I had a lot of fun with this challenge!!!!
I love greens- especially lime and olive. So this challenge was a breeze for me!
Speaking of breezes, I started off by making the piece below. If you do not already follow Andrew Thornton's Destash page on Facebook, go now!
Alison whipped up some really cool grab bags and this necklace was made with some of the components from the one that I got.
I'm not a big 'blue user', so when I opened up the bag and saw these nesting lava rocks, I was kind of bummed out.
But in another kit, I had this cool orange plastic circle, so I knew that it would be cool to use it with them!
The yellow beads and the green manik manik are also from the kit. So I am pleasantly pleased with the results on this piece!!!
The tear drops in the piece below were from another destash. It's a simple string that uses seed beads as spacers, but the lemon lime combo sure is jazzy. I can't wait to wear this one!!!
The following piece was from a bag of beads that a friend at the shop gave me. I know she is going to be bummed out that she passed these up!
I had enough to make a bracelet, but I need to find an awesome clasp. Once I do, I probably won't take it off for a long while because I love these beads so much! Thanks friend!!! (You know who you are!!!!)
Lastly, I made these two pairs of earrings.
They are both funky and fun and I have been inspired to make earrings lately because collectively, we just don't do it enough when we get together at the bead shop!!!
My apologies for not having ear wires on them. Those pics got transferred onto my computer to free up space because I needed room on my phone and my camera for all my vacation photos.
So, thanks for stopping by to take a look!
And I can't wait for tomorrow when the new kit debuts!!!!!
Tell your friends to play along if they aren't already!!!
See you then- Laurel
