Michael's Challenge Reveal

Lorelei Eurto does these Michael's Challenges and now and again. If you want to see a complete list of the blogs invoveled in this challenge hop just click here.

I got a couple extra beads in there...some I used and some I didn't. I love this palette especially with the orange mixed in...



These are my pieces that I created for the challenge, it was a struggle. The first piece I created was a bracelet. I love the design. In seeing pieces on the Internet, I tried making my own chain links....it turned out pretty good for my first time making that particular chain.


 

I also realized that I left out some beads, so it was back to the drawing board. I really wanted to make a necklace and some earrings but it seems that only bracelet designs are flowing through this brain of mine, so I go with the flow. 

Here is what I came up with....





I'm doing a huge giveaway for Labor Day so if you don't want to miss it just "like" my Facebook page.

Orange is a great addition! And I love the little cluster of the white beads on the earrings. I never thought of doing that! Enjoy the day. Erin

When I saw the palette, I wanted to add orange also (and even bought a strand of orange beads). In the end, I couldn't make it work.

I am so glad you did, though. I really love your bracelets and the earrings are awesome.

Your designs are great! I especially like that second bracelet with the big bead and little pops of orange. Nice. As well, I like the way you used the white nuggets in the earrings. Dangles are perfect for them!

Really love the earrings. I thought it was funny when I saw the beads you bought because I also bought the blue ceramic tube ones but didn't end up using them either. :)

I LOVE the second bracelet, but I also loved that you added the orange. I opted for red in my piece. I love that pop of color. Great work.

Beautiful work! The second is my favorite; earthy and easy to wear.
