Our theme for September is “FAIRY TALES” and the entries for this week’s design challenge were inspired by the theme of “LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD”.

Jo Pound of Jewelry by Jolane
I made a bead embroidery bracelet with the center representing Little Red Riding Hood, the brown represents the wolf and basket, and the grey is the winding path through the forest.

Sherri Jones of SenoJ Designs
As a child I loved the classic tale of Little Red Riding Hood. This piece of Abalone Shell is designed with an overlay of Antique Gold, featuring L.R.R.H. and the infamous Wolf. 

Tammy Adams of Paisley Lizard
I opted to tell the story from the wolf's perspective, using an etched pewter wolf face pendant on a strand of green aventurine heishe with brecciated jasper accents.

Laura Bracken of Bracken Designs Studio Art Jewelry
Woods and forests intrigue me so I’m telling the story as Little Red Riding Hood is in the forest, which I’m depicting as menacing because that’s where she first meets the big bad wolf.  Red is a small bit of colored resin surrounded by the steel trees of the forest in this slightly over the top necklace.

Kelly Hosford Patterson of Pyxee Styx
Jewelry artist is just one of my many hats. I'm really a mixed media artist, and textiles is my other love. "Little Red Riding Hood" nuno felted bejeweled woodland opera cloak. A one-of-kind-hand made textile. A blend of hand dyed silk, Merino wool, Cotswold locks, Alpaca, Yak down, hand spun yarn, Angelina fiber, silk flowers, sequins, berries, and probably a few other things I forgot. The woods woven right into the cloak. Embellished with little bits of glitz and glam, and tied with antique beaded bronze tassels. I could only submit one photo, so I'm going to have to refer you to my blog post for all the close ups and details.
