Gourd Art Competition Awards
I entered several of my gourd creations in the 2010 California Gourd Society Gourd Art Competition. It was held in conjunction with the 14th Annual Gourd Art Festival held at the Welburn Gourd Farm, June 26th and 27th. And, I am delighted to say I received a First Place ribbon in the Wearable Gourd Accessory Category for my necklace design, Narcisco (left). I also received a Judge's Choice ribbon for the same necklace. In the Gilded Gourd Category, I received a First Place ribbon for my necklace design, Odetta (right).
