I love how open ended this challenge is since the only rules are that you use art beads that relate to the theme. I've got lots of good bug beads in my stash to choose from... bees, moths, butterflies, fireflies, ladybugs. Oh my! What to choose? I decided to set the bees aside at least since that ties into this month's Inspired by Reading Book Club selection. (If you're interested you can see those designs HERE.)
Next up, another new necklace! This one started with a small blue dragonfly pendant from Earthenwood Studio that I got in a mixed lot of beads from one of Andrew Thornton's destash events. I guess I've just been in a stringing mood because I didn't even consider doing anything different for this one. I had just gotten the perfect blue Czech glass rondelles at Bead & Button from Nirvana Beads that became the main component of my design. I added in some darker blue Czech glass beads in a variety of shapes including a set of flowers with some brass accents in the mix.
This is a blog hop... stop by and see what all the participants came up with!
