NCMC - Day 1 and 2 - Earrings and Simple Stringing

I used day 1 of NCMC, to show the amazing transformation of my work room from horrific to terrific.

On Day 2, I have combined two challenges, so tomorrow I can get back on track.

The first days challenge was to make a pair of earrings. It is the first of March, and I am ready for spring to arrive. These earrings are made from carved shells, copper and swarovski crystals. The little flowers carved from the shell remind me that spring is on its way, and I could use a day at the beach to relax. The little swarovski crystal, blue like the sea....ah....take me there please!

Day 2 is a Simple stringing challenge. This piece is a nod to Dave Matthews, and the song Pig. This one is for you Leigh :)

A little pig carved from dyed quartz is the focal of the bracelet accented with glass beads, faceted crystals, sterling, silver plate, and of course - pearls. Pearls and swine - I just had to!!!!

The song that inspired the piece

Poor Comet - he has outgrown his little bed, but he still insists on hanging out with me when I work :)

What crafts have you challenged yourself to make this month!!!!
