Ugly wins the day

We have a winner! Voters in the Ugly Necklace Contest have overwhelmingly chosen We Three Rings necklace, submitted by Jane of AdlensKrafts. She explains in her entry: "A friend of my daughter's wanted a necklace out of these three wooden rings from an old handbag. Well I tried. Maybe I was asleep when I made it."

We Three Rings practically swept the competition, but other necklaces had their detractors as well. The runners up, in order, were:

One Damn Big Ship, submitted by girleddycreations.







Spring Has Sprung, submitted by shelialk.








These Are the Voyages, submitted by sailorjenny.






And finally, Eeek a Bug, submitted by AnnieHowes.







Significantly, each of these ugly necklaces had at least one person say they thought it was pretty cute. So there's hope for all us who have ever made or tried to unload ugly jewelry!

Congratulations again to the winner. She'll be receiving a pair of lovely bobby pins from Callooh Callay. For the rest of you: Better luck next year.
