I know that many of you are very ingenious when it comes to recycling items from everyday use into great jewelry pieces. This contest is for you! Happy Mango Beads is launching the contest, begins today and you have only 15 days to get your entry in to them and its only one entry per person.
They have categories to accommodate all types of media and artists:
Trash to Cash - paper, plastic, bottle caps, etc.
Compost Happens! – natural, organic, sustainable
Heavy Metal – metals, old keys, interesting parts
I'm not a dang hippie, I just want to enter this contest! – trashy elegance
I must confess I do not have much imagination when it comes to expanding beyond gemstones, pearls, and glass beads... but maybe I will give it a try, maybe trashy elegance? wonder what that means?
