Heather and Lorelie's Michaels Challenge


Heather and Loreli hosted a Michaels Challenge.
These are the beads that we are to use.
Unfortunately our Michaels store was out of most of these beads. The only ones I managed to get were the last two and tried to match the others as best I could.
We could add beads from our own stash as well.
So her are the pieces I made
It seems I was in a mood for color and the tropics.

'Hot Tropics'
purple dyed quartzite beads from Michaels
Polymer flowered beads from Aquarious Too
And green glass beads form Michaels

'Gilligan's Island'
Bone Amber Beads from Michaels
tiny spacers from Michaels
Polymer drops from Chrysalis

'Bird of Paradise'
Purple, Green blue and orange beads from Michaels
Polymer Flower bead from  Aquarius Too

Be sure to check out Heather's Blog to see what everyone else made.

Love the punchy brightness of the earrings and the bracelet! It's amazing how just a few tiny tweaks to the color palette take things in a whole different direction!
