Week 10: Mellow Rose

I’ve been amassing a hoard of components for this challenge since…week 6, maybe? (The pic below is from March 17th, so about a month ago, yeah.) I saw these beautiful glass beads in my stash and knew I HAD to use them in something soon.

No lie!

Here’s what happened. I’m pretty much in luuurve with this piece. I used copper beads and copper/copper-plated findings with glass beads and a blue aventurine donut. I stalled on the design a few days back, but after staring at it for a while, I was able to get back to work and turn it into something amazeballs. I think I’m gonna do a two-fer again and make earrings to match this bad boy for week 11.

Pile of shiny things. Stringing it along! Close view of the focal area.
