August Challenge Theme

The June EBW Challenge was won by Licia of Liciabeads. Her prize, as always, is getting to choose our next Challenge Theme. Here is what she had to say about her theme:

First Ladies of Style

Around the world and through time, styles, patterns and textures have developed. Every so often a person, or even culture stands out as having a great eye for style and design. I wanted to choose a theme that could span time and cultures yet recognize that eye for style. Your work can range from an interpretation of the bold and colorful patterns designs found in ancient times, to traditional cultural designs that are found around the world, all the way to the more modern styles of present times.

The Challenge has been issued and it sounds like you will want to give it some thought! What are EBW members going to come up with? You can be sure that whatever they do create will be wonderful!

You can start your entry today and complete and list it by midnight Etsy time, August 5, 2009!

Any style, any technique with a majority of beadweaving is welcome.
ONE only entry allowed per person.
The piece MUST be created between now and August 5, 2009.

See our Challenge FAQ here for all of the details on the rules of our challenges.
