Michaels Challenge Reveal

ICED BERRIES

The 3rd Challenged for Michaels and it seems to be the Winter Edition. I named my piece due to my picture below (previous post). It took me so long to finally get this piece made. I started with actually making a double chain assemble but did not like it. The pendant did not quite turn out as I had planned...PRACTICE need more PREACTICE but nevertheless I'm happy with the end result. I know what to do next time.


The pendant is a cut out from the my previous post. I added the red czech to reflect the frozen berries and the rock (quartz) crystal I just wanted to add it. I substituted the faceted MOP bead with the open black MOP beads. I could find the pearl (went to two Michaels and called three).

I had a ton of fun making this piece. I gotta work on the pics too!

Iced Berries! Love it. It reminds me of a lipstick that I used to wear called "Cherries in the Snow". The red combined with the wintry shades is such a pretty combination.

What a lovely necklace! I know it's a bummer to not be able to find all the beads. I was having near panic attacks while searching for the MOP myself (it was hidden!)
Thanks for sharing your creation!

Can't believe we had the same thought of doubling the chain links. I love the pendant your made and the name is great!

Lovely! I'm liking the bright blue that the pendant focal adds to the design. :)

Thanks to you all for the comments. You know I was so concern about capturing the red of berries that I didn't even pay attention to the blue in the pendant.

Lorelei thanks for creating this challenge, it has been a blast. I will surely participate in the next one.
