Our theme for September is “FAIRY TALES” and the entries for this week’s design challenge were inspired by the theme of “SLEEPING BEAUTY”.

Jo Pound of Jewelry by Jolane
I added a red poisoned apple to a black and white bracelet I used for recycling. The black represents the evil Queen and the white, Sleeping Beauty. I added the spikes to the red apple for the poison. Had a great time with this one! 

Tammy Adams of Paisley Lizard
Reconstituted turquoise spikes (spindles, thorns) are wrapped in a tangle of silver wire with seven clear faceted crystals (for the seven virtues). A single black crystal dangle on each spike represents vice. 

Diane Perry of Catcophany Wearable Art
Delicate filigree and Swarovski glass pearls cascade from copper. It is perfect for a princess. 

Laura Bracken of Bracken Designs Studio Art Jewelry
For my Sleeping Beauty piece, I designed an image with Princess Aurora (Briar Rose) sleeping with stylized thorns encircling her. I transferred the design to copper and gave the piece an acid etch bath to create dimension. I then filed an aurora (aurora borealis) image above the sleeping princess, added a patina and sealed the metal. 

Sherri Jones of SenoJ Designs
My interpretation of Sleeping Beauty is best described by the extraordinary artist Alphonse Mucha. Two worlds collide decoupage and beading. The classic story is both eclectic and timeless. 

Vivi Varvarande of Vivilima Silver Jewelry And Bijouterie
This is a silver necklace with a fairy and two stones: a big faceted amethyst ans a bright pink chalcedony, all wrapped in silver.  Fairies have always been on story tales.
