Michael's Challenge Reveal!


I didn't use all of the beads, but I really love the rustic look of those brown ceramic beads.  The focal I chose is a ceramic piece made by Pat Antonick of Heliotrope Bead Studio in Dayton, Ohio.  I love visiting her shop.  It's small, but her workroom is enormous.  She is an artist, beader, and quilter.  I am lucky her shop is close by.  The twisted looking ceramic beads were made by Pat as well.



Thank you for stopping by, and here is the link to other participants of this challenge:  http://www.humblebeads.blogspot.com/

Also thank you Heather Powers and Lorelei Eurto for hosting the challenge and providing the inspiration!

Super fun pendant! Goes great with the brown beads (the only ones I didn't manage to use!) Enjoy the day. Erin

I love that you used a local bead artist, what a treasure! Your necklace is beautiful, I like that you went with a darker color palette with just touches of the green. Thanks for playing along.

What a fun necklace. The focal really makes me smile and your color palette is so wonderfully neutral that the necklace can be worn with a variety of outfits.
