Challenge - What do I do with those?


I have wanted to have a challenge of my own for quite some time. I am smitten with these little charms that I have been enameling, and decided they would be great for a challenge. Therefore, I would like to offer you, my readers, a little opportunity. Leave a comment on this blog post if you'd like to receive a set of 10 of these little charms. I will choose three people randomly to participate. If you are chosen, I will mail you a set of charms, my color choice, and ask that you complete your design in a few weeks' time (how about by June 25th) and have a blog reveal on that date! I will publish the list of participants and link to their blogs. I'll pick names on June 1st! I will choose the participants the old fashioned way - I'll write your name on a piece of paper and fold it up and let my son pick! Therefore, you can get extra entries by blogging or sharing on facebook; just let me know you did that in a separate comment and give me the link.

Those look fun, and I think I already have an idea for them :)Thanks for the giveaway!!
I shared your giveaway on Facebook...about 12 times! lol. I couldn't get the link to post, then the post showed up 12 times. I'm sure that will get me blocked by a few people...

I love these -- beautifully made, and nice cool colors! And I love challenges; when my mojo goes a'wandering away, a good challenge always brings it back home. So count me in; in any case I can't wait to see what you make with them!
I have not seen these in your shop before. Probably because I spend too much time looking at the glass which I ador. I have the time to join in. I am already putting my thinking cap on in case I get lucky.

Bead Soup Blog Party!

Welcome to the 3rd Bead Soup Blog Party! What is a Bead Soup Blog Party? Each beader was paired up with another jewelry designer and tasked with sending the following: ~ A focal ~ A special clasp (not just a lobster claw) ~ Some coordinating spacers or beads Using the focal and the clasp was mandatory, but we could use anything from our own stash to round out the rest, and choose to use the coordinating beads or not. You may recall my partner was Margot Potter ; click this link to see the blog post I wrote of what she sent me! Here's what I made! Dangly earrings! Come see what the rest of us made! 1. Lori Anderson, Pretty Things 2. Kitty Durmaj, Perles and Life 3. Michelle Heim, Life In the Bead Lane 4. Lisa Petrillo, Lucid Moon Studio 5. Anitra Gordy, Leelu Creations 6.

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 w

Bead Soup Blog Party!

Today is the day of the big Bead Soup Blog Party reveal! Lori Anderson, the wonderful host of this event, reported that there are 362 participants this year! That's a lot of blogs to look at. I will try my best to get to each and every one, but it may take weeks! My partner was Laura Zeiner from Stick Lizard Designs . She has a lot of talent, that girl. If you recall in my previous post , she sent me these beads: And this is what I made: I love love love the focal she sent me. It's gorgeous! The lack of sun here in Pittsburgh does nothing for this rock! The colors and crystals are beautiful! I had no idea what to do with it, though, and I pondered for quite a while. I decided to make links with 18 gauge copper wire and think I did an ok job at it. I'm sure there are some better ways to do this, and I'd love to hear about them. I'm just really starting to get into the world of wire and so my skills aren't that great. In any event, I made some beady links
