This month I chose some matte lucite flowers in jewel tones -- ruby red, Montana blue, and emerald green and a gorgeous brass toggle. My idea was to create a lush charm bracelet (probably my favorite thing to make) using chain and cultured pearls I had in my stash. I added some pretty little bits of gold to the mix, turned on an episode of "The Office", and away I went!
Each link holds two flower components, and the chain's links are about 6mm or so in diameter, to give you an idea of proportion. I ordered ten of each color flower and had a few left over for earrings.
I also nabbed a few of Swarovski's interesting departure from crystal -- Swarovski Ceramics. These are 10mm rounds in Marbled Blue (and hurry and click here, they're on sale!). I made a pair of chandelier earrings with them....
... and then tried them out just with some cool pewter findings.
I have one more pair of earrings I made with some cool aluminum chain, but for the life of me, I can't find them ANYWHERE. I'm blaming a cat. Or a kidlet. But when I find them, I'll show you.
Thank you VERY much to Beadaholique for including me in their program!
