Just wondering if I could submit a project that I am nearly finished?The reason I ask is that the system is not letting me access the ‘Entry’ section,maybe its living here in Eire? Happy Christmas everyone.

I’m new to this contest thing. Can it be a project previously posted? Or does it have to be a post never seen before? A project made special for the contest?

-- I think, therefore I think I am.

is the contest only open to jewelry, or could it be a different type of wearable item?

it’s wooden jewelry ... but oh wouldn’t that have been cool (anything wearable) – maybe that’s something for the future, perhaps!

So, only wearable wooden jewelry is allowed?
Is that correct?

Thanks for helping me to ensure I am working on the right project :-)

-- If I can do it, so can you.

“Wooden Wearables”
“Wooden Jewelry”

That is the focus.

Someone asked about having more than one item in the entry. Although it doesn’t state “one piece of jewelry” what I have found in the past is that people find it confusing to vote for an entry when there is more than one project in the picture. However, having said that, “jewelry” could mean a matching set of items.
You will have to be your own judge.
