so it's the 25th, time for our big reveal!
i thouroughly enjoyed my challenge this month. if you'll recall, this is what i got:
so many possibilities! and i just happened to buy "bohemian-inspired jewelry" by lorelei eurto and erin seigel. it was sooo fabulous! i went out and spent waaaay to much money on ribbon and cord and leather! wheee!!! and so i really wanted to work some of that into this design.
here it is:
i used a lovely variegated pearl cotton to string the peeled paint art beads, micro-macrame style.
and i used for the focal a lovely gustav klimt-inspired bead from humblebeads by heather powers.
then for the back i used some recycled sari silk ribbon and attached with turquoise memory cord found in the embroidery threads and two patinated cones by patinaworx.
i really had fun with this piece!
and then i used the pink peeled paint art beads in a bracelet. i dug through my art beads and found a perfect ceramic heart link by gaea then i threw in a couple lava beads, some amber, two copper leaf links, and a copper clasp. i'm so pleased with this bracelet! and i did something a little out of my comfort zone by using the pink and going symmetrical.
didn't that turn out pretty?
so go visit jeannie dukic's webstore and buy up some of these luscious peeled paint art beads! and finish the hop with this little list.
