I'm Here, I'm Here, I'm Here..said the Who's to Horton....
Ok, so I am late, but I made it.
Again I took part in a fabulous bead challenge hosted by Lisa at Pine Ridge Treasures.
We have had the beads since before Christmas..you would think I would have had the necklace and earrings done and posted...but...what can I say. So onward...
Below is what Lisa sent me for the challenge:
And they sat on my desk all through the holidays waiting for me to make up my mind on what I wanted to do. So I got out my color wheel and played with different combinations since I wanted some color besides green and white.
So this is what I came up with:
It is kind of hard to see, but the crystals in the first row have purple in them so I added purple seed pearls, with some lavender stone beads on the end. In the second row I used orange Swarovski crystals to pick up the orange of the stone beads in the first row. Then the third row I used the orange and purple beads along with the green beads and white pearl beads. The earrings are three sections hooked together using the same beads, though I did leave out the purple in case one would want to wear the earrings with something else green and white.
I have an idea for the grayish/green stones that are left and hope to get them up soon. I am a tax preparer so right now I am really, really busy!

Til next time
Keep on beading!
