Send me your overwrought, your color blind, your clunky messes yearning to be seen. It's the first annual Ugly Necklace Contest. How about it? Can you beat this (the mother of all ugly necklaces)?
Entering is easy: just post a link in the comments here, or e-mail your file to me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or convo me at Etsy. I'll save them all (first, I'll laugh at them), then in a few weeks post them for everyone to vote on a winner. The deadline is two weeks from now, March 15.
The necklaces can be either vintage (20 years old or older) or something you made (not the new necklace Aunt Mabel gave you for Christmas, and definitely not the monster you saw on someone else's website). Assuming there are enough entries, I may split it into two categories.
OK, so the rules are a little vague. Still, what have you got to lose? In addition to the bragging rights involved, there's a prize! I was going to send the winner my ugly necklace, but then I saw one of the same series on ebay for $28, so screw that. Instead you'll get a nice pair of bobby pins made from vintage buttons, like the ones in my shop. Much better, eh?
I think I've made this clear enough, but let me know if you have any questions. And may the most atrocious necklace win!
