Family Challenge W/ KayzKreationz!

A month ago, my daughter's mother-in-law, KayzKreationz, & myself decided to challenge ourselves to our own Blog Hop since we had so much fun with the Challenge of Color Blog Hop in November, 2012. 
Kay & I decided to use a color palette from design-seeds. Our choice is called Feathered Love. It's a beautiful palette.

We were suppose to get this posted by the end of January, but I'm running late with the post! I did, however, get my project done on time.

I decided to stitch seed beads, tube beads, crystals, & glass beads from the techniques I learned reviewing the book published by Kalmbach, Easy Crystal Stitching Sophisticated Jewelry by Nikia Angel.

My Project

I really like lariat style necklaces and wanted to see what I could do with stitching one. So I made the square components from the book & incorporated them into the necklace. I put my own twist on it! That was fun but a lot of stitching!

I used green/gray tube beads, orange flower glass beads, green glass beads & crystals, light green, dark green, gray, & light grayish/white seed beads of various sizes.

I hope you like what I created. Let me know what you think!

Kay combined this Family Challenge with another project she was working on; Vintage Lucite & Clay Blog Hop. Check out her blog and let us how we did!


  1. It's cute. I really like the way you incorporated all the colors. That bead stitching is way too much work for me. The lariat necklace turned out great.

  2. That is such a great palette and you nailed it!

  3. love those bright and tropical :D

  4. stopping by all the blogs taking part in the bead soup blog party. cant wait to see what you make!


We love hearing from our readers! Thank you for sharing your wonderful thoughts :0
