Hello Everyone, I am doing some new challenges this year to stretch my artistic and creative side; with new months challenges, new inspirations, meeting new artists and designers. I love learning new techniques and new inspirations. My friend Gloria Allen from Gloria Allen Designs has invited me to join her with Andrew Thornton and Allegory Gallery Design Challenges I love the set of beads he sends and yes there are more seed beads and tiny tiny beads, which if you know anything about me that is a challenge in itself. Read more About me.
So as usually I don’t just go for one thing, I go with both feet in and take on more. I have a great passion for art and the art of making jewelry So I didn’t Just enter one of the Tribes Challenges I entered 2 of them. Petals is my first show case and Nomad is my second show case I will share.
This is what I received for the Petal Challenge
We could use as much of the kit as we wanted. So I first sorted everything and fell in love with several of the beads. I love pink so that part was easy. Was not sure what to do with the wax linen cord as I have never used it. Then there were those seed beads. Again I don’t usually have these as a go to bead in my stash. But was going to learn how to use them. At this point I was very glad I had attended B’Sue Boutiques Workshop in May as I learned how to wire bead the Miriam Haskell style with seed beads.
This is what made from the Petal Kit:
Several earrings with some of my stash included.
Then made a bracelet set using some vintage rose beads.
