Well, Skye really challenged me with this one!
The rules are basically to make something using a piece from each baggie.
And here are the different pieces I received group by baggie.
First the feathers brought a hair fascinator to mind. I hadn't got any gold combs to hand so used a black one instead.
I would never have made this with out the challenge and I'm really happy with how it turned out too!
First I wrapped wire around the end of individual feathers and attached them to the comb. Next was the Preciosa glass pearls, then the brown and gold cord from the pack, and last of all some golden glass rondelles with toning brown seed beads as spacers.
Next thing I wanted to work with was the wooden pieces. The remind me of coconut shell or bark.
I've been meaning to try out the new coloured wire from Beads Direct for a while now and this gave me ideal opportunity to do so as the wire is totally on show with the design. I added more Preciosa glass in between the wood and then attached it to some nice thick cord.
I was just left with one baggie to use up, so I chose one of the pretty cream buttons to use as a closure on a bracelet.
Thanks for the challenge Skye! I've been putting off and putting it off as I really hadn't a clue what to make but in the end I'm so happy with what I've made. A great experience :)
And here's everyone else who joined it. Why not see what they made from the same ingredients?
