As a self proclaimed claysmith, I act as a midwife in the birthing of all things CLAY - pots, beads, whistles and rattles - which speak not only of the maker but the user and the society where the art of clay is permitted to flourish.

JEAN WELLS posted a CHALLENGE on her blog http://www.jeanawells.blogspot.com/ to anyone wishing to make an artisan necklace using one of the clay sculptural focals. The CHALLENGE officially ended today, September 15th, 2012 and the winner of the $50 to spend in my BHClaysmith Etsy Shop will be announced at the beginning of the week. I want to stress that the prize will be awarded randomly to one of the artists who chose to enter and in no way is determined by the entry submitted. I just spent a good hour looking over the work submitted and am simply blown away by it. (I am so glad that I do not have to pick just one as BEST of CHALLENGE and that the winner will be decided by an impartial computer!) Every participant came up with such magical, innovative Art-to-Wear necklaces which not only include one of my focals but thoughtful, appropriate complements.
