I met Alenka (Pepita Handmade) through an earring swap. She makes some really great polymer clay creations. She was having her year blogoversary and asked for participants to create something with a random component she would send. She didn’t even know what she sent each participant, so the reveal was a surprise to hear too! I received this bracelet bar:
Now, I had several ideas of what to make for the big reveal! However, I did not have the right materials to make what was in my head. And then when I decided to make something with parts I did have, it just didn’t turn out the way I wanted.
I made this bracelet, so that I would have something for the reveal:
I used three different kinds of antiqued copper chain, and an antiqued copper clasp that mimicked the lines of the bracelet bar.
However, this is not what I wanted to make. I have an idea, and hopefully after Bead Fest I will be able to make what I really wanted to make. I will show you when it’s done!
Thank you so much to Alenka for providing us with the parts for this challenge! Here’s a list of all the participants – please visit them and Alenka!
Machata –> Cynthia will use one of the components she won in my previous giveaway.
