Sweet Honey Reveal

Welcome to the Sweet Honey Reveal.  Our Fabulous Host is The Infamous Andrew Thornton.  The kit that each Designer purchased contained these items:


First up I made a beaded bead focal out of some of the seed beads in the kit (upper right hand corner). I will use this Focal at a later date.

Next is the 3 Strand Memory wire Bracelet using the Gem chips and glass beads from the bag in the lower right hand corner.

Well we certainly need earrings to go along with the bracelet in the same Monochromatic color scheme. The two square beads were screaming at me to become earrings.
The Surprise Focal included in our Kits resembling Honey Comb, I Fashioned into a Necklace with beads, cube beads from the Kit and crystals from my stash,

Litttle Bee charm also enclosed in the kit.


Well I need a pair of Vlntage Shoulder Duster Earrings usuing my Favorite Vintage Brass connectors from B'Sue Boutiques, some Spectra beads which are glass beads with these little designs etched onto them and little glass czech flower beads.
I have a Purer going might as well create another Bracelet, I certainly have enough beads for one, and my favorite connectors

This was a fantastik kit of items and I had fun.  I was able to blog and spend a little time with you, hope you enjoyed my Sweet honey Collection and jump over and visit the other Participants
Remember to wear Vintage, Its new again.

Pine Ridge Flora Challenge

Thank you Lisa Lodge for the challenge.  Several Artist purchased a kit for the reveal today.  My kit looked like this
Loved that fantastik Clasp and Vintage filigree squares.  I'm the pink girl, love, luv designing with Pink so I set it aside for this challenge and chose the Ruby Red my least chosen color to design with. I made Shoulder duster earrings and a more simpler but stunning pair for the less adventurous lady, lol
I then Colorized this Leaf using Gilders paste and Nail Polish with Diamond Glaze Sealer


Here you have my Parure Hope you enjoyed your visit, go peek at the other Artist at
