It's Beader's Choice month! The Prima blogging team 's assignment in October has been all about us. Prima Bead asked each of us to complete a short survey describing our designing technique preference, favorite colors and so forth. So our packages are all different as the supplies were tailored to our liking.
|Copper Spool Knitted Wire Necklace|
Red is one of my most favorite colors. So I was immediately drawn to the round copper pendant with colored discs. I found some glass beads in my own collection to match and whipped up a spool knitted necklace. I made a coiled wire bail and the clasp.
Black is my personal choice for a neutral color. I also like blue. So the lovely crystal adorned flower pendant also caught my eye. I used the 20G black coated copper wire I received to wrap around some of my own blue crystals for the focal portion. A tiny glass blue star from Prima Bead's Tis the Season collection from last month's design challenge was used as the charm at the clasp end.
|Night Flower Necklace|
It's always fun to use components in different ways. What I did with the 3 -hole connectors was to link 4 of them together for an unusual pendant. The tiny metal charm also came from the Tis the Season collection. I also used a coordinating bail and a leather cord necklace I had in my own supplies. I think you can guess how I did it. The tutorial for this design will be posted tomorrow.
Our collective designs are also pinned on the Prima Bead Bloggers Pinterest board.
