New EST Challenge theme !

I got it! .....the honor to host this week Challenge of European street team on Etsy!
My " meander-copper- earrings" were chosen.....

...and after some meditation, the new theme came to my mind.....
I am very interested in Textures, and after " folds" and "winding" it might be great to try some more of these basically expressions, and so this is my new theme : "wattle"
Everything grid-like, braided, wattled,... basket work ...
I´m curious about your ideas !
just send me your entries in an etsy convo...I´m looking forward!
