Waxed Linen Cord Blog Hop!

My friend and fellow Art Jewelry Elements member, Diana Ptaszynski, is hosting today's Waxed Linen Cord Blog Hop!  A big thank you to Diana, as this is a really big job!  I was excited to join in, I have been making some new chicklet beads recently and wanted to show off some ways you can use them!

 I used a pretty spicy orange color of waxed linen cord, and a great button I got from someone on etsy who I will have to find again because I love his buttons!  I used indonesian glass in between my flower chicklet beads.  And finally, some silver accent beads I picked up at a bead show here last year! 
To finish the bracelet off, I used two indonesian glass triangle beads!

And then, to be annoying and over-achieverish, I made these earrings.  I used salmon cord, copper accent beads, my chicklet beads in a different orientation, and mustard colored seed beads!  I also used the new shape feature on Picmonkey!

Please check out what everyone else made in the blog hop by visiting the links below!

Hi Sue, Your flower chicklet beads are way cool. They look great in your bracelet and earrings. You chose the perfect accents to showcase your lovely beads.

Really pretty summer designs Sue - very wearable too.

Perfect fun colors for summer. I love the chiclet beads!

Fab designs! I seriously love your chiclet beads. I must get some next month. Gorgeous colours, they work really well with the salmon.

Sarajo Wentling said...

What a fun and happy bracelet and earrings! I love those little chicklet beads. That button is so great... I hope you share if you track down who the maker was.

Diana P. said...

Those are seriously my most favorite beads you have ever made. You can do no wrong with them! Hehehe, I've been planning to use waxed linen with mine as well. I think they were just made to go together! Thanks for participating!

Lori Bowring Michaud said...

Sweet, colorful and ready for summer! Your chicklet beads are adorable!

Erin Siegel said...

Hi Sue! Super cute bracelet and earring set. Your flower chicklet beads are so awesome.

Silver Parrot said...

Lovely designs, Sue. That bracelet really shows off your glass beads so well. And I agree about that button...it's darling and I want to know where you got it, too!

Janet Bocciardi said...

Those beads seemed to be made for linen! Really love your bracelets!

KelsyC said...

Love the colors you picked. The clasp on the bracelet is so pretty!

Shaiha said...

I just love both designs! I have had the fun of playing with your new beads and they are so great.

Kari Asbury said...

Love your designs! I used a pair of your chicklets in one of my designs too...but I'm hoarding the rest for other things. ;)

kmorgan said...

So very pretty & so summer-y feeling! I really like the colors you incorporated & love the button! The earrings look like they will be fun to wear! :)

Johana Nunez said...

Hi Sue!! I like your colors and specially the waxed linen cord color. And your earrings are gorgeous!! :)

I seriously love your chicklet beads and so seeing a whole bracelet of them is wonderful! The two silver beads add just the right touch of contrast. Flipping the beads on their sides in the earrings is brilliant. I may have to do that with one of the chicklets for the AJE Component of the Month blog hop! Great designs!

Love the bracelet and the riot of color in there. But my mind is in the gutter right now after a nice drink and posting pics of tent rocks where i went hiking today, and discussing them with very close friends (pls google it!) and all i am registering is..I love his buttons :P I'll come back when the mind is in a civil place :P
