To fill up this cool new display piece:
It is an old handmade case that used to hold sewing supplies. I have re-vamped it to hold earrings and the like:)

First, a necklace, of course! I used the large ring, inserted a button, then hung the gorgeous bird from it:
Second (and favorite) pair:
I had to get out some seed beads for the third pair:
The double-hole beads were a bit of a challenge, but I managed to pull these out:
Finally, a full shot of the necklace:
Here is a list of the other participants...be sure to check out what they made!!

Reveal day! You can see what I received from my partner here!
This is the lovely focal that my partner, Kristi Brokaw made.....all dolled up with some fun fringe.
And a shot of the entire necklace:
I had to put the matching clasp on the side. It is so lovely that I didn't want to hide it in the back!
I used the Amethyst and the gorgeous peals for the back and down the sides:
It's very photogenic, right?
I don't usually love purple, I tend to go more towards the blues/greens. But I really love the gold and purple combo I was sent. This piece went together easily..it flowed without any second-guessing about what it wanted to be.
Now that you have seen my creation, please go check out some of the other participants! Here's a link!
