I can not believe it is November 30th already, as a mater of fact I forgot until 5:00 am central time that today was the reveal day for the She Made/She Made challenge between Christine of One Kiss Creations blog and myself. So Happy belated Thanksgiving to all of my American blog readers and Happy Holidays to everyone.
Back in October I received an email from a lady that had seen a necklace and earring set, that my cousin, who lives in Maryland, had purchased from me one summer at a family reunion. She wanted to know if I could make her a set just like that one. Well as you all know when we create it is usually a one of a kind piece, especially when it is made with an art bead. So after a few emails to find out what necklace and earring set she was talking about, I told her that I could make her a set similar, but not exactly like the one my cousin has, and I sent her pictures of the MarshaNealStudio tiles I had left in my stash.
Which were also the ones I had for mine and Christine's SM/SM challenge. After seeing the tiles she wanted both sets. So I emailed Christine and told her about the tiles and she agreed that the Marsha Neal tiles would be our November reveal. So this is what I made and sent to the lady, to whom was very pleased with what she received.
I had a hard time with this one because of the color of the tiles, but I settled with 2 mm dark brown leather and sliver base metal filigree beads and silver base metal round beads. I hung the earrings on Sterling silver ear hooks.
On this one I used 1.5 mm dark brown leather with 10 mm brown died matte finish Agate beads and 8 mm Sodalite beads these beads help bring out the blue tint in the tile pendant.
Well I know these are not very creative, but it was what my customer wanted and that is what counts.
Please go by Christine's blog to see the beautifully colorful creations she made with her MarshaNealStudio tiles.
December is Christine's pick I can not wait to find out what she has chosen to work with.
Happy beading Y'all,
