16th Blogger/ Non Blogger Challenge

Hello, I am the winner of Blogger/Non blogger challenge 15 therefor no the Hostess for the 16th Blogger/Non-blogger Challenge.  I chose this Landscape Art by Ivan Laliashvili. Ivan is a concept artist and illustrator in Russia. He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Saint Petersburg, Russia. I found his illustrations to be quite colorful and would let Artist imaginations soar.
Ivan's  illustration "On the beach" is also rich in detail. Love these.  So, have you ever heard of Debbie Sanders of Debbie Sanders Glass beads?      She creates organic glass beads. I thought a nice prize would be a Mini sample from my stash.  Are these so gorgeous

These glass disc are adorned with silver glass and fine silver wire accents.  The next choice of prize are a collection of gemstones from my hoard, I mean stash.  Theme being red white and blue. Large red jasper focal, red MOP, white shell pearls, alittle pricey but oh so gorgeous I love to just look at them, ahem I mean try to figure out what to showcase them best in. And for blue some jade or quartz.  
Just beauties they are.  Look at all the earrings , bracelet and Pendant you could create, wow a whole Parure. Additionaly, hope thats spelled right: There will be some Brass elements in both Prizes.

Well the Reveal is January 5, 2015, If you click on the blogger challenge Illustration to the left of the blog it will take you to the
Face book Blogger voting page.       Entries have to be emailed to me by midnight January 4th to be added to the albulm.   The Prizes are worth $25.00+   winner gets to choose and then a second Artist who has the runner up position gets the second prize.  I am so excited to see what is being created.  Stay tuned and as always
