Using Up the Stash #11 - Constellation Necklace with Lemon Ice CZs

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.


Soft  Flex Company presents the Flex Your Creativity Beading Contest

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.

Hey Dawno! I love this piece. While purple is my favorite color, I also love green! I guess it's the Irish in me! :) I like how this turned out... a little bit classic with a bit 'o bling in that beautiful pendant!

Very pretty!

Thank you, Dawn! I'm quite fond of it myself. Have to figure out what I'd wear it with. I don't have a lot of pastels in my wardrobe (except pink).

Sara, my pleasure! I'm looking forward to entering!
