Here we are! Just a handful of us lucky ladies who are working with mega spikes Cynthia generously sent us. Please go see what Cynthia, Therese, Bobbie, and Janet made. I am darting over to their pages myself right now!

The little hop was just what I needed to get some finished pieces out of the spikes. I started working with them back in the winter when we first received them, then let them sit, undecided and unfinished. The day Cynthia announced a little hop, I went right to work! I need that kick sometimes.
First is Spike Choker, with ribbon, peacock pearls, seed beads, black ovals, spikes. It looks great on Fleur!
Next is a necklace made with seed beads, labradorite, and the spikes. It bounces around between the boobs and sometimes sits with the spike looking up at me and sometimes with it looking out at the person I am across from. It likes to bop around :-)
This next one is rather stripped down. Spikes, seeds, twins, silk thread.
The last one belongs on a WTFriday post...I am not sure it is quite there yet. Maybe the proportions are wrong? Comments? I think maybe the hematite squares need to go.
So there are my spikes! Thank you Cynthia, for your never-ending generosity :-D The spikes were so much more challenging then I thought they would be, but they were fun! That first necklace was the last one made and not much time or thought was put into it. I think it is my favorite out of the bunch. As always, thanks for visiting!
