Micheal’s beading Challenge Blog Hop

When, I seen that Heather Powers and Lorelei Eurto were having a beading challenge using beads that just so happened to be 40% off at Micheal’s…I had to get in on that sweet action!

You could only use the 7 beads they selected from Micheal’s plus two other bead types and your choice of pendant. When I create a piece, I really have to connect with the beads. So, I spend a lot of time just look at them…sketching out ideas before I every get busy with them.  I knew for the pendant, I wanted to use one of the recycled game piece pendants that I make. As, luck had it I had one in my stash that was perfect with the colors.

Here is what I came up with: A breathe of glamour

Of course, I need a sweet little part of earrings to go with this necklace too!


Thanks for checking out my pieces. I can’t wait to see what everyone else has made!
