Uncommon Goods is hosting a monthly contest to find unique handmade jewelry for their website. They are looking for fresh designs, interesting materials and jewelry that tells a story.  Do you have what it takes?  Enter your favorite design today and see what happens - you never know!

Here are some of my favorite handcrafted picks from Uncommon Goods to give you a feel for what they are all about.  You can also see some of the current designs from last month's challenge here.
