Snowflake Design Challenge HOP!

It's time for the big reveal of the Snowflake Design Project Challenge!

There are 30 others listed below who are sharing how they used the same group of beads that I've been mentioning over the last week.


My project turned into several since there were so many beads to use!!

I made a bright aqua stretchy cord ring with matching earrings as the perfect little girl gift. (see below)

As always, I seem to design for myself, so I created a very simple choker chain design to show off the gorgeous ceramic pendant and connector. The brushed silver chain seemed to give it a wintery feel.

I placed the second connector inside the silver loop to use as a bracelet focal piece. Using soft-flex wire in two different shades of blue, I created a woven pattern incorporating some of the other great beads.

I'm wearing them now which usually means I like them and I hope you do too!  :)

If you have a few minutes, I hope you'll hop along to all the great blogs below to find out how others used them.

HAVE FUN, that's the name of the game today!

I'm absolutely loving the bracelet; I've never seen anything quite like it before. So pretty!

Hi, I'm Linda said...

Very nice. I agree that you should design for yourself. I did that same thing and my piece may be simplistic but this is more my style. I am particularly interested in how you put the ceramic focal inside the ring. The ring was a challenge for me. I wasn't quite sure how to handle it. The nice thing about these challenges is that it shows you alternative ways to treat something that you wouldn't have thought of yourself. I enjoyed the challenge.

Wow! I *love* the use of wire in the bracelet. So lacy and modern at the same time! Really amazing!

Thanks for joining the challenge!

I just love the bracelet and I love the necklace with the silver chain. It really made those ceramic elements stand out.

Both your pieces are gorgeous! I love the Soft Flex colors you chose and the way you used it. So light and airy feeling. The necklace was simple but very striking. -- Dawn

Ooh! LOVE how you used the silver ring. As I said on another blog, I had no idea what to do with. Wonderful job.

Cynthia said...

Very nice. I like that the necklace is asymmetrical. And the bracelet is just sooooo pretty!

The necklace is sleek and the lacy bracelet is so romantic and soft, makes me think of winters past. Beautiful work!

Your bracelet is beautiful! Using one of the small ceramic pieces as a bracelet focal is brilliant.

JenniferJW said...

LOVE!!! So pretty.

Firefly Visions said...

The bracelet is my favorite! I love that you used the silver connector in such a unique way. It really highlights the ceramic focal. The use of the wire in the blues makes the piece seem feminine and flirty with just the right about of sparkle in the crystals. ~ Shell

I do love the necklace - the pendent with the silver chain is a chilly combo, perfect for the snowflake theme. I would definitely want to keep that one for myself!
