Heather Powers, from Humblebeads, is having a week long challenge called "Fun With Focals." She is giving away a gift certificate to Humblebeads and a subscription to Stringing Magazine! Each day requires a different task; above is my entry for Day 1, which was creating a horizontal focal. The necklace focal is made from my Champagne Tundra swirl beads and my own handmade beaded bead in copper lined blue. The chain is copper as well - they all go together very well!
I have some other ideas for Days 2 and 3, but have to wait for some supplies to arrive in the mail - UGGHH! I hate that! I wish there was a really good store here where you could buy everything you needed for all your ideas!
