Honey Do January Challenge

January Honey Do Inspiration Challenge photo. The Challenge began in 2016 from Eric Wentling to his wife Sarajo Wentling of SJ Designs Jewelry   Sarajo invited other designers to play along.  So this month I did my Charmie Bracelets.  The multitude of blues inspired these three Pieces. I luv watching these birds fluttering around in my garden amongst my flowers. The first bracelet is Blue Czech glass beads and beige flowers with a little sparkling crystal like the outdoor sun at this time of year.
