I made some earrings to match! I love how long they are and how much the beautiful handmade beaded beads that Lori Finney sent me sparkle at every turn! I have never worked with beaded beads, and these were an amazing place to start!
Here's a closeup so you can see the complexity of them. Lori made these herself! What a talent she has!! Find Lori's blog Here!!
Here is the dreamy set all together! Since I don't normally work with anything in silver/silvertones any more, I may have to keep this set! So pretty!
Here is what I made with the clasp. Just a simple but fun wire wrapped bracelet. Everything in this bracelet including the wire was sent by my partner. If you look carefully, you will see that the clasp has writing on it! Very cool!
I started by making these earrings first. These were the first things in the soup that really spoke to me! They just spoke earrings! Love the bell like quality of them and they match the bracelet!
I could not resist attempting some asymmetrical earrings with these beads. They also match the bracelet. I love the way these all sparkle! I am only guessing, but I believe that these are also some of Lori's beaded beads :)
I still have a few beads left and I think I have an idea on how to use them. We will see what I can whip up!
I was issued a challenge on using the pretty squares of fabric that all these beads came wrapped in, but I unfortunately ran out of time. I was also a little stumped! I brainstormed and still could not think of a way to use it that would not be sewn since I can't sew! Hopefully in time I will think of something!
Please visit Lori's blog to see the complete list of participants! I normally add it onto the end of my post, but with all the photos I thought this post was long enough! lol
