Desert Sands Challenge Reveal
This is my first time participating in one of Andrew Thornton's challenges! I found a few ceramic glazes that matched the sandy color scheme of the large collection of beads included in the challenge kit. I made some charm pairs and 2 pendants for necklaces. Sadly, the necklaces haven't come to life yet, but I made a few fun bracelets and earrings!
This is what remains for me to make 2 necklaces with. The reveal will have to wait until I return from Tucson. I fly out tomorrow for 12 days! I sell my ceramic beads at To Bead True Blue and I hope to see lots of beading friends there...and of course make some new ones!
I used memory wire for the base of these 2 fun bracelets. The mix of beads were fun....I just randomly stung them on. The top bracelet features 2 hand rolled ceramic beads that I created for dangle accents and the bottom bracelet contains the kit mystery component. At first my mind went to necklace pendant, but I love it as a bracelet dangle!
There were so many great earring beads in this mix of challenge beads. I have sorted some out for future earrings. But for now, I have created these....all fun and happy little designs!
