Autumn Design Challenge & Blog Hop

Bracelet & Necklace Thea:blueberribeadsI was one of 20 lucky winners of Lesley and Caroline’s autumn design challenge.  We were each sent some beautiful beads and components to work with.  I have a picture of the beads I received and the two pieces that I made with them after I added a few beads and some chain that I had on hand.   Thank you both so much for giving me the chance to work with your beads and components.  I was a little stumped at first as to what to make but I’m really liking what I designed and can’t wait to wear them. I have the links for more of Lesley and Carolines beads and components below.

Here is the list of all the winners so you can see what each one has made with their beads and components.
