Little Red House

About this design:

This is inspired by a Fresh Pick Sunny Chick did in December 2010 called 'Bring it on Home'. I kept going back to it again and again... so I decided to make something from it. I accumulated the components over the next year, and fiddled around with the design for a bit more...


Ceramic house, Apple Jasper, Silver leaf jasper, Smoky Quartz, charcoal shell pearls, gunmetal spacers and toggle.

    I have one of these in my stash and like gembeads, I’m afraid to use it…….. :-|

    Eeka, my friend, I’m humbled by your comments. I’m thrilled you drew inspiration from that fresh pick. I recall it vividly. You ROCKED this design! The Earthenwood focal looks perfectly at home (pun intended) nestled among all those glorious beadies! Congrats to you on creating such a fabulous set! 8O
