EBW Team June 2015 Challenge "Game Of Thrones"



Edita Kricenaite, the winner of the April Challenge has chosen the theme for June:


"Game Of Thrones"

It seems the whole world is crazy about this TV serial. I think it is an inexhaustible source for imagination: from the fantasy world to dragons, zombies and other strange creatures, from the ancient environment with its castles to unique nature views, from royal costumes and dresses to the endless scenes of war. What (or who) inspires you the most about this film? Please show us in your jewelry and tell about it in your description.

Please don't post any photos from the series alongside your piece as it will constitute copyright infringement. Direct copying of any element is also not allowed.

Let the game of thrones begin in your home!!!

EBW Team May 2015 Challenge "Inspired by Chihuli"


Karen Parker, winner of the March challenge, has chosen the theme for May 2015:


“Inspired by Chihuly”

The theme for May’s Challenge is “Inspired by Chihuly”. Dale Chihuly is an American glass artist and is best known for his large scale blown glass creations. As bead artists, we work with glass beads on a much different scale but Chihuly’s luminous glass creations and their unworldly shapes and colors can still inspire us. You can see his work at http://www.chihuly.com.
 
Reference in detail your source of inspiration in your description, including links to Chihuly's works, but please don't post any photos of Chihuly’s work alongside your piece, as it will constitute copyright infringement. Direct copying of any portion of his imagery is also not allowed.



Note to team members: Please check the challenge rules to see what details must be in your listing.  The entry must be listed in your Etsy shop by May 5th.  Have fun creating!
