Introducing The Gauntlet: Monthly Maille Throwdown.
Every month is a new contest, with a new theme. A featured artist versus everybody else. Last one standing gets a $25 store credit to C&T Designs, bragging rights, and will be the featured artist the next month.
A complete list of rules can be found here
First months challenge?
Byzantine. Anything and everything byzantine. Byzantine variants, byzantine with beads, byzantine with other weaves.
Need some examples?
Since this is new and we don’t have a winner for last month, hence no featured artist, we have picked one. Lauren of Edge Metal Elegance. We will tell you a little bit more about Lauren in a post tomorrow.
