So when I saw that Halcraft was hosting a contest for fall photos, I knew I had to submit something because my photo albums in my phone and on my computer are overflowing with New England fall foliage photos! This is one of my views at work, and it was one of my favorites from last week so here is the one I submitted:
Fortunately I was selected as a finalist in the contest! If you have a moment, I'd be grateful for your "like", if you like the photo/palette. Just visit Halcraft's Facebook page or click here! All the photos and palettes are quite gorgeous so I encourage you to take a peek! Erin of Treasures Found is selecting the prize beads so I couldn't be more excited for this opportunity!
Here are some more lovelies from my albums if you are in the mood for fall!
There has been plenty of beading in my life lately too! Over the summer, a friend of mine in D.C. extended a huge favor to me. Since then I've been attempting to make her something bead-y as a thank you. I struggled a bit coming up with something I thought would be fitting for her, and ended up with this lariat/earring combo!
For a while, as I was working on this, I wasn't sure how I wanted the lariat to meet up at the neckline, but finally decided to build a loop in the strand for the opposing side to enter!
