Summer Lovin' Reveal Day

Yeah Summer Lovin’ reveal is finally here! I say this because I finished my piece in June and have been waiting and waiting and waiting for August to arrive. This was my very first challenge ever and it was so exciting; receiving the package, planning and then re-planning, making and then re-making and finally the finished result. I love, love, love this piece and wear it often. I named this piece "Winterfell" ; it reminded me of the castle in the series "Game of Thrones" (currently my favorite series). The colors of the beads in the package are not colors I would normally have picked out but they pushed me out of my comfort zone and have now become favorites. I have had many people tell me that this piece is their favorite. I love the tree of life focal bead - a polymer focal from PennysLane, I added a few tiny silver leaves that were difficult to find until my awesome sister dug through her stash and came up with exactly what I was looking for (thanks Sis!). 
Thank you Amy for hosting this challenge, I hope you like what I have created.

  6. Your first challenge? Bet it won't be your last! I've grown so much in the challenges I've participated in, and had so much fun. I totally love your necklace, it is just beautiful. I think my favorite pics are the ones with the black background and the grey, they really show off the colors in your design. It looks like ripples of water, spreading out from the tree, standing at the edge of a pond.

  14. So SO cool! I always scan through the pictures and then read a blog post. When I saw Winterfell I immediately thought Game of Thrones yet another thing we have in common. This collar is so cool. I love that clasp. Where did you get those? I had a compliment on mine today. Yep, soup's all done.
