“Challenge: Owyhee Riverbed”


Description from KarenDe-Challenge Chick: We all found treasures and opened up new horizons as we scoured the site for eggs. Now, let's put that to work on expanding boundaries in our own beading! So here's my challenge to you all: Select a bead you normally wouldn't like or choose, and design a pick around it :) Here's my try with Owyhee Jasper.


Buy the Beads!

    This pick is a lot more masculine than mine usually are. I can’t decide if I like it or not!? But that’s the challenge!!!

    I’ll tell ya, girls – this is where we really see all of your artistic talents – to pick something you don’t care for and make it beautiful.
    Congrats to all – for using things you don’t like, you’ve sure made some beauties!
    I’m gonna play too!!!!

    too funny, too! ’cause I was talking with Jeannes Gems last evening and she was inspring me to try some orange – which I don’t care for, as a rule – and threw some ideas together…. but I’ll save that thought – that would be cheating. I’ll find something else that I don’t like – ok kid, stop talking, start doing

    I love challenges and will make a pick that will stretch design. I love this pick!! I would definitely use these beads together. I have designed with Owyhee Jasper and it turned out to be one of my favorites!!

    Just found this pick, which is going into my favorites! Will have to think about this challenge,but in the meantime, I love looking at what everyone else does with that difficult bead that just doesn’t seem to fit in with the others!!
