Art Beads Winter Enchantment Design Partner Challenge

More fun with the ArtBeads Design Partner group!

This challenge is Winter Enchantment.

Winter is a tuff one for me to relate to because it isn't something we really get. This year, however it wasn't hard to find winter inspiration with all of the snow the country has been getting. My daughter sent me regular updates about the snow they were getting, and plenty of pictures to my phone. Makes me appreciate North Carolina so much more!

I wanted something simple and sweet. An added touch to your wardrobe, that would be the final touch to set it off.

This is what I used:

TBRD6-288 - TOHO Bead Round 6/0 Colonial Grey-Line *
CR-RL137 - 5x4mm Opaline Picasso Roundel Bead Strand *
SW-BD173 - Stoneware Round Spacer - White Smooth *
DRUKS-LS-TUR6 - Druk Bead 6mm Turquoise Luster *
R-WHAG-SQ12 - 12mm White Agate Square Bead Strand shipped *
DRUKS-LS-LBL6 - Druk Bead 6mm Light Blue Luster *

If I was snowed in - making jewelry would help to stave off the cabin fever. What would you do if you were snowed in???

  1. I was snowed in. I shoveled snow three times in two weeks. It exhausted me, so I didn't get enough jewelry making in! I'm so out of shape it's ridiculous! Next time I will hire (I wish) the shoveling done and lock myself in the studio (ha)!! Gorgeous necklace... perfect for a snow princess! Enjoy your day :)

  2. Beautiful! I love that this can go with everything!!

    I'm waiting on my beads w/the design in my head - hope I don't change it a thousand times between now and then!

    If I was snowed in I'd sit w/my tea on my desk, beads surrounding me, music playing, fireplace going and get lost in my own little world!
