It's time to start making entries for Theme Contest 23 - Myth and Legend. Entries will be accepted for 12 weeks, from now until the end of Monday January 20, 2014. Submit your entries in this thread and please start a new post for each entry.

Be sure to read and follow the rules of the contest listed below. (Seriously, read them, follow them! If you have questions, just ask.) Also, as always, don't put any pictures in here that aren't actual submissions, as I will then be forced to cut off your head and nail it on my wall of cut off heads! Very Happy (It's just really confusing to sort them out and creates extra work.)

If you plan on entering the contest, let me know in here with an "I'm in". Okay! Ready, Set, Go make something mythy and legendy!

_____________________________________________
Contest Rules
1. Entries must be previously unsubmitted work. Entries must be at least 2/3 maille woven within the time frame of the contest. The remaining 1/3 can be any maille previously woven or any non-maille. Maille consists of any rings, metal or otherwise, or ring substitutes like scales or pop tabs. Non-maille consists of things like beads or wire wraps.

2. You can submit as many entries as you like.

3. Pictures and descriptions of the entry must be submitted to the contest submission thread before the deadline, by hosting the pictures offsite. (In other words, you need to use an image hosting site to place your picture in the entry thread. They are free to use, you just have to register with them to create an account. Some examples of image hosting sites are TinyPic, Photobucket, Flickr, and ImageShack.) Pictures must be a MAXIMUM of 100KB and a MAXIMUM of 800px per side.

4. The submission period for entries generally lasts 12 weeks. After the deadline for contest entries, the contest organizer will create a voting thread with all the entries, to be voted on by the membership. The entire membership may vote, each member having one vote. Polls usually last one week before the winner is declared.

5. The winner of the contest will receive a colored shield by their avatar with a number corresponding to the contest they won. The winner will also be granted automatic inclusion of their suggestion on the list of themes for the next contest.

6. The contest organizer may invalidate any entry. If you have concerns about your or any other entry, please contact the contest organizer with a PM. If the contest organizer deems it necessary, a new thread for public discussion will be opened.

Three maybes so far. No fo sho's.

I'm interested to see what creations everyone comes up with and how they interpret the theme. There should be a nice mix of different applications.

I hope to learn something from the entries.


There is no such thing as weave ownership. If someone produces a weave sample, they own that physical piece of mail, but not rights to the weave pattern itself.

here is an entry

Pandora has a charm bracelet so I made one for Kali, It's a 1-2-3 chain and I decorated it with the heads of little rabbit fufu's children to restore karmic balance after he continued scooping up the field mice and bopping them on the head.

I like djgm's bracelet.
The story lets me understand how it fits the theme.

We may need to include that when they post the winner.
It may be helpful when they are looking back at the archives.

It may also help when voting. Previously the voting threads have only had a picture.

Just a thought.
