If you know me at all, you know that I always appreciate a good design challenge to keep me going and creating! I've really been enjoying the color challenges that Heather Powers has been hosting in her Humblebeads VIP group on Facebook. The added element for her challenge is that you must use beads (art or otherwise) that you've gotten from her. That certainly narrows the focus when I'm pulling beads to play with each month and helps me really hone in on things quickly.
As is often the case, I had a lot of fun with earrings for this challenge! I started with a pair of faux tin charms that I had actually "lost" for a couple of years in my Bead Cruise folder. Oops! But what a perfect time to find them. :) The colors worked great and the little flowers remind me of the phlox we used to have in one of our garden beds before it all died. I paired them with some fun polymer clay rounds from Heather that I've had forever and a day as well as some Czech glass and copper elements for a fun pair of earrings to ring in Spring.
