This is my first time playing along in the Firefly Design Challenge. For this challenge, one picks from two or three different component kits from Michelle McCarthy of Firefly Designs. She makes wonderful ceramic pendants, bracelet bars, earring components and beads. She sent along a secret component from Gardanne Beads, a little enameled butterfly charm! The challenge is to use all the pieces in a set of jewelry. What Fun I Had!
Here is the bracelet made with three of her pieces and lots of fun additions.
Here are the simple and sweet earrings I made with her earring pair of charms.
Here is the main attraction! Her fun butterfly bead is matched on the other side by her round bead paired with her flower shape piece. The focal pendant is made with her focal and the sweet butterfly charm from Gardanne.
Most of the rest of the elements of my three pieces came from Allegory Gallery.
Those yellow and brown glass beads are Manik Manik Indonesian glass! and they were a perfect match with the silk ribbon and waxed linen and leather that I used to tie everything together.
OH, those adorable ladybugs.... Czech glass!
Check out all of Michelle's great things from her Facebook site and join us next time!
