When Heather called this a challenge, she meant it. I would never have selected these beads to go together but that is what a challenge is. My friend Evelyn and I decided to split the beads between us to see what we could come up with. The only thing that we came close to making the same were the earrings. You can see her creation here.
I had a vague idea of what I wanted to make and just laid it out. I used the rondels as spacers, the amber rectangles as the focals beads, and the purple glass beads as an accent on either side of the amber rectangles. I then alternated the green ceramic, the cut horn beads, and the aqua opaque beads up the sides of the necklace.
Below is a picture of the complete set to include earrings.
The earrings. Just nice simple ones.
