Hello everyone,

 

Welcome to the latest forum challenge for the December issue (issue 56) of Make & Sell Jewellery, on sale from Friday 24th October. This issue is based around Christmas with plenty of fabulous gift ideas and jewels to wear at parties, plus exclusive copyright free designs, advice from business experts on selling your jewellery and much more!

 

All you have to do to enter is:

 

* Produce a jewellery make based around the main theme of Christmas, or one of the other themes or projects within the magazine. This means that you can either enter your own unique creation, or a piece based on one of the projects featured in this month's issue.

 

* Feel free to use any beads in your stash and try out different techniques too!

 

* We ask that you post a well-lit, good-quality picture in this thread, with a little explanation about how you created your entry and any details about the beads and techniques used.

 

* One entry per person please (overseas entrants welcome). Challenge closes at 5.30pm on 2nd December 2013. The winner will be announced shortly after and a fresh challenge will be opened for the new issue. And the winner will receive a lovely beady goodie bag and appear on the Your Space page within the magazine!

 

Any questions, please feel free to email me at [email protected] We look forward to seeing your entries!

Red and Gold means Christmas to me,

so here is my baroque make -

a heavy red glass bead necklace,

with the necessary earrings!

 

Eat your heart out, Kings!

 

Looking forward to everyone else's makes here!

Red and gold is perfect for Christmas MT.

Love your festive set.

Good luck in the challenge.

 

I have to find something Christmassy for a Christmas concert I am singing in.

A mix of gold and silver was my first thought,

and I came across these lovely chain maille rings

which are faceted throughtout their circles.

The finishing gem was part of an MJ prize,

and the slight straw colour tone in it 

sets off the siver / gold mix in the chainmaille for me.
