Autumn Design Challenge

2 Oct

Welcome to the Autumn Design Challenge, hosted by Lesley and Caroline!

After winning my chance to join this hop and after all the possible issues one can have with paypal (thank you Leslie for your patience!), I received this set of gorgeous beads by THEA Elements and Blueberri Beads.

I soon began to work with the flower. The design came instantly to my mind.

Then I moved to the big connector with those nice shades going from blue to green.

A jubilation of green and blue tigether.

Yesterday I finally incorporated the four big round beads in this long necklace.

This is what I made and I have still two beads to use in the future. Now it’s the moment to see what the other participants made. Let’s go and see!

    Ambra – I love these designs! I would wear them a lot. Especially love the bracelet with the nifty bunches of jump rings!

      Thank you Lisa!
      To tell you the truth, those jump rings were not supposed to be a part of the design. πŸ˜‰
