Andrew Thornton’s Marsala Valentine Challenge

I was lucky enough to get one on Andrew Thornton’s beautiful bead kits for the Marsala Valentine challenge. Wow, it was packed.

After pondering for several days on what to make I  decided to make a three strand necklace and bracelet. I love how it turned out plus it’s  a different color for me so will be fun to wear. I usually tend to go with teals and plums so it will be fun to have a new color scheme. I don’t wear earrings but will probably sell them. The mystery components seemed to be meant for earrings.

Be sure to take in the rest of the hop, sorry I don’t have the links. Thanks so much Andrew for hosting this hop and also for your great assortment of beads.

    I had to zoom in to fully appreciate the loveliness of your creations! I love how rich the necklace looks. There’s something very luscious about all the textures and how it is almost mirrored in the use of chain. Nicely done! Thank you so much for participating in the challenge!

    Gorgeous set!! I love the depth of color and the chain and findings give the deep reds a very romantic feel.
