I was lucky enough to be chosen this month to take part in the Art Jewelry Elements CoM Challenge. I decided to throw my hat in the ring because just *look* what was on offer from the wonderfully talented Tree Wings Studio for us to work with (if we were lucky enough to be chosen, which I was :-)) -
Aren't these just gorgeous? Look at all that texture. I chose a grey driftwood heart and it swam across the sea to me very quickly, all the way from Virginia, USA to Edinburgh, Scotland.
I thought straight away that it was the perfect bracelet bead, and so that's what it became :-) A lot of stitching later...
Look at this extra dose of cuteness that Rebekah added! Words are always something I like to add in to my designs if they feel right.
I decided to add one of my new handwoven heart beads. I wish I had a nice matte, non-metallic grey seed bead (anyone know of one?) as I feel that the blue heart would have been even lovelier in a soft grey to match Rebekah's heart, but there you go. Aqua had to do!
I also selected a gorgeous pewter Tree of Life button from Green Girl Studios to fit in with the wooden heart.
This bracelet is available in my etsy shop now.
Thank you Rebekah and AJE! I can't wait to see what everyone else made. Check out their links here:
