Congratulations to Patricia Buchanan, the winner of our Tree of Life Jewelry Design Challenge for July 2012! Our blog readers voted her “Indian Summer” Necklace their favorite. Here is what inspired Patricia:
“For me, Klimt’s Tree of Life painting brought to mind the riotous colors that typically come with Ohio’s Indian Summers and I was inspired to capture all those luscious autumn hues into this lariat along with a whimsical little owl to mirror the birds perched in the tree of the painting.”

Our Editor’s Pick for this challenge is Jelena Louie with her “Arbor Vitae” bracelet!
Jelena had this to say about her necklace: I love spirals and “curlycues,” and I also love pearls. The shapes and colors in Klimt’s “Under The Tree of Life” were just the right stimulus to inspire me to make this “curly pearly” tree bracelet.
Submissions for our next Design Challenge: A Day at the Beach are due Thursday August 9! See Design Calendar for details!
