I am so excited to show you my finished "Green Challenge" pieces
for my local circle- Art Quilts Ect monthly challenge.
I had my ingredients laid out for Bead Table Wednesday and here are my finished pieces.
Right now I am in love with this set.
Not only are the bib necklace and cuff comfortable to wear; light weight and lined with flannel.
They drape perfectly for a stunning look.
Here are closer looks at the necklace,
and the cuff.
You can find out more about my process on Flickr .
I am extremely happy with the color combinations and design.
This has inspired me to do a collection based on inspiration from nature,
thanks to Heather Powers at Humble Beads and my art quilt group.
I have been striving all year long for ways to incorporate my love of fiber with my love of jewelry
and I think this will be my most unique series.
I plan on doing seasonal pieces that will all include fiber, my handmade polymer clay components
and beads ect. from my jewelry stash.
I am madly working on my "feather" challenge piece too
and hope to post it tomorrow just in time for the deadline.
I made two sets of peacock feather beads, here they are:
|My first attempt are a little subtle.|
|I am happiest with this second attempt because the color is more intense.|
|This is the back side of the beads, textured and painted too.|
Come back tomorrow to see my Inspired by Nature: Feathers entry.

Have a great day- I am headed for the pool!!
