Your -admin team Contest Information Theme: FRIENDSHIP!
It's ALL about friendship... Why?: because friendship is one of
the most precious things we can experience in life. It's even in the name of what many of us regularly create: "friendship bracelets"...but this time it's about creating a special gift for a very special person: ...your best friend. Procedure: Here's what you need to do, if you
wish to enter:
Knot a symbol of friendship for your best friend and yourself. They don't
have to be, but can be, bracelets, however, they must be knotted and be something you would really
like to share with your best friend! Make sure your item is in two parts, (so that both friends, your bestie ...and yourself, each have a part to keep) The items should evoke and create an emotively strong bond. Bracelets, pendants, necklaces, keyrings, two halfs of a whole - everything is allowed, as long as it is knotted, is in two parts and is something that expresses your friendship.
Jim Morrison said, A friend is someone who gives you total freedom to be yourself. So, be yourself! and share it with your friend! Make something special, that shows how unique your friendship to this special person is. Then take a picture of it, add a desciption of why you want to share this item with your best friend, submit your deviation in our contest folder and then give your sign of friendship to this special human being, you are proud of to call your friend (which is in our opinion the most beautiful part of the contest...) Guidelines:
You can submit
only one entry
Your entry has to be made of knots and something double (for
your friend and yourself)
It does not matter what it is - can be two pendants, two halves of a whole thing, two bracelets, two necklaces etc. - just be creative!

A LITTLE INSPIRATION:
Of course we've got a folder of examples for your inspiration again:
- but we could not find so many fitting submissions and most of them are bracelets, so browse a bit and maybe look in other categories, too:
Okay, now, just be creative, make something special and show your best friend how much he/she/it means to you.
All the best and good luck!
