End of Summer Challenge Entries!

The team was challenged to create an item that reflects the Summer's End. The beginning of Autumn, serious harvest preparations as we see the fruition of our efforts, not only in the garden but in our lives. What have we been putting our energies into? What results do we anticipate?

Here are the entries! Be sure to vote for your favorite!

1. Red Agate Pentacle Hematite Aragonite Moonstone Gemstone Necklace 22 Inches - Summers End By FaerieNotions!

A beautiful sun, setting in the sky, is what this pendant reminds me of. Orange and red bring warmth to the eye, accented by a small pentacle. Hematite, aragonite, moonstone and silver plated spacers make up the rest of this great necklace. The necklace measures at 22" and is finished off with a S clasp. It is believed by many that stones have metaphysical properties. Hematite is a healing stone, excellent also for it's grounding abilities. Moonstone has a gentle protective energy, also well known for attracting love. Aragonite brings an urge to find truth in reality, as well as increasing energy in your self-worth as you seek to find the truth in yourself, and red agate is known for its healing ability and for bringing calmness and peace to the wearer. All of these stones work together to bring you to a more complete and fruitful place, a place where you can harvest your best abilities and reap the benefits of good physical and mental health.

2. Summer's End Knitted Drawstring Pouch by Green Fingers

I designed this pouch for the PaganTeam's "Summer's End" design challenge. It reflects the colors of trees and changing leaves.

It's the perfect size to hold a crystal sphere, or to protect small items like jewelry when traveling. The leaf motif is knitted from superwash wool, and the body of the pouch is a cotton bamboo blend. The entire pouch is machine washable in cold water, but should be dried flat.

3. ACEO Quilted, Embellished Textile Art by Cobaltquilter

This ACEO is one in a series of quilted and embellished trading card sized textile art.

This listing is for the one seen in the first photo titled 'In the light of the new moon.'

This is my entry in the Paganteam Summer's end challenge, winter is a dark time of the year for me, much like a new moon I must maintain my awareness of the coming light!

There are 9 ACEOs in this Gray and Black series.

I have doodled with my sewing machine in black on a gray fabric, this was a practice/warm up piece. I then cut the piece into 2.5 X 3.5 inch trading card sized pieces of art. I have embellished with beads and charms. The edges are a knotted selection of yarns I picked up at the local thrift store!

Each small quilt is then glued to a piece of heavy weight watercolor paper. Each one is titled, signed and dated with the year.
