Two Winning Projects in Altered Art Actress Competition
I belong to an awesome Altered Art Group on Flickr. Every month, they hold an art competition with a different theme, and all members vote for their three favorite designs. The theme for July was "actresses". The winners were announced today and I was thrilled to find out that two of my designs won 2nd and 3rd place. What a great way to end the day! Yay!!!
By the way, winning designs were: 2nd Place - Lucille Ball Resin Ring and 3rd Place - Rapunzel (Lotte Schone) Fairytale Box
I am an mixed media art fanatic and love creating original handmade designs. I enjoy making dolls, quilts and jewelry, among other things. My jewelry designs have taken on a life of their own for the past several years. Due to customer demand, much of my time is spent designing and creating new little pieces of wearable art, most of which is Catholic (faith-based) in design.
My creations have been published in several quality publications, including Polymer Cafe, Belle Armoire Jewelry and Haute Handbags, among others. I have also been featured as a guest artist in several books. I am an award-winning jewelry artist; I was selected as Prilosec OTC's Eco-Chic Jewelry artist in 2011. My designs are currently being sold in boutiques and retail outlets across the United States. This includes the Jell-O Museum gift shop in New York. I also designed and made the jewelry for St. Damien of Molokai's Canonization celebrations in Hawaii (one of my proudest achievements.)
I am the owner of Two Crafty Mules which is being rebranded as "Wanda Maria Designs" to better accommodate my jewelry line.
