Week 14: Beetroot Purple

Took these photos ages ago but haven’t posted them for some reason. This necklace was made with silver-plated components and bright pink glass beads.

By your headpins combined... Week 14: Beetroot Purple

 

 

Week 13: Faded Rose

I finished this one last week but haven’t gotten around to posting it until now! I used an autumn jasper focal (the pink flecks match the challenge swatch!) with peridot gemstone chips; glass beads; and antiqued brass beads, chain, bells, and findings.

Laying it all out... Stringing! The Focal

Week 11: Thistle

A companion set of earrings for Week 10’s necklace! So fancy!!

Getting started... ...And done! On Black

Complete set!

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.

Shiiiiiny...

Week 8: Forever Blue

Tada! Knocked this one out in a couple of hours today. I got these glass focal pieces in a big jumble sale, and it was clearly their time to get put to use.

The raw materials. Stringing it along! A (fuzzy, sorry!) work in progress.

The end result!
