Ugly Necklace Contest 2010

by Liz of Lush Beads

Fewer entries does not mean things were any less ugly this year in the Lush Beads Ugly Necklace contest. The judging was held on May 1st this year, and almost 100 people voted in this anticipated event! Entries featured such varied materials as yarn, polymer clay, glass, pineapple fibers, eyelash yarn, and stone.

Boston Handmade's own nancyrosetta created a piece for the contest this year, titled Pineapple Voodoo Chicken Blood Wedding Necklace. Rumor has it that a fellow BHer who is getting married this summer may want it for her bridal necklace! (Or not...)

In total, there were 7 worthy entries. The winner, by a landslide, was "Trash to Treasure":
This necklace is chock full of handmade resin pieces, containing all manner of...embellishment. I have been told that there is at least one dust bunny and one chewed piece of gum in this piece.

All of the entries can be seen in the Photos section of the Lush Beads Facebook page. Many thanks to all who participated, voted, and made this our 2nd year of ugly fun!
