La Bella Joya's Mini Charm Challenge

Marcie Abney of La Bella Joya blog put out a challenge to all that wanted to participate.  All one had to do is check out April/May's Beadworks magazine and find her tutorial on the Morrocan Mini Charm and make a piece of your own to be presented on her blog today April 7, 2012.

Here is what I created with her mini charm.



I used 4mm Aventurine gemstone rounds, rainbow green size 15 seed beads, green and bronze size 11 seed beads. The bronze connectors and toggle clasps are made by Lesley Watts The Gossiping Goddess. You can find these items in her THEAtoo etsy shop.   

Go by Marcie's blog and see what the other's have designed with her mini charm and see what else Marcie has to offer.

Happy beading Y'all
Therese

  3. I love the green and bronze together and the clasp you chose is just perfect. It really is a fun spring bracelet. This was a great pattern. It's awesome that it can be used in so many ways.
