CONTEST IS OPEN 01.07.2012 - 15.10.2012 / UPDATETheme
"Pearls are Women´s best Friends"

"What is it about Pearls that makes them so mysterious? So exotic?
Pesonally I think it is because they are adornments that are made by the sea...
They are not hard, cold gemstones that have been crushed by the earth for millions of years;
they have been nestled in the soft warmth of an oyster, surrounded by salty and sandy waters.
Diamonds say, "See me sparkle! Look at me I am beautiful."
Pearls say, "I am mysterious, so come closer and figure out why.
I do not flash, there is more to me."
When thinking of pearls, most have visions of the "string of pearls"
a young girl gets as she sets off to university or is given for her wedding day.
Signifying purity and even perhaps virginity.
But the Pearl laughs at this.
Its demure, gossimer glow tells another story all together.
Have you seen pearls in candlelight?
Pearls have remained quiet and relatively uninvasive over time,
but take another glance at history to see the most seduct



All prizes will be given in the next 10 - 20 days.


The winners ( I, II, III place ) should contact directly to the stock-artists,
which offered an exclusive-stockpack for the winners and let them know,
that you won the contest.
You will receive the prize directly from them.
