Gift from my Grandmother
Artist: Svetlana May (Phoenix, AZ)
First Place, Glass
The beautiful focal piece of this necklace was a gift Svetlana received from her grandmother. Svetlana explains that after accidentally breaking the chain that this pendant originally hung from, "I made this necklace to [go with] my evening dress, so my grandmother would not be offended." Our contest judges were impressed not only with Svetlana"s skillful stitchwork, but also with how perfectly she matched the colors of the pendant with our seed beads and Swarovksi® bicones.
