Beading Babes Project 6

Since joining the Beading Babes group I've participated in two of the group projects. This time I selected the Josephine Collar by Jill Devon and the soutache earrings by Amee McNamara. I've shown them both below. I couldn't find any ribbon I liked for the necklace, so went with the chain. I am going to use a chunkier chain when I've found or made a bigger toggle or clasp. Otherwise, it looks pretty good. I used fuchsia and gunmetal. I also omitted the dangles as they didn't appeal to me. I adored the little taste of the soutache technique with the earrings, so will be making more with this idea at some point.

Embracing the Fire

I've been meaning to share this piece since I was able to reveal it, but life has conspired to keep me too busy. Anyway, I created this piece for the Fire & Ice challenge on the Australian Beading Forum. Although, my design was not a winner in the challenge I'm still totally thrilled with how it turned out. I hope you enjoy seeing it, too.
