would be easy to work in with any outfit.

DG said...

JewelrybyJanzia Ruby Red bracelet is my favorite. I not only love the color but the way the crystal cubes are assembled is gorgeous! I also really like the name.Ruby Red sounds so delicious! :)


noble beeyotch said...

wow!...this was a difficult choice. But my favorite has to be Jewelry by Janzia's http://www.artfire.com/modules.php?name=Shop&op=listing&product_id=83592. I love how the red has a classy copperish tinge to it and it looks far more expensive than its $16s.


eclecticgayle said...

have 3 faves,but if have to choose one then it is Kate's studio, Libra Gear...coral and turquoise chainmaille necklace...

why?....the necklace is bold,unique,has a nicely balanced design and the colors are complementary colors...a piece I would wear...

Laura studio, adjustable red planet ring, vibrant and bold red also adjustable to ones finger, Abby, peters.ab0124@gmail.com

Deb said...

Wow. This was a really hard choice!! I really really love the Red Hot Summer Bracelet from Carol Jean's Creations, and also the Indian Red Swarovski Chandelier Earrings from Gem Kitty, and My Little Red Heart from Caly's Jewelry Creations, oh and the Ruby Red Bracelet from Jewelry by Janzia. They are ALL lovely but these really stood out, at least for me.

But the one I picked as the "best of the best" was The Swirl Necklace from Gems by Jerri. I just love how colorful and cheery it is. It looks good enough to eat!! What I like about it is that it would be oh so perfect for summer evenings AND you could also wear it at Christmas because of the peppermint candy look. Love it!

Kaylarae said...

Love the Carol Jean Red Hot summer bracelet.. a very luminous red color, set off by that pearly silver color is absolutely stunning. What a
great holiday and all around the year piece :)
