AJE Compoment of the Month Reveal - MOI!!!

Over at Art Jewelry Elements, we have a monthly challenge called Component of the Month.  This month it was my turn to provide the component!  You had your choice of either a trio of chicklet beads, or a pressed cabochon.  Most took chicklets, but some picked cabs.



Here's what I made with a trio I made for myself!  I had to hold back showing it for Diana's waxed linen cord blog hop!


I used a trio of pressed flower beads I made for myself, and indonesian glass seed beads in matching colors!  I used a really pretty butterscotch waxed linen cord, thai silver bead caps and a pretty flower shank button as the closure!  I love using waxed linen and will be making more designs, hopefully for sale at Bead Fest!

Please join in the hop to see what everyone else made with my beads!

That bracelet is GORGEOUS Sue, I love it! I love those earthy, matte finish beads with your tablets, and the three strands really set off the lampwork. Beautiful!

So sad I missed this! I would have happily purchased chicklets and joined in! Such beautiful new beads, Sue. As always, you create gorgeousness wherever you go!

Stunning bracelet, too! Loving that waxed linen chic -- perfect for your earthy seed beads and wonderful handcrafted lampwork trio of blooms!

This is a perfect pairing, Sue! Indonesian glass is one of my favourite components, and the rougher texture looks great with your exquisite little lampies :)
