EBW August Challenge - First Ladies of Style - Has a Winner!

The August EBW Challenge had 30 entries, with a total of 841 votes (even more than last month!) and 115 of them went to our winner
21. Royal Blue - Marie-Antoinette - StudioAnnieVeillette

Here is what she had to say about the piece:

Marie Antoinette inspired the "Royal Blue" choker designed and presented here. The inspiration she offered for this beaded jewelry design initially came from her genuine warmth and caring attitude toward others...I was further inspired by her love of the fine arts, dance, and fashion. A great deal can be said about her wardrobe and her sense of aesthetics...

THIRD: 9. Bright Young Thing - copperwaycrafts

FOURTH: 10. Luthien - MadeByOlga

FIFTH: 6. Shades of the Southwest - beadsandblooms
