August Component of the Month – Caroline Dewison!

AAAANNNDDD another month has gone by, and this time it was Caroline Dewison’s turn to provide the component for the Art Elements Design Challenge!  She sent these!

Beautiful celestial beads!  As usual, I did not take a photo of my set, but hey, you’ll see them below!  So drumroll….. here’s what I made!

I did another spiral stitch necklace, with Star Sapphire size 8 and 11 beads, and some gold plated hex beads (all found at Bead Fest because I remembered to bring the set Caroline sent me so I could match beads!!!!) Proud of me! The hex beads mimic the starts on the ceramic round perfectly!

I used a ball-and-socket clasp, I really like these when I make a spiral rope necklace, easy to apply and easy to use!

I’m not an “all matchy matchy” person but we did have these great round beads, and since I didn’t use them in the necklace, I decided to make a simple pair of earrings with them!  I like them, I like simple jewelry so there you have it!

Please visit everyone else’s blogs to see what they made! Thank you Caroline, for some great beads! I enjoyed this challenge!

  1. I am in awe of your spiral stitched rope! I really do want to try and make one of those one day. It is perfect for that starry bead, especially with the added gold hex beads.
    I also love the fact that you made earrings with the matching beads! Brilliant idea 🙂

  2. What a lovely necklace! And the idea to bring the beads with you to the bead fest is genious! I think I have several beads I have to bring with me to finally find something fitting for them (at least to the bead store 😉 ).
