Fire Divas Quarterly Jewelry Challenge: Holidays! RESULTS!!!

We have a winner!  This quarter's Jewelry Challenge winner: R. Scott Bjorge of Accente.  Congratulations Scott!  Here's his first-place-winning jewelry challenge entry (using the spider he designed that I made!):

Char Black Widow Necklace by R. Scott Bjorge of Accente
From the Fire Divas Challenge entry:
"Sitting in a dark corner we find Char our Black Widow Spider, designed by Patrice of Shepherd Creations. Char awaits her prey perched upon a patina copper web surrounded by aqua colored glow beads, designed by Janel of Janel Dudley Beads.
Our sexy spider loves Halloween but is secured in a manner that she can be removed and another focal piece can be designed for year around wearing."

Fortunately, there are also second and third place winners: 

"Bracelet made with olive green bead set by Fire Diva Holly Dare, brushed vermeil heart beads, lampwork red & green dotted bead, 10mm and 6mm green fire polish beads, gold spacers, bead caps, branch drop and gold vermeil filigree clasp.
My inspiration is from The Grinch Who Stole Christmas.
"And what happened then? Well, in Whoville they say that the Grinch's small heart grew three sizes that day."
The bracelet depicts the Grinch's transformation, while the dotted lampwork bead on the clasp represents the Whos. The gold branch is the horn the Grinch tied on his dog Max’s head.
What would the holidays be without watching all those wonderful TV specials we grew up with?"

"This necklace was inspired by the focal bead, "Monstrous Algae" by Melanie of Arensea. The beadwork is netting strung on soft flex wire with brass findings and swarovski crystals."

Great job, jewelry artists!  Enjoy your prizes, and remember to enter your goodies in the next quarter's challenge for another chance to win :)
