Lorelei's Fusionbeads Blog Challenge

Lorelei challenged us with a selection of beads from Fusion Beads..the Lucite leaves did not speak to me so they were left out..but i loved the faceted beads and was surprised at the wonderful pattern the pinched seedbeads created when stacked together. Typically , my thought about the clasp.."i can make that"..i must have some weird OCD thing cause that's one of the first things that always pops into my head..even if i can't actually make whatever..i have to try it out.. the light has not been cooperative today...but here is my piece

After getting familiar with these elements it's clear that i will be taking this thing apart and redoing it with more color.
I also have gained a new respect for bead makers who do clasps..

Below is the list of Blog participants..

Oh Nan! I love it! I think you did a great job on the toggle!! A totally NAN piece- wonderful stuff. So glad you played along!
Sorry the leaves weren't a hit- I hope I can pick out some cool things next time. I think we'll be shopping at Ornamentea for the next one. :D

I think what you did is just beautiful

Molly Alexander said...

Wow - I really like how your necklace turned out. And the clasp? It looks terrific! The addition of the bright green really sets off the faceted firepolished beads. Great job!

Love the owl clasp!

Elisabeth said...

Don't redo it! I love it!

Birgitta Lejonklou said...

I agree with Lorelei it is very much a Nan piece :)

How many times do I say "I could do that!" But usually I don't. Kudos for doing it and doing a wonderful job too. Love it.

You made that clasp, wow! wonderful. You have my respect. I love the asymmetrical necklace and the touch of green.

Such a cool toggle! The seed beads are very cool stacked - I was so bust playing with them I never used them. This came out great!!!

Lisa Godfrey said...

Your clasp turned out great! I think the necklace looks beautiful as is. :-)

Anna Lear said...

This is a beautiful necklace! I understand wanting more color (I usually do!) but this does work in terms of both color and composition. If you do re-make it, I can't wait to see it!

Klassy Joolz said...

I love what you designed and the clasp is wonderful. Will you start making these for sale in your shop?...hope so!!

Smiles, Pam

This simply beautiful Nan! I love how you worked the mag beads! I love faceted beads myself--can never have enough!
