Spring Awakening Challenge

Aren't the colors of spring beautiful?  Bright and fresh with promises of more to come!
This is my third time participating in the challenges hosted by Andrew Thornton.  I will
be challenged next month, but sadly, missed out on May's kit.  I need to be faster next time!
Every kit includes a mystery component made by Andrew.  I wanted to make something a
little different this month, so I made a keychain with the polymer clay pendant!
The dangles on the chain were hard to photograph....when it isn't laying flat, the dangles
 have great movement!  My car key is going on this in a few minutes.
Next I used the waxed linen, Czech glass and carved bead for a fun bracelet.
I picked out some great bead sets for 3 pairs of earrings and used the leftover waxed linen
pieces with the flower pair.  I love them all!
And now for the bead soup that is left over....a random memory wire bracelet!  I made
the 2 owl dangle charms out of ceramic clay to accent the design.  I think it turned out cute!

You can see more of my ceramic beads and pendants at
Please hop around to the following challenge blogs to see what my friends designed with
their Spring Awakening Challenge kits....and thank you to our host, Andrew!
