I mentioned that when I finished the purple Constellation necklace that I had a lot of the silver rice beads and was going to make more Constellation necklaces with other colors. When I bought the purple CZ teardrop I also bought some "Lemon Ice" colored ones. The Lemon Ice is very green (although it photographs much yellower) so I got out my bright green pearls and started the necklace.
Unfortunately, I wasn't happy with how the necklace looked just using the pearls, so I went to Lima Beads
, where I'd bought the teardrop, and ordered some Lemon Ice CZ bicones
. Yeah, the necklace isn't totally from the stash, but for the most part it is, so I'm ok with the UUtS label.
Since I posted about it on Saturday, which is not one of the most visited days here, I'm going to mention again that Soft Flex Company
is having another Flex Your Creativity Contest
! This time the focus is on creating Steampunk
-style work with Soft Flex beading wire. I love Steampunk, so I'm really excited about entering. Contest entries must be received by September 1, 2010, winners will be announced on December 1st.
I listed some references and posted some pictures of my Steampunk designs on Saturday
- hope you'll check the post. Click the image above for the rules and more information about the contest at the Soft Flex site.
