Choosy Chicks Choose Chicklets Blog Hop!

The amazingly talented and incredibly kind Rita of Toltec Jewels (for Jewel School Friends) is hosting a blog hop today using none other than my flower chicklet beads!  I am very excited to see what you all made with the beads!  Here are some things I have made with them, some are repeats from yesterday and some are not.




I want to thank Rita for contacting me about this blog hop- she constantly surprises me with the variety and skill with which she makes jewelry, and her constant support and enthusiasm for bead artists and jewelry designers is amazing!  Please check out what everyone else made with their chicklet beads!

Just so you know, I will be visiting each and every one of your blogs, but I have two other blog hops to visit as well, so please be patient with me!  I appreciate all of you!

www get to see what can be made when one has an unlimited supply of chicklets. They make great earrings. Every color is gorgeous. I also want to thank you for your considerate kindness in offering to replace the, fortunately, only misplaced chicklet

Tammy Adams said...

Beautiful designs. The first bracelet is my favorite, but I love those dangly earrings quite a bit too. Your beads are spectacular. I hope you like what I did with mine.

Hi Sue,
I love your glass beads they are all so pretty. My favorite is the pink, green, and yellow bracelet you did for another challenge.

I absolutely love each piece, the earrings are so gorgeous with the waxed linen, as I said before I need to get some more chicklets. You have turned little pieces of art into exceptional pieces of creativity.

Alice said...

Your chicklet beads are just darling! I can see no end of the designs one could make with these.
Your pieces are just wonderful!!!

Tanya McGuire said...

Sue these were lovely little beads to design with. Thank you so much for working with Rita on this.

windbent said...

Thank you so much for making such a lovely bead to work with.

Kari Asbury said...

Beautiful designs, as always! Thanks so much for creating such wonderful beads, in general and especially for these delightful chicklets! I made many designs with them and still have so many more waiting to be completed :)

Shaiha said...

Just gorgeous! I love the earrings especially as I haven't seen them used as such and they are so perfect for it.

RanaLea said...

Thank you for making the beads! They're so much fun! I love the earrings you made. So pretty!

Liz said...

Hannah Trost said...

love love LOVE both pairs of earrings! the beads are so lovely - very nice design!

lindalandig said...

Sue-
I love your chicklet beads and I had so much fun making another bracelet with one. I really like the earrings you made and making a pair where the hole runs vertically is brilliant. Great work!

Shirley Moore said...

Huge thank you Sue, for creating such a great bead. It was truly a pleasure to work with, and I hope you like what I made with it!
Thanks again dear!!

Nan Smith said...

I love both of your bracelets and earrings but you did have the advantage of many beads to use. The challenge for most of us was having only one bead to feature. However it was a great, fun challenge and I love your beads!

Sharyl said...

Sue, I love the jewelry you made just as much as I love your beads! I'm so glad you created these fun beads and that Rita hosted the blog hop. I had a grand time with this one! ~Sharyl

Jen Ren said...

I had a great time working with the chicklet for this hop Sue. The bracelet you made is perfect for autumn, and it's so soft and elegant looking. I hope you enjoyed seeing what everyone created with your awesome beads!

Carol Briody said...

Hi Sue, Your Chicklet beads are very cool. I like all of the pieces that you made with them. For some reason I don't think of earrings first when I do a challenge but the cute pairs that you made are making me think of them now.

Dini Bruinsma said...

You made 'us' some ♥great beads, to create with! I love your playful designs and jewellery. Aren't you living in a 'candy store', with all those beauties around you? Must be great!
