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:
