Today I am participating in the Winter Sparkle blog hop hosted by Lisa at Pine Ridge Treasures.
Let me show you what Lisa sent me to work with:
That is a lot of beads. Great colors, and exactly what I would associate with winter sparkle. I have to be honest. I live in Wisconsin, and we have had a very cold winter and quite enough snow now thank you very much. So I had a bit of a hard time thinking about winter in a good way. But I really liked those beads, so that helped a lot. I created a bracelet, using all the leaves, a lot of the crystals and the metal cylinders. I tied the beads onto the chain with c-Lon cord to add a bit of texture.
Sherri Stokey has several great classes on CraftArtEdu. That is where I learned how to do all the techniques I used in this bracelet (on Sunday - procrastination is my friend).
I hope you like what I made, please go and see what the other participants did with their beads!
