14th Non-Blogger/Blogger Challenge -Twice as Nice Holiday in July
Hosted by Toltec Jewels
Above are the pictures we used for inspiration i the 14th Non-blogger/blogger Challenge. i couldn't decide which to do so I did several pieces....
First: The Sparkle Picture with the aqua and silver colors.
This one is crocheted using white yarn embedded with silver, though it is hard to see. I then used aqua acrylic beads from a vintage necklace that was broken and sitting in my "junk" bead drawer. On the beads hanging around the edge I have little silver "grapes" The back is closed ribbons endings and a chain with a lobster claw. I like this pattern and am doing it up in several colors including neon!
This is just a simple set made with aqua, and varying shades of greens. I just like how they all seem to get along...They are strung on goldtone wire and I used goldtone findings. It will soon find it's way to my Etsy shop!
Second: Woodland Creatures using Christmas colors
This one I made for a friend, the colors are soooo Christmas with reds, greens, and golds. I truly enjoyed doing this piece...the beads just seem to come together all on their own...I know my friend will be happy I am finished with it and can get it mailed to her.
Thanks for looking. For more great pieces, check out Our Pinterest board after August 24.
