Andrew's October Challenge

Andrew Thornton has a monthly challenge where you purchase a kit, with some special ingredients, and then on the appointed day reveal what you made with your kit! Today is the day! I have to say I am very happy to even have these done, because my head has been trying to get a full-on migraine for days...This is a necklace I made with his special skull bead and some really cool ball chain he sent with the kit! I decided the ball chain and skull needed to be kept separate and together; it's a great necklace and my daughter will be receiving it!
Then I made a bracelet with the three bigger beads he sent and the glass headpin that was in the kit! I used two types of chain and the gorgeous gorgeous little variety of seed beads he sent. I love them! I wish I could bead weave, they are such great little beads!
Then I made this pair of earrings with the pretty luxury beads he sent, and my own ear wires! These pieces came together easily for me, and I'm glad I got the pieces done!
Here are the other participants!

Love what you did. By the way, I just love the enamel headpins I purchased from your shop. Can't wait to incorporate them into my poly clay beads and into my jewelry.

Very pretty! My favorite is the sweet little bracelet. I could not for the life of me figure out how to use the chain....

I love the designs you came up with, especially using the glass headpin as a charm on the bracelet, great idea!

Very pretty! I'm so impressed you used so much of your kit! I am hoping to get a chance to do some bead embroidery with the rest of my kit materials.
