Mother Earth Challenge reveal

Good Morning! A bright and sunny morning on my little corner of earth.  It’s that deceptive winter sun though.  I stepped outside barefoot to take pictures and I think that may be the last time this year for my concrete patio.

Enough about the weather though, it’s time to see what I made with this lovely lady who arrived oh so quickly from Sweden.  Sent so generously by another lovely lady, Birgitta Lejonklou.



Here she is now all dressed for the blog party

012

Like many ladies she tried on several outfits before this look came together.  She wanted to be a sea goddess of sorts so I made her a ruffled polymer blue/sand ombré dress and some coordinating little wave beads.  A few seed beeds, some commercial ceramic and two stacked polymer buttons bring it all together.

Many thanks Birgitta, it was definitely a challenge for me to find the right balance, since I do struggle with bracelet design, but in the end I’m very happy!

So there are many over lovely creations to see with all sorts of Mother Earth interpretations.  Don’t you love how the internet brings the world to your door? My first time getting a package from Sweden, but I don’t think it will be the last.

Travel the earth – this way!

    1. I'm so glad you liked it! I would have been happy to create with any of the focals but I knew this one would be a tough one for me. I didn't share any pictures of my first attempt I took apart. Ah well, it's all learning. Thank you so much for the opportunity
