30 Day Challenge Day 3
We all know I will never be able to complete 30 days of jewelry challenges right? Well, in all honesty I only saw the email from Fusion Beads on Saturday so I was already 2 days late. March 2md called for having a Beading Party, and since it was the 2nd - too late !
I chose to work on day 3. Make a bracelet with matching earrings.. Easy Peasy right ? Well, these are the items I chose:
So I started with Silver Fill Wire and Vintage Faceted Swarovski Crystals in Montana Blue. I think that Silver brings out the shades of Blue perfectly. Though I will admit to loving Gold too !
First thought- earrings ? Not a big issue. But then I remembered I need to have 3 matching crystals. Whoa ! I need a bigger table !
I cleaned and cut my wire and set it beside each crystal as I cut.. Ideas forming in my mind. I settled on an elegant look. As I worked I realized these needed more sparkle. I added a few Swarovski Bicones in Metallic Blue and Bermuda Blue and one Crystal AB.
Now the fun part:
The earrings came out beautifully
Here is the matching bracelet with a bit more bling at the top.
And here is the completed set !
Anastasia in all her beauty will be listed today in my Etsy shop
I enjoyed the challenge immensely ! I even used those faceted crystals I've been looking at for over a year now.. So maybe I also completed another of the daily challenges too :)
If you want a challenge and bit of fun join the challenge- you'll unleash your creative muse from the winter doldrums !!
