Haute Couture Beading Contest is back...with a twist!
Open to beaders around the world! You may have ONE entry!
This year's Haute Couture contest will be from one of my boards on Pinterest. There are 24 images to choose from. You can see them HERE
Using one of these photos as inspiration, I want everyone who enters this to think 'outside their box'. Do not imagine the model wearing the Haute Couture as wearing your jewelry, use the image you chose to inspire you in color, technique, textures, shapes, and style. Go bold, go bright, use your imagination to conjure up your wildest dreams, as these designers have.
Your bead work is to be bead embroidered or bead woven, or both.
Your photos must be clear and sized at 1000 pixels wide by 1360 pixels high and 300ppi. Blurry photos will not be accepted and you will be notified, so that you may retake your photos in due time. Blurry photos sent the last day of the contest will not be accepted, you will receive condolences. All photos need to have your logo or name in the bottom right corner.
With your photos, please send me the link of the one that inspired you. The link will look similar to this: [http://pinterest.com/pin/115052965451799538/]. I need to know how this inspired your piece and a brief (200-300 words) write up as to why.
