andrew thornton's september reader's challenge

when i saw this month's challenge i knew i had to participate. lavender is my absolute favoritest color in the whole wide world. and twilight, andrew's inspiration, is my favorite time of day. perfection! and i'm keeping this one for me.:)

it also has some of my favorite bead artist's; c-koop enamel, humblebeads polymer, and swoondimples polymer. so much candy goodness!

as soon as i got the kit, i sat down and sketched. it took a couple tries but i got it hammered out. i'm really pleased with this design. i hope you like it, too.

twilight garden-ey goodness!

for the complete list of participant's, visit andrew's blog.

  1. Lavender has always been a steady favorite of mine also. I really enjoyed seeing your necklace, the detail you put into the focal is wonderfully full and colorful in all its purpley shades!

  8. Wonderful piece! I love how you used the wire to create such a light and floating feel. And the balance of both materials and colors at the pendant is very coll. (I see why you want to keep it ;) tara
