I entered a contest for jewelry designers last week. My effort is to get my work noticed by the panel of celebrity judges to fulfill my dream of “Snappy Tatter on the Red Carpet”. I entered my Couture necklace “Full Bloom” trying to knock the socks of off, well, everybody. I also entered a small wreath pendant from 2011 thinking that since the theme is “holiday necklaces”, the Wreath may get more votes. The unfortunate part is that the voting is based on appearance alone. No one knows my work is tatting or that it is the result of tying knots for many many hours. They just see the finished piece. Turns out both of these very different designs are getting attention. Yay!
I need the help of all my supporters and followers, fans, family and peeps! The more 5 star votes I get from the general public the more likely my work will make the final judging round in front of the professional panel of designers. I could win money but more importantly, I could win recognition.
Voting is free. You do not need to sign up for anything or enter any information. Just visit http://www.andthedesignwinneris.com and click the stars on Full Bloom and the Wreath on pages 2 and 3 of the gallery. You can only vote once for each entry. Every vote is so important. There are some beautiful designs in the galleries that I am competing with. All of you know that I put my heart and soul into my work, that my designs are original and take a considerable amount of time to create and that I am living my dream one knot at a time! I thank you all so very much for your support!
Thank you everyone! XO!
Live, Love, Tat!
