AJE Component of the Month - February - Diana Ptaszynski

It's the end of February already, hard to believe.  Time for another Component of the Month challenge.  This month, Diana Ptaszynski made us components - it's called a Phaedra! She did such an excellent job with this, as they are very fiddly to make!

And so I'm the loser this month because I didn't have time to get mine ready.  I was away for a week from the middle of the month, and before that crazy busy with work.  Then, when I got home from my trip to St. Maarten, I got the stomach flu and was not able to complete my design.  I'm still posting today because I do have an idea.

I'm going to take my Phaedra and make it the centerpiece in between two pieces of chainmaille in the Byzantine pattern.  Here's a photo of what the Byzantine pattern looks like:

I think the pattern will go well with Diana's component.  So when I finish it, I will post back here with a photo!

Thanks for looking at my idea - please look and see what everyone else did!

The Phaedra will pair nicely with the Byzantine weave. Looking forward to seeing it!

New Enamel Beads Listed

I just listed a bunch of enameled beads in the SueBeads etsy store. I'm going to be taking a week off. I'm going to leave the shop open, so if you purchase anything from the 10th - 18th of July, they will mail on the 19th! Thanks so much for your patience!

The Tacky Earring Blog Hop

Diana Ptaszynski had a great idea, instead of a Tacky Christmas Sweater blog hop, a Tacky Holiday Earring blog hop! I was on it.  I had ideas right away.  I had so many I had to control myself.  You can buy these for $15 each, too!  Here we go!

I found these awesome wreaths in the miniature Christmas section in Michaels, and they go perfectly with silver and copper colored plastic beads!


These trees were found in Michaels, on an end-cap - I assume they are scrapbook or card making supplies, but make fantastic earrings.  The holes were a little small and far down, so I had to make LARGE loops.  Paired these with cute little gold colored jingle bells!

And, finally, the ones I had in my head the moment she announced the blog hop.  Dr. Seuss sparkly puff balls with ribbons.  The only thing that would have made these better for me is if I could have found the red ribbons I really wanted to pair these with - don't get me wrong, the silver is cool and all, but in my head they were red.
