Today is the reveal for the Dreaming Tree Challenge. I'm so late. I could't get the pictures to up load right side up. All of a sudden My Phone Camera has a top and bottom and I don't know which end is up. SMH
Dreaming Tree challenge is sponsored by Andrew Thornton of Allegory Gallery in PA. He puts together about 20 of these kits for sale and you are challenged to create and then participate in a blog hop.a full strand of fluorite chip, a baggie of Dreaming Tree Luxury Bead Blend, waxed Irish linen, vintage lucite, African glass, crystal, vintage Czech glass, Czech glass, vintage plastic, and fluorite.
I was truley challenged all I kept seeing was earring pairs. So I started with these dangly earrings with Leverbacks from www.bsueboutiques.com and Flourite, Amethyst chips, Czech beads and seed beads from the kit
Then a dangly chain (exscuse the Photo) to match. I used beads and chips from the kit, added some hand wired spiral elements for chain and glass Spectra beads to add and form a tassel.
Next I went into my private stash of goodness that I have from Bsue's where I found one of my favorite Vintage pieces of Brass, a Luggage tag. I colorized the tag to match the handcrafted Tree of life focal made by Andrew attatched them together.
I love how this piece came out. I added a hand formed chain using the beads in the kit and made another pair of earrings.
