Suddenly Spring Challenge

I find Facebook to be a wonderful place to hang out with my friends and family from all over the world from the comfort of my livingroom. That is how and where I found the Suddenly Spring Challenge. My friend Lisa from Arizona better known to most as Metal Me This or Joolz by Lisa (both on etsy.com) posted this link to Michelle’s blog and her Suddenly Spring Challenge. http://www.michellemach.com/blog/index.php?url=archives/406-Join-the-Suddenly-Spring-Challenge.html&serendipity[csuccess]=true

 I followed the link and loved the base supplies that the challenge was based from.

I was not disappointed when I received this in the mail and I really did not have to do a thing with it. I could have used this as it was and proudly worn it with a ton of things I have. But in the spirit of the challenge, I took it apart and started playing with the components.  I added some clear and pink crystals and a few of my lampwork beads and some fun flowers and here is what I came up with.

 I hope you like it and please hop over to the other blogs and see what the other participants in the Suddenly Spring Challenge came up with. I am excited to go Suddenly Spring Blog Hopping today and see what all the others did.  You can check each of them out here:

I like the idea of adding a mix of beads of the same type, but in different colors. Your lampwork is lovely. Thanks for joining the challenge!

Shari, your bracelet is very pretty. I love all of the colors with the blue, and the flower bead is the perfect spring accent.

Love the focal bead! Not many of the Challenge participants used the spacers, I’m glad you did!
