Stinky Dog Bead Challenge Reveal!!

Reveal Day!

First, a necklace, of course!  I used the large ring, inserted a button, then hung the gorgeous bird from it:


After I finished the necklace, I went on an earring-making binge:).

First pair:

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:

Bead Soup Blog Party Reveal!

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:




Matching earrings:)


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!
