june echo creative club reveal

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.

isn't it gorgeous?

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.

  1. I love both pieces, but the necklaces is really cool...

  2. Beautiful! I never thought of pearl cotton in beading. Just cross stitch. Nice to know!

  3. A girl and never have too much leather and silk. These are fabulous! Great job with the cording and the bracelet is so sweet and yes, very pretty.

  4. Hi Beth,
    Both of your pieces are beautiful. Your necklaces is so pretty with all the different elements you used. I really like the design of your bracelet too.

  5. I love both pieces you created Beth, but there's just something about that necklace that makes me want to wear it ... and I don't normally wear necklaces! So beautiful!

  6. Your two pieces are very pretty. I love the colors, the pink one is my favorite. A great way to use Jeannie's beads!

  7. Beth these are GORGEOUS! I love the top necklace...the whole design is just YUMMY. I would totally wear this with worn out jeans and a white tank top and let it to the talking! The bracelet is awesome as well. Love your findings on it! Delish!

  8. The necklace definitely has a bohemian vibe - beautiful!
    The bracelet is lovely as well - the heart link by Gaea worked perfectly!

  9. I love the colors and it looks like you had tons of fun using your ribbons and thread. I love the cones!

  10. Beautiful pieces, Beth! The mix of colours and media on each is so perfectly balanced, they look amazing.

  11. Wow, they both just blow me away. The colors you chose to complement her beads are wonderful. Love the ribbon and cotton cord, well spent money. :) And that heart on the bracelet is the perfect touch!


i heart you back!
