Lesley Watt and Caroline Dewison offered up their wonderful creations for an Autumn Design Challenge. I was one of the lucky ones to be included.
Below are the beads I received
'Under the Oak Tree'
Here I used the curved focal along with the copper bead, the light brown ceramic bead and the green ceramic bead. Also included from my stash are a brown- green opal bead on the upper left, two Sage Frost Czech beads, a yellow/green Soocho Jade bead on the right, a faceted bronze colored bead and Vintaj components
'A Vintage Christmas'
Included are the snowflake focal, and from my stash a Sage Frost Czech Bead and a copper chain. No clasp needed with the long chain.
'Hope is the thing that Anchors the Soul'
Included is the pale green ceramic bead, and from my stash, a blue-green lampwork bead, artist unknown, a small ceramic bead from Eclectic Prairie, a copper I.D. bracelet blank from Vintaj which I embossed with the Moroccan Tile Deco Emboss for the Big Kick and painted with a mix of green and blue Ranger Patinas, and Vintaj components including a 'Hope' Affirmation Ring.
I ran out of time to use the ceramic focal, I'm sorry to say, but I hope to have something made soon.
A huge thanks to both Caroline and Lesley for hosting this blog hop and for sharing their wonderful beads with us.
