Blogging from A-Z • R

R is for REVEAL!

This reveal is for the Spring Fling Kit challenge!!!   I want to start by saying - thank you for my former BSBP partner, Alenka, for collaborating with me for this challenge and creating these beautiful pendants!

I confess however, I am a wee bit behind.  I was busy over the last few weeks with this A-Z challenge...and a few other challenges!  In any case...I know some others had some time issues, but in the bead world, I think it's fair to say that we don't like to pressure anyone.  BUT since I know some people were finished, I decided not to postpone the reveal.

I figured I would just post my progress so far!  I may even finish today (I'm actually writing this on Friday for Saturday!), if so I'll update with my finished piece.

Here was the kit:

And here is what I've done so far!

Please take a look at what the other participants have done...I know I am excited to do so!!!

  13. I am beyond sorry I missed this this time around. I have been out of the loop in so many ways. I love what you put together in the kits and what you created with the time you had!

  14. It was fabulous...i liked the way you put together all the beads in a very artistic way..i think if you band below the kit then it can also be used as bead bracelets...right?

  15. Wow! I like what you did with the focal.


Thank you for your comments!! They really mean a lot!
