The AJE June Summertime challenge

1. Goal - Have fun! Try something different! Be inspired by any of the myriad aspects of summer! Make something that fits within this theme. This can be an artist bead, a component, or a finished piece of jewelry. There is no give away this month but you are free to use any artist bead/component in your design. 

I just love HeatherMillican'sbeads from her shop at swoondimples on etsy
I cant get enough of her beads

'Chit Chat'
focal from heather Millican
spacers from the spacer bead shop
 Vintaj components

Love is all that matters
I love this bead It spins

My office faces two big windows
every day I see lots of birds
some come right up to the window and peak in
it's a fun way to start the day

Thanks for stopping by.
To see more go to the AJE blog
June 30
soon it will be summer
and I just had to show you my lilies

Birds in summer are like kids during summer vacation - free before autumn strikes with the obligations of life :) I like this take on the summer theme and the necklaces are beautiful. "Chit Chat" is a fabulous idea!

Jenny said...

Fun pieces! I like the spinner bead in the second necklace - that would be great to wear and fidget with!
Thanks for joining us! Any particular birds that visit you that are your favorites?

I just love how reading other's memories spark out own. I have very noisy birds who start before dawn in the spring so your chit chat necklace is so perfect.

Ohh, how pretty they are. I love swoondimples beads! And that one that spins is so cute! Great job.

Caroline said...

Gorgeous designs! And those beads are fabulous, I love the way you've stacked them.

Tammy Adams said...

What lovely necklaces. I have a small hoard of Heather's word beads too. They are somewhat addictive.

Ann Schroeder said...

Both of those necklaces are great. I love hearing birds in the summer. It's one of my favorite things to sit outside and listen to the birds chit chatting as your first bead is called.

I love them! I have been looking for a pendant with 3 birds so I went and sadly she doesnt have any right now but I love what you created. I also think the spinner one is so much fun.
