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.
