Gentle Hues Challenge - November 2015

Today is the revel for Lisa Lodges Gentle Hues Challenge. When I first received the beads, I thought wow, how springy they look. How can I come up with something fall like. Below is what I received.

The purple and pink beads in the bag, I am going to do bead weaving with. I have the pattern, but didn't get it finished. The rest of the stash were beautiful pearls. I used almost all of them.  

Since I couldn't do anything fall, I decided to do something using all the colors as I have a friend that is into pastels and pearls. So this is what I created.

You can't see it well in this picture, but I used crystals between the pearls. The pattern I came up with is in the center of each strand there are 5 pearls of one color, then as you progress outward, the colors slowly change to the opposite color. So on the first strand with the bigger pearls, in the middle is white on the left and lavender on the right, but by the time you get to the back,  it is lavender on the right and white on the left. Talk about having to focus!

Here is a close up of the earrings, and in the picture you can see some of the crystals that I used.

Thanks for stopping by and viewing my piece. Come back on the 21st and I will have a new challenge posted.

Til then...

Keep on Beading
