Today is the day for the reveal for Sharyl's Jewelry Seed Bead & Metal Blog Hop.
I have to apologize for the pictures and post tonight. My internet is down and I had to use my phone for the post.
Sheryl sent me several goodies to play with. A couple of colored metal disks with earring wires that she made.
She also included a seed bead focal piece made by Shirley Moore.
Shirley used dark green, honey beige, lime green lined clear area beads and pearly colored faceted beads.
I started with Shirley's focal piece. I wished I was able to do any of the beadweaving ropes as I thought that would have showed off the focal really well. Since I don't do beadweaving, I strung three different wires with black, pearly white, and crystal faceted seed beads and then hung the focal from them.
Next I worked with the metal discs that Sharyl made. She colored them with a peachy rosey color. I added some strawberry glass rounds.
Sharyl had also included a strawberry colored pendant along with some multi-colored ribbon. I had planned to add the pendant to the ribbon and make a short necklace. I actually went shopping for ribbon ends, put end in the cart, forgot to give them to cashier, and left without them. As soon as I finish the bonus pieces, I will post the pictures.
