November Challenge - Beauty of the Flower Winner!

This month's EBW challenge had 17 entries and received 685 votes and we have a clear winner! With 174 of the votes, our winner is 13. Hibiscus Necklace - grakowsky.

Here is what she had to say about her piece:

When I saw the photo of the Hibiscus shown in my thumbnails, I knew it was the flower I wanted to use. The color of the petals was so striking to me, especially against the green background. I also loved the shape of the gently curving petals and immediately thought I could model them.

Here are the other 9 runners-up:

Second: 11. Pink Flower Sun Necklace - demetgun3

Third: 10. Mystical Orchid Necklace - CieloDesign

Fourth: 14. Water Lily - oraninbar

Fifth: 17. Warm Winter Bloom Necklace - SmadarsTreasure

Sixth: 5. Lady Slipper - savoystudio

Seventh: 12. Midnight hibiscus - Lauralia

Eighth: 1. Mother of Pearl Brooch - enchantedbeads

Ninth & Tenth Tie: 4. Bird of Paradise - ArtfulAr
