CC7A July Reveal

Pin It


Welcome to the final month of our Creative Continuum of Seven Artists design challenge. For the past seven months, our little group has used beads and components sent by other members to inspire our creativity. July's awesome kit was provided by Emma of A Polymer Penchant. You can see what she sent here.

I added a few extra components to create this bracelet and earrings (my first earrings since finishing the 100 Days 100 Pairs Challenge... CAN YOU SAY BURNOUT?)  I chose some assorted pink lampwork and magenta carved bone beads, both from Yukidesigns, and coordinated 12mm shell pearls from Lima Beads.


 



Here are the bracelet and earrings I created with Emma's kit:
 












Thanks for visiting today, and thank you to Emma for the inspiration this month, and to Alicia for putting us all together in this fun group. I'm sad it's over :(

Here are the rest of our members. Some are on holiday and may post a little later :)

Last CC7A Reveal Tomorrow

Pin It


One of only a few chances I will have to post this summer, tomorrow is the reveal for month #7 (the final one... sad) of our Creative Continuum of Seven Artists. These lovely and challenging components were sent by Emma of A Polymer Penchant:




An eclectic collection, n'est-ce pas? Lots of pretty glass, kooky "Trixies" from MyELEMENTS and the gorgeous polymer clay/resin focal, handmade by Emma. (Sorry the photos don't do it justice, girl!)

The note still makes me giggle. Emma wrote, "Hope this found you and not your neighbor..." My mailman has a habit of delivering my packages one street over (same house number), but I guess I should be grateful Canada Post hasn't yet stopped door-to-door delivery, as they have threatened :(

And Emma, when you sent this in January, we were enduring bone-numbing chill for weeks on end, so you added, "...(we) should be warm then", meaning in July. We just got through several weeks of record-breaking heat and humidity. It's all a matter of perspective, isn't it? Too bad we can't bottle the extremes of temperature for a little swap now and then *TeeHee*

The following designers will be participating in this CC7A reveal with me, though a couple are on holidays and/or posting remotely, so do check back on them if you don't see their post right away. See you tomorrow!
