Andrew Thorton's Festival of Lights Challenge

I  was so lucky to get  one of these kits.

A fabulous kit filled with wonderful colors

'Fortune Teller'
All beads are from the kit
along with brass chain and components from Vintaj.
The wonderful pendant was made by Andrew just for this challenge.
Here is a close up of the pendant

'Palm Reader'
This bracelet was made  with beads from the kit and I also added  metal, czech, glass  and copper beads along with a metal clasp.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you will visit the other participants listed below

Love the Fortune Teller necklace, especially how the brass component echoes the pendant. You made a great use of these big bold and colorful beads!

I really like your necklace, it is bold and sparkly, and the Vintaj piece compliments Andrew's pendant perfectly.

What a great set! I can just picture the gypsy with all her scarves wearing it.

Beautiful necklace and bracelet! This kit was so fun, I love seeing the different things people do with it. I love how you've used the colors and the nice echo of the "dreamcatcher" type piece with Andrew's pendant. I also love the names you gave them. Perfect!

Alison Adorns said...

Oooo I love the feeling of the fortune teller necklace! I can actually SEE the teller wearing both pieces! What a unique inspiration you got from the kit! Amazing Job. My favorite of the challenge.

Kari Asbury said...

I can close my eyes and see the gypsy fortune teller decked out in her scarves, flowing skirt and your jewelry! Fantastic set and great imagery to draw us into your creative process!

Carole said...

I agree with everyone, the theme is beautifully carried out.

Fantastic designs! I love the necklace and the mystery component works beautifully with the Vintaj elements. The bracelet definitely has the Bohemian flair. ~FUN~

Andrew Thornton said...

Oh, I like these pieces quite a lot! And I love the titles! They seem very mysterious and very apt. In the first piece I really enjoy the asymmetry and how the eye is brought back up the necklace with the filigree piece. And the bracelet has a wonderful, collected feel. Nicely done! And thank you so much for participating!

Such a bright and fun kit, and you really did it justice. The necklace is great with that Vintage piece. It almost seems to echo the pendant that Andrew made. Beautiful work.
