So...while I had the best of intentions, I didn't quite get to making my entry for the latest Lorelei and Heather challenge.  And the palette is really stunning:

I did buy the beads at Michael's, and I did have art beads in mind to meet the challenge's "twist." These are all beads I already own, and they matched the colors of the beads perfectly:

Starting bottom right is a Tin Snippets creation from Lorelei, a feather from Marcie, and a coral pice from Round Rabbit.  All the glass beads are ones I made myself.  The far right one is made with glass called Caribbean - it's a clear deep green glass with a layer of opaque turquoise.  The rest of the beads are made in a color called Kryptonite that I LOVE, and the big bead and the pair have some multi-colored frit added.  I bought the chain at Michael's, too, because I envisioned something with multiple strands, maybe long.  Or not.  But I know nothing will happen until this gets cleaned up:

Check out the other contestants over on Heather's blog, Humblebeads.


  1. Don't give up on it Miss Elisabeth! I have a lot of beads left over and will likely keep making. I look at these challenges as ready made kickstarts for when I need a little creative lift, no matter when I get to them. I will check back to see how you are doing! Love the color of your studio walls! Enjoy the day. Erin

  2. I agree with Erin - just jump in and update your post with your pieces. I'd love to see what you make!!!
