Frenzied Motion Challenge - Reveal also with finished goodies from the last challenge

Ok so here are my creations for the Frenzied Motion Challenge (a day late, shame on me)

I was all over the place as far as pink is scary!

Thankfully I had this lovely butterfly pendant in my stash

Also while digging through said stash, I found an unopened box "The Coiling Gizmo". Had no idea when or why I got it. OMG Why have I not played with it before now I don't know. The thing is awesome.

I coiled up the seed bead mix, strung the coil on brown greek leather and used a vintage button for a clasp. Easy breezy

I loved this single crystal point, accented it with the swarovski crystals, also from the mix

I made a trio of memory wire bangles (also playing with memory wire for the first time, loving it!

I love how each challenge has me trying different methods!

And here are a few more pieces from the Desert Sands Challenge

Desert Sunset (owl by Laura Mears)

I finished a pair of earrings, started a pendant (ran out of chain for it)

That's all for now folks!

Up next will be the Sweet Honey Challenge

Be sure to visit all of the other great artists that participated in the Challenge!

  1. Oh my gosh! Your pieces are amazing! That butterfly could not be more perfect, and I love how you coiled the seed beads and added leather to highlight the mystery component. It all looks wonderful. Then the quartz point and the bangles! Fabulous. I also like the additional pieces from Desert Sands. You've really been working!

  2. Great Job! I love the Coiling Gizmo necklace, how fun it looks to make and wear! I think it's awesome that so many people try new things with these types of challenges, your memory wire bracelets turned out fab!
