Lorelei's Stinky Dog Challenge


I'm so excited for Lorelei's Stinky Dog Challenge!
Above is the kit we purchase, and of course I just had to add a few extras in my cart.

'Uncharted Island'
I used the Mykonos cones from the kit along with orange drops from Scorched Earth
Turquoise Magnesite beads, Czech Cathedral beads from Stinky Dog Beads and brass earwires.

'Lazy Days of Summer'
Mykonos Leaf Charms from the kit, coral Swarovski Pearls, blue lampwork spacers from Marshall Jodie,
yellow czech beads from Arte Bella Surpluss and brass earwires. 

'Bora Bora'
Blue Luster English Cut Beads from the kit, Myknons Cast sanddollar I just had to have,
Aquamarine stones and a brass chain and clasp

'Off the Trail'
More of the darling leaf charms, green lampwork beads from Dancing Frog,
Orange spacers form Marshall Jodie, and tiny picasso glass beads added to my cart, and of course, brass earwires

'Hollywood Glam'
Silver circle from the kit along with wrapped chain beads from a Cousin giveaway I won recently, Czech 10mm Jet Cut Nuggets and sterling chain.

I ran out of time to use the entire kit but I'll get around to them.
Thanks to Lorelei for hosting this challenge and also to Stinky Dog Beads!  What a fun name and a great site to shop.

Wow, so beautiful. I really enjoyed all your pieces. It's funny, I have all the components of that first pair of earrings in my stash, too.

All lovely and so colorful! I love the first pair of earrings - those Czech cathedral beads are gorgeous. I like how you used the kit along with your own beads to make each piece unique and interesting. Nicely done!

Beautiful pieces - I love the hollywood glam necklace - makes a statement but won't weigh your neck down :-)

Alice, those mango highlights make me happy! I love your designs :) When Lorelei announced this challenge, I went to the site right away, I even had a kit in my shopping cart. The sober reality is: some packages take close to a month to reach me in Canada from the U.S., leaving me little time to enjoy creating on a deadline. So I decided to enjoy the beads from the spectator's viewpoint :)

Alice - kaboom! Love the bright colors in your earrings. The Hollywood Glam necklace I'm particularly drawn to. The Mykonos components are wonderful aren't they?

I LOVE your colour choices! I never thought to piput bright oranges and yellows with the subdued tones of the components but it really lifts evrything.
