Stinky Dog Bead Challenge Reveal!!

Reveal Day!

First, a necklace, of course!  I used the large ring, inserted a button, then hung the gorgeous bird from it:

After I finished the necklace, I went on an earring-making binge:).

First pair:

Second (and favorite) pair:


I had to get out some seed beads for the third pair:


The double-hole beads were a bit of a challenge, but I managed to pull these out:


Finally, a full shot of the necklace:

Bead Soup Blog Party Reveal!

Reveal day!  You can see what I received from my partner here!

This is the lovely focal that my partner, Kristi Brokaw made.....all dolled up with some fun fringe. 

And a shot of the entire necklace:

Matching earrings:)

I had to put the matching clasp on the side.  It is so lovely that I didn't want to hide it in the back!

I used the Amethyst and the gorgeous peals for the back and down the sides:

It's very photogenic, right?  

I don't usually love purple, I tend to go more towards the blues/greens.  But I really love the gold and purple combo I was sent.  This piece went together flowed without any second-guessing about what it wanted to be.

Now that you have seen my creation, please go check out some of the other participants!  Here's a link!
