Michelle Mach set up a snowflake challenge near the end of last year with the reveal being tomorrow (January 15th). I almost didn't get in on the challenge, to take some ceramic bead/pendents she had made by Michelle at Chinook Jewelry but I slid in juuuuust under the wire (as in, she was down to three kits when I found her blog! ~whew~)
Anyway, when I received my kit I was so excited I didn't even take time to photograph the beads as they came. I simply sat down and immediately made my necklace and earring set. It just came together. I had some ribbon in my stash, along with some white glass tubes and some tiny red beads and it actually came together in about 30 minutes (usually takes me much longer what with all the fiddling around and redesigning). So, here are my pics of the set I made.
|Necklace strung on winter blue and brown|
ribbon with white glass beads as accents on
the ribbon. Around the pendent are little red
beads to represent cranberries and crystals to
represent the iciness of Winter.

frosted drops! The blue flowers
just seemed to echo the snowflake
perfectly and the silver accents were
also reflective of Winter's iciness.

beads from my stash and Michelle's kit.
I call it Winter to Spring since it's going
from icy to red hot.
