Rondelles Challenge

I am going to work with my man today, but wanted to show you what's new in the SueBeads shop! Rondelles! They aren't the same as the other ones I loved so much, and don't have any more of, and can't find any more of! But they are cool just the same. I made earrings from them - what do you think you would do with them? Want to show me? I will pick 5 people to participate in a challenge! You will receive a pair of these rondelle beads and we'll have a blog hop to see what you made!

Just comment on this post by Wednesday evening at 8 pm. I'll choose 5 random people to receive a random pair of these rondelles! We'll do a little blog hop on May 26th! That should give everyone enough time to get something done, especially if you are participating in other hops!

Well it would just be rude not to volunteer wouldn't it.
Love those colours - please put my name in the hat Sue.

I think they are very cool, almost a sea urchin look because of the almost bubbly texture. You know I'd love to play!

Me Me Me :) I would love to play!! Been admiring your enamel beads in your store and would love to see them (and play with them) in person. I need a new summer bracelet, so that is what I would make with them!
Shirley said…
Oh, jumping up and down, pick me, pick me! :) I so love your enameled beads. And the colors you chose are wonderful. I can already think of a couple of things I would do, so a resounding YES!

I think the new ones look great!
Katie said…
I think I'd do earrings, too, but I'd like to play with them a little too - maybe cute little danglies hanging from the rondelle to make it look like cute little ear lamps :o)
Beautiful beads! I'd love a chance to try them. Thanks so much for the entry.

OOH! I love these colors and their lacy little edges. I think that their squishy shape is more appealing to me than rounds. I have been on a bangle kick and I think that this might be just the thing to add to the stack that I have been amassing. You do such lovely work Miss Sue! I look forward to seeing what someone does with these beauties. Enjoy the day. Erin

I love them and would love a chance to be part of your challenge. I'm not sure what I'd do with them yet, but am already brainstorming ideas. Thanks for the opportunity.

Cool rondelles! I'd love a chance to design something with these. Please put my name in the pot!
I would love to play :-) Thanks for the chance.

Hey, what up with the comments? Is your comment acceptor working? Or whatever it's called. I left a comment last night. Would love a chance to try something with rondelles. I figured the competition would be fierce, but when I checked back....0 comments.
Hmmm. Not even mine. Also, if no one responds maybe I'll get to be the randomly selected one!
I know I'm not alone in wanting to play with these fun shapes........

I want to play! I haven't made anything new in ages and would love to get motivated. :)

Oh, hey, these are totally *my* colors! I'd love to win and participate! Thanks for offering these lovelies up :)

Happy Accident!

Months ago, I took a class at ArtBliss given by Barbara Lewis of Painting with Fire. It involved learning how to make torch-fired enamel beads. I loved it - as you may be able to guess. Barbara did teach us how to fuse items into a flat pendant, but we didn't spend a lot of time on that process, as the day seemed to go so fast! I was making enameled pieces the other night, and due to my own ineptness (remember the big toe burn???) I was able to fuse these two pieces together totally by accident. Now of course, it isn't a usable piece. However, now that I know how to do it, I can see some pieces like this in my future! I can't wait to get more copper cutouts!

Art Elements February Theme Challenge - Birds of Prey

Cathy Mendola chose Birds of Prey for the theme this month, and it's a pretty awesome theme. You are going to see some amazing work by my team members and the guests who have participated this month! I had plans of doing more than I did, as indicated by the purchases I made for the projects I had in my head. However, I have been doing some work in my house, so whenever time permitted, meaning after work and weekend hours, we were pretty much doing the room renovations. One of them is going to be my study/studio, and I seem to be foiled at every move by trying to get some work tables. So I have only one small project to show you this month.  But first, the purchases!

This first Bali carved owl totem I got from fifirosedesigns on etsy - I wanted to make a mold and make my own cabochon to use in a necklace. However, I really did get around to doing that. So, I purchased the owl heads below.

These owl head cabochons are from ArtisticVariations84 on etsy - they are just fantastic, but …

October Art Elements Theme Challenge - Petroglyphs

I'm afraid I just didn't have the time to participate in last months theme, which was faerie. This month the theme is petroglyphs hosted by Karen Totten. Since I'm spending 10 days in Iceland this month, I really didn't get to spend any extended amount of time on the theme, but I did find these AWESOME petroglyph earring charms by Jill of Foxpaws on etsy! I highly recommend checking out her shop - every package you get is a gift in itself - TRUST ME!

SO here are the earrings I made!

I hope you also visit all the other participants! I'm sure there will be some awesome creations!
