Colors of Spring-Cockatoo
Today is the reveal day for Sally Russick's 'Colors of Spring' challenge. I chose Cockatoo. Our only requirement was to use the focal for the challenge. I received these lovely beads made by Sally.
This first piece is made with Sally's focal, along with a patinated metal focal component from Staci Louise, and Vintaj chain. I cheated and used the vintaj tin to represent the rest of the colors of the challenge. But sometimes I just love a simple piece.
This piece does not have any of Sally's beads in it but the colors fit the challenge. It includes Vintaj components, a sweet flowered polymer clay round from Too Aquarius, Czech beads from Lima Beads, coral Swarovski Pearls, and tiny lampwork spacers.
I had a design idea to use the white beads, along with an Industrial Chic focal, tangerine colored lampwork spacers, another flowered polymer clay bead from Too Aquarius (because I just love them) and vintaj components. Time got away from me and I didn't get to finish this one for the reveal.
Thanks, Sally for a fun challenge! Be sure to check out what the other participants created.
