Bead Challenge on Lorelei’s Blog


My Challenge goodies from Michael’s

The Challenge

Lorelei Eurto is hosting a fun Reader’s Challenge on her blog.   I’m always up for a new challenge, so I’m jumping right in!  Here’s how it works:

Lorelei went to Michaels and picked out some beads, that everyone will be using.  Most of the beads are in an earthy color palette.  However, just to kick the challenge up a notch, she threw in some large white pearls and some white enameled chain.  She pointed out that most people don’t design much with white.  That is certainly true for me.  I keep looking at that white chain and thinking,  “What in the heck am I going to do with that?”  But therein lies the idea of a challenge!  I do really like the cinnabar coins (there are  brown ones, in addition to the cream colored cinnabar, pictured here.  I somehow left them out of my picture.)  The pearls, new jade and wood beads are nice, as well.  Hm-m-m, what can I design, using all these components?

The Rules

We have to use the beads Lorelei picked out from Michaels, or closely similar beads.  We can add  up to 2 additional bead types to our design.  We must create a necklace with these beads.   We may use our own choice of  a focal and our own clasp.  The necklace can be any design we wish, using any technique(s) of our choosing.  The date for revealing our necklaces is Sunday Oct 17th.  Everyone will then blog about their creations and everyone can blog-hop to see all the unique designs people created using the same bead set.  That is going to be such a kick!
