Sweet Honey Challenge reveal

Howdy folks!

In between a long vacation and a horrible allergy attack I was able to create these 2 pieces with my kit (much more still in progress on bead desk grrrrr)

I am going to seriously lock myself in my apartment for a whole weekend and have a "what's left from all of my kits" creativity session.

My photos are not the best (we are back to the lovely Pacific Northwest "Grey" for weather.

With Andrew's focal, I created a light, delicate piece. I wanted the attention to go to the focal. I used one of my vintage buttons for the clasp along with some vintage brass filigree beads.

I used the amber chips and citrine nuggets to create this necklace along with a Green Girl Studios fox pedant.

I will come back and post the rest of my goodies once they are done today or tomorrow. I have to say the bees in North Carolina are HUGE. There was this one that kept teasing my friend's dog. The bees seemed friendly enough and curious about us (and about the size of my thumb!)

I am not sure if you can see the bee in this picture, he is on the left just above the rock wall.

Here are a few more pieces I finished today:

A coiled seed bead bangle with leather cord and an antique glass button:

A rosary chain style necklace with a bee connector and matching earrings:

And here is the list of all the lovely people who participated in the challenge:


  1. Lovely necklaces, I love the second one with the mix of stones and metal and the beautiful colors you combined.

  2. Your necklaces are lovely. The simplicity of the first one really lets the mystery component shine (and I love the bee on it). I'm especially fond of the ombre look you got in the second necklace. Great!

  3. Great job on both! I love the colors of the fox necklace, it definitely reminds me of a red fox!

  4. Beautiful necklaces, love how light and airy the first one is.

  5. Cool Pieces, but the Fox is my Fav, luv the chunkiness.

  6. I'm glad that I'm a little late hopping or I would have missed some of your designs! I really like that coiled bracelet... and the rosary style necklace is totally my style. I know what you mean about needing time to finish up with design kits... I still have some things pulled together from the Royal Feather kit!

  7. Wow-wee! You made so many lovely things with the kit! Great job! In the first one, I love the simple elegance. It has a summery, beachy vibe and would look great alone or layered with other pieces! I love the umbra effect of the second necklace and it's nice to see the addition of some of my sister's work too! The color of the bronze really shines! The bracelet is just sweet with the warm honey colors and beaded texture. And the matching set has a great, vintage feel. You've really outdone yourself! Thanks again for participating!
