Christmas competition

Good evening everyone!
I made it! I've entered my products into the Christmas competition and I'm really excited about it! As you know from my previous post there were some parameters: First there was "Modern Christmas" with the limitations that it had to be sleek, modern, minimalistic, and so on. So I did some thinking and remembered my "Hardware-store-collection" which is Jewellery I make from hex nuts and jump rings. (I don't know why, it just makes me happy!) and I came up with these two pendants:

For the modern Theme I also made my first ever (and probably never again - these things are a lot of work!!!) Charm Bracelet which is supposed to remind you of Santa Claus hats... I hope it does otherwise I completely and utterly failed.... Anyway. Here we go:

The other topic I decided to make something for is "White Christmas". You don't get a lot of choice with the colour here so the exciting part was picking the right beads and getting a lot of texture in there. I chose white and light grey crochet beads, faux pearls, little silver-plated spacer beads, faceted glass crystals, and beautiful Howlite nuggets. And I will definitely use these Howlite nuggets again, they are wonderful to work with! They are white and the structure looks like turquoise structure, with dark veins and a wonderfully smooth surface. Here is the necklace I made. It's another first: my first ever double-strand!

Now all that's left is waiting for people to vote. If you think what I made is great and you decide to support me (or if you just want to see bigger and more pictures of the products) just click on the pictures, each will take you to the shop entry for the competition. If you want to, you can "heart" my product, on the far right is a little heart symbol that you can click on. The contribution with the most hearts wins.
Also, the competition is still open until the 14th of November so if you want to join just read through the instructions on the DaWanda-Blog and make up your own contribution! It could be anything! I would love to see what you would make!
