Okay, and here's some new stuff from yours truly. I call this Bronceada. It's a bead embroidered bracelet using bronzite and different shades of bronze and copper beads. I did most of it on the plane on the way back from my vacation, but finished the edging and the clasp yesterday. It's my entry for El Reto on Beads Perles. At the end of November, 14 artists from the blog will be submitting entries for a specific theme (this month is a bracelet), and everyone will have the chance to vote for their favorite. All but two of the entries are in and voting will start at the end of the month.
This was another project that I created and submitted for the Art Bead Scene Challenge. It is made using a leaf connector from Erin of Every Heart Crafts. I actually won the connector when Erin participated in the Open Studio Tour from the Beads-of-Clay blog and was fortunate that the lovely yellowy-orange color was such an integral part of this month's challenge painting. It's the first lariat-type necklace that I've created and I enjoyed working on it immensely.
