The colors in this challenge kit just popped out when I saw it! This is what I received:
It is so much fun to sort through the bags of bead goodies our challenge host, Andrew
Thornton sends. My choices go into bracelet, necklace and earring piles. Sadly I waited
until the night before the reveal to make my designs. I just got home from Bead Fest
Philadelphia, and don't have all my mojo flowing yet! This is what I managed to design.
I switched out the hot pink waxed linen that came in the kit to this lilac shade that was in
my stash. I used the purple disc beads and square seed beads to make this fun bracelet. I
wanted my ceramic toggle to be the star in this design. I really like it!
I loved this oval gemstone. I paired it with a 12mm round ceramic bead with some
spacers and end caps. Viola! A fun pendant for a simple ribbon necklace.
The earrings feature some fun wire wrapping and shimmering crystals, What's not to love?
I didn't use the mystery component included in the kit.....yet!
