Yep! I'm on cloud 9. At school they have a juried art show going on for the entire arts department (jewelry, painting, drawing, sculpting, digital media, photography...and I don't know what else is under "Arts" here at school). I submitted my prayer box pendant from last semester's "Fabrication Jewelry" course. It was my final project...quite tough for me to do, and I almost melted the entire thing down while making it. LOL! My teacher was Theresa Vu. After I submitted my entry, I dreamt that my entry was rejected by the jury. And when I woke up I thought...yeah...maybe...there were mistakes in it. And many times I've had very prophetic dreams, so I took this one seriously too.
However, I was very happily surprised when last Tuesday the head of the jewelry department walked into our class (casting class) and said that I had won an award! I didn't know till then that it was even accepted in the show! LOL!! So this was a huge surprise and a huge honor too. The pictures above are of course that of the winner.
