TIME TO VOTE!

The time has come and I could not be more excited!
Blogging Link Challenge Projects REVEALED!
I would like to start by saying that I am so happy with the results of the first blog challenge that I hosted. So happy in fact, I am planning on doing another challenge using my larger links this fall.
I sent 25 links out to 21 people who contacted me to participate. Half of the participants received black links and the other half received tortoise shell links.
YOU HAVE UNTIL MIDNIGHT on AUGUST 27th TO VOTE FOR YOUR FAVORITE PIECE!
Just comment below, telling me which piece is your favorite. On the 28th of August I will add up the totals and the person with the most votes will get a $20.00 gift certificate to my etsy shop WillowBranchBeads. If you do not have a google account but would still like to vote you can also vote for your favorite piece on my facebook page Beads & Boutique.
When you go to facebook and vote, please look for my photos. I just posted all of the pictures in an album there. You can place your vote by commenting on the album or the picture of the piece you like. Thanks! 
Challengers: Please vote for your favorite piece, not your own.
Please share information about the challenge on your facebook page and/or other social network sites.
Encourage friends and family to vote for your piece.

Wow,I don't think any of these are similar! What a great experiment this was. My vote is for Ambra Gostoli. I had to eeny-meeny it between three of the entries, though. What fun this was! I'm off to hop now...

Well, it was hard to choose --especially between two of them, that I think are equally beautiful, but I'm going with Tania Spivey.

Kashmira said...

Wow!!! liked them all, but LOVED the set by Terri Gauthier! Those earrings are amazing!

AntiquityTravelers said...

Wow these really do all have a character of their own! I just can't choose between Tania, Kashmira and Terri ... all three are stunning!

Linda Y said...

They all were great and it is a toss up for me between Terri Gauthier and Kashmira Patel but I think Terri'scomes out slightly ahead for me.

Janeen said...

I just posted all of the pictures on my facebook page. You can vote for them there if you like.

Micheladas said...

I would like to vote for Jennifer Reno.. thanks.

Katherine at Terra Beadworks said...

They are all very lovely but the one that would appeal to me personally if I was going to wear it would be Kashmira Patel's. Something about the clasps and rings balance out the links very nicely. And of course who doesn't like hearts?
It's my favorite!

Captcha is hard to see!!

Marlene Cupo said...

Shelley Graham Turner is my personal favorite.

Unknown said...

I vote Janeen! i love the colors.

kmorgan said...

Wow. Everyone did so well. There were two in particular I really liked. My favorite was Kay Thomerson's. I like the use of leather & beads. It looks fun & fresh & a good use of creative skills. My vote goes to Kay. Hats off to everyone else.

Susan said...

I like the pieces by Janeen Sorenson. So happy and colorful, and perfect for summer!

Jen Ren said...

Okay, it's been really tough for me to decide. There are so many I like. It's amazing to see how different and unique everyone's piece turned out. My vote is for Paula Hisel. :)

Charming Peggy said...

One hour left to vote folks!

Charming Peggy said...

Congratulations Jami Shipp! With 15 votes you are the winner of the first ever link challenge!

Jami aka DaMamaShipp said...

I feel so honored. I was most definitely in good company. you ladies rocked your designs. Thanks to all who voted for my piece. It was a priveledge and honor to be in the challenge. I had fun taking the links and letting them become something people would want to wear. My goal is to stretch my limits every month with something new or different. What a joy it has been... Keep creating - it makes the world a happy place.

Terri said...
