I'm honored to have had my jewelry designs featured in Westcott's booth at the summer 2011 CHA trade show. Although I was unable to attend this year's show, I obtained a photo of how my jewelry looked on display.
Since my jewelry ensemble consisted of interchangeable pieces consisting of Duck Tape's "flames" and "camouflage" motifs, I'm thrilled to see how they arranged my necklace on top of the camouflage print. Nice job!
The CHA designer challenge was a lot of fun. I might add that there was a lot of pressure with this year's challenge due to a delivery problem with one of the products, which resulted in a week-long delay in my receiving the product. Working under pressure is never a problem. You just do what needs to be done.
I'd like to thank the generous sponsors of this year's designer challenge: Westcott, Velcro Brand Fasteners and Duck Brand Duck Tape.
A big note of thanks to Marisa Pawelko aka Modern Surrealist for organizing this challenge. She was so gracious to reach out to the CHA designer members to participate in this event, and she was very helpful throughout the designer challenge.
As a reminder, our projects will be auctioned to raise funds for CharityWings.org. Please be sure to check out this wonderful organization and all that they do.
I'd also like to mention that I used Swarovski crystals and Beadalon's German-style wire in my designs. As always, Swarovski always provides that extra sparkle, and I love using Beadalon's wire as an alternative to sterling silver.
