Last fall Lisa Lodge asked if anyone wanted to participate in a challenge. I quickly signed up because it was a forest theme, and I do love forests.
We were sent a collection of beads that fit the theme, and could also use beads from our stash.
Here are the beads I received. I'm a big fan of green!
Polymer Driftwood Shards from Scorched Earth
Green and Brown lampwork beads from Lisa Anderson included in the kit.
'Above the Forest Trees'
Green drops from the kit
'Springtime in the Forest'
A ceramic focal bead from Blueberri Beads from my stash
Most of the glass beads from the kit
And of course Vintaj chain.
The necklace is very long and slips over the head.
Thanks to Lisa for organizing this challenge and for the wonderful beads, and to Lisa Anderson for the gorgeous lampwork beads.
I didn't get to use all the beads but I really enjoyed playing along.Check out the links below to see what the other participants made with their kits.
