I received a rejection email today. Not even a snail mail letter that I could frame or throw darts at. Lark's new 500 Rings book will not be showcasing my submissions. Or any of these other fabulous ring maker's work. Bruce Metcalf (the flower brooch in the center square) was the juror and wanted more avante garde entries than ours, I suppose. Too bad for him then! The world has missed out on a world of talented artists and beautiful pieces. I wish I could see what else ended up on the cutting room floor.
