Hidden Cove Design Challenge Reveal

Today is the day!

It is almost over and I am barely making the deadline, but I am really excited to show off the pieces that I made for this challenge.

My daughter had a bunch of homework to do tonite to make up for the day we had yesterday visiting friends in Pittsburgh and skipping school, so it was PERFECT timing for me to get my projects taken care of...

The piece above is made with two African glass beads and the gorgeous blue stones that were included in the kit. I strung them on somw leftover memory wire and it is really a nice hefty piece to wear on its own or pair with other pieces.

This piece is made with the blue silk ribbon, a bit of the chain, seed beads, vintage lucite/plastics, and jump rings.
It can be worn as long or as short as you wish, as it has to be knotted to close since I didn't use any clasps.

This piece was made using this fun Dalmation Jasper, the pretty turquoise metallic tubes, seed beads, and headpins. 
It almost has a surfer punk style and I am loving it! 

Lastly, these are the earrings that I came up with. I think these are SO much fun!!!

My apologies because the colors in all of my photos are terrible because I took my photos indoors AND at night. Too dark and too yellow!

Maybe I will take some better photos tomorrow, but I know for sure that I will be wearing that jasper necklace to work tomorrow! I really do LOVE it!!!!

Thanks for stopping by! 

Check back next week for: Sarajo's Honey Do Challenge, Art Bead Scene, Halcraft Pretty Palettes, and the Inspired by Reading Book Club project reveals!!!!
