Hope you are all enjoying the Holiday Season! Thanks for taking the time to visit this month's She Made~She made. This month we are adding another person so it is a triple "She Made". Yay!!! Alicia from All the Pretty Things is joining Therese and I. When you are done here, go take a look and see what goodies you will find at All the Pretty Things and at Therese's Treasures. Look here to see Therese's pick for December's Challenge. Therese and I will be working with a glass focal and square beads. Therese and Alicia will be using some GORgeous teal glass beads. I cannot wait to see what they do with those beauties!
Here is what I made. I am reading "Woody Guthrie : A Life" by Joe Klein and I think I was channeling the whole vibe of the book when I went with the stripped down feel and the muted colors. Simple. And I like it...a lot :-) Though there was nothing simple about Woody. But that might be better left to another blog post!
Therese gifted me with this Juls Studio Gorgeous Glass Bead. I had so many elaborate plans to weave and fringe and ripple and bling and it all is in the ever-growing pile of projects that just didn't work. I made this long enough to slip over the head and on one side I used a matte olive rose drop bead and the other side matte olive rose seed beads. I put some gorgeous Swarovski crystal donut beads in there. I love blending earthy with shine. I think they really compliment each other. I balanced it so that the focal is across from a double of the crystals, as seen below.
And here it is one more time.
Therese also picked these square beads. I added green freshwater pearls and some seed beads and made this bracelet.
That is what I have for this month...now to see what Therese and Alicia made!
~See You All in the New Year~
