Entry #1
LizEdgar


Description:
I made a bracelet for my challenge entry. I chose the yellow beads to symbolize the dandelion before it changes to the seedlings. I chose the millefiori beads to represent the the lands that dandelions can grow in. The crystals represent the dandelion when the seedlings are ready to fly away and plant their new roots. I just learned that the white puffy part of the dandelion is actually called a "wishie" or a spherical "clock".


Entry #2
Rhradcliffedesigns



Description:
My entry into the challenge is a mosaic done on a wooden plate approximately 11" in diameter. This piece is done with tessarae tiles. And while water resistant it is not food safe nor should it be soaked in water. You can display it in a stand, flat or mounted on the wall. I had fun with this idea and fun playing with tiles after a few years from my last mosaic work. The dandelion was a challenge to depict so I hope you enjoy it as much as I did planning and making it. The back of this plate is painted kelly green and compliments the green of the leaves.


Entry #3
