Today is the reveal for the Creative Jewelry Challenge, hosted by Sally Russick. We were challenged to make a statement piece. I knew right away what I wanted to do. Last July, Brian (my dh) bought me some beautiful blue agate druzy beads. A strand of 20mm and a gorgeous focal. Blue is my favorite color, and I love a druzy. He thought that I could make a piece with them to put on my shop banner and business cards. Have I mentioned that he is awesome? I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with them, so they've sat and I've thought. Then I saw some pave beads in a destash group that I'm in on Facebook. Everything clicked at that point, and here is what I did:
Here is a close up of that beautiful focal. I love it. I couldn't have picked out better beads myself.
And one more shot of the necklace.
I made it long - 24 inches. I love long necklaces. I have enough of the 20mm beads to make a bracelet, and I think I will make some earrings with my leftover pave beads.
I hope you enjoyed seeing what I made, please check out the other participants and see what they did!
