Rachele Dagley Wins the EBW March Challenge!

>> Tuesday, March 17, 2009

Congratulations Rachele! Rachele won with her "The Seductress" beadwoven art necklace. Isn't it an amazing piece! To me it is a powerful image of an oriental dragon spitting fire and swishing its beard while its eyes seduce me and tempt me towards its dragon den.

Anyone want to take a guess how many beads Rachele wove into this creation? So far, I've counted 14 cabochons, a lampwork bead, a glass button, over 100 bugle beads, a bunch of freshwater pearls and a gazillion seed beads.

Okay, I didn't count every bead, but you get my drift on how many hours Rachele poured into this piece weaving one bead at a time. Phew! Did you sleep last month Rachele? LOL!

Congratulations to Olga of MadeByOlga who won second place in the challenge with her "Temptation" necklace. I've watched lizards stalk their prey, and Olga has captured it perfectly. I love how she wrote in her blog about the lizard hypnotizing the dragonfly.

Congratulations also goes to Smadar of SmadarsTreasure for her third place win with "Temptation Dance". Smadar describes this as a couple doing a sultry latino dance ... the man in black and the woman in hot red. Smadar creates the most elegant jewelry, and this gorgeous necklace is no exception!

Congratulations again Rachele, Olga and Smadar and congratulations to the entire EBW Team! Here are links to their shops and to the EBW Team blog.
