This challenge kit from our host, Andrew Thornton, is perfect for fall. The beads
included are warm shades of beige, brown and cream. I love to pour the bead out onto
my work table and sift and sort through all the treasures. I began pairing up Czech glass,
gemstones, glass pearls and crystals into earring sets. I dug into my stash for some
accent pieces and I found some filigree leaves and ceramic round charms glazed a
sandy beige. Perfect!
This is my favorite pair. I left the wire tail long, strung a crystal on it and curled it up for
a fun accent. I pressed it down on top of the stone to lay flat.
Andrew's mystery component is made out of polymer clay, so I decided to drill a
second hole at the bottom so I could add another layer of beads. Once I was happy
with the layout of the pendant, I decided a simple antique copper chain was all it
needed. I wanted it to remain the star in the design!
