Link Challenge Reveal

Charming Peggy of Charmbarn was kind to offer an incentive. She had acrylic links half of us got black and others tortoise shell. We were to create jewelry pieces with these links. There will be a vote and the winner will receive a gift certificate. Voting ends August 27th.

I was part of the group who received black links. Today is the reveal of the projects we created. Stop by and check out the pieces we all created. Don't forget to vote!

Here are the links.... and the necklace I created with wire wrapped silver beads and silver chain. It was fun working with these links and I hope to domore projects with them soon.

Celebrate Life! Create some happiness....

Bead Soup Blog Party-6, 2nd Reveal

Well the wonderful three part event is now in it's second phase. We are at the second course of our three course meal of yummy decadence of jewelry design. The point of the soup is to send beads and findings to and receive beads and findings from a person we don't know and has been selected for us. We then make jewelry - stretching our skill sets - working with items and styles we may never have before. We share the adventure and blog about and hop to see what everyone has come up with and to ooh and ahh. Please join in this next chapter of this event.

The 2nd Reveal, BSBP-6 is under way - don't miss this opportunity to follow many more talented people. You followed the first reveal, trust that the second and third will be well worth the time. Grab your beverage of choice and snack food, if you want any - and enjoy the hopping. I know I will.
