Frenzied Motion Challenge Reveal

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! 
If you'd like to see more of my ceramic beads, please visit my etsy store at  Please hop around the following designers blogs
to see what they created with this fun kit.  And thanks again to Andrew!

  1. Love your handmade toggle! My favorite is the bracelet. Great Job! Nice to meet you in person at Bead Fest!

  2. That ceramic toggle is certainly the star!!!! Beautiful work.

  3. Your mojo seems like it was doing ok to me! Your bracelet with your beautiful toggle is wonderful! Those ovals were meant to be pendants. They are so pretty it doesn't take much to dress them up. I love the earrings - those clear pink flat sided beads were some of my favorites in the kit. Great job!

  4. It was nice to see you at BeadFest, even if just for a little bit! I hope you had a good show! I think you did a spectacular job! All of the pieces are so unique and fun! The bracelet has such an opulent feel with the multi-strand and your ceramic toggle loop is the perfect focal. The necklace has such an airy, confectionary feel to it... kind of like what I imagine a fairy princess would wear. And the wearings are dazzling! I colors and the clear silhouette! Thanks so much for participating!

  5. Wow! I love the ceramic toggle!! It adds a feminine touch to the design and the dangles add nice movement. Your ribbon necklace is also feminine and whimsical. The earrings will pair nicely with your bracelet/necklace. So pretty!
