The Jewelry Artisans Community but Goodies Challenge theme this week was "Mushrooms and Moss." Participants were challenged to submit jewelry designs that they made recently or years ago that captured the mushrooms and fungi that show up with the arrival of moist fall weather. The entries are gorgeous and I am thrilled to share them here:
From Cat of Cat's Wire:
The whimsy and creativity in this wire woven mushroom complete with woodland fairy swinging underneath is magic:
And, then Cat turned around and shared this elegant mossy ring with us. Wouldn't that be a great ring to wear to a dinner/cocktail party?
Next to share her beauties was Michelle of My Bijou Life with this beautifully wire wrapped and woven cabachon with a pattern reminiscent of mushroom colors. I think I see mushroom shapes in there too! This is such a unique piece - well done, Michelle!
Michelle mused that these sweet earring were too blue green to be make us think of moss, but to me they bring to mind a patch of mossy stones under a big blue sky.
Irith of Riorita Jewelry never disappoints and she thrilled us again with these lovely domed earrings that immediately brought to mind the shape of mushrooms. Not only that, but the gems stones she chose to use are the perfect representations of Mushrooms and Moss. Thank you so much, Irith!
Dawn of Jewelry Art by Dawn (me) chose to submit this hand painted mushroom pendant...
It's always interesting to see how different artists interpret a theme and this week was no exception; I hope you enjoyed seeing these lovely takes on "Mushrooms and Moss".
