I received my challenge inspiration from Fusion Beads.com. In March, they had a 30 day jewelry challenge. Some of it, just didn't appeal to me. So I took 30-something pieces of paper and wrote different things on them to create. Or ideas for a project. (for example: make a necklace, use up left over beads, make a badge lanyard, use a problem pendant, ect...) I did put in 4 of the same peices of paper for: Make a necklace, make earrings, make bracelet. The "basics" of jewelry.
Also, any sales for this month, all profits will go to my Relay For Life fundraising.
30 ITEMS - 30 DAYS CHALLENGE
Item 1 -- Earth-tone Lampwork Donut Pendant with Messy Wrapped Bail on a Beaded Chain
Lampwork donut focal bead made by local artist, copper wire, beading wire, copper crimp beads, copper jump rings, copper clasp.
1. New item listed
2. Start of my CHALLENGE.
This necklace was made before the holidays. I made two other similar necklaces and they both have sold: one at a craft show and another on my Etsy Shop. I especially love the pendant made by local artist Sarah Fisher. The iridescent earth tones are so beautiful! The seed bead mix complements the pendant perfectly. I had fun with the free-form nature of the messy wrapped bail. Necklace is 18 inches long with a 2 inch pendant drop.
That is the start of the challenge. Anything you would like to see? Any other information I should add?
Have a great weekend!
