“Bead Challenges”


Description from Granny Nancy: I love so many gems but decided on amethyst, lapis/denim, and blue crazy lace. I don't like Vintaj Arte but I can see how it might make an interesting piece. I added a lampwork and a polymer bead.

    Nancy, we all knew you would have amethyst in your design! You are THE lover of purple in our group! :) I agree that the Arte Metal is difficult to design with, but I have seen it used with stunning results.

    I’m so excited you did the challenge! Thanks! I love hearing what other people like and don’t like. I really like how you arranged the pieces, with the 4 quadrants. And love your choices. Amethyst is my birthstone, so I always have a sweet spot for it, and I love lapis, as well. And the HB piece that you chose goes so well with the larimar crazy blue lace.

    One of the Vintaj Arte pieces that I do like is the lily of the valley pendant – that was my grandmother’s favorite flower. (I’d like it better in the artisan copper, though!)
