Clearly Chosen Creative Challenge No. 1

Voting is now open for the Clearly Chosen Swarovski and Handmades Creative Challenge No. 1.

There are quite a few wonderful entries to drool over and vote on. Please take the time to visit and vote.

This is my entry for CCC1. It is entitled “Water Sprite”. An embellished herringbone rope in size 11/0 beads has been woven with some of the challenge beads then swirled with size 15/0s. The pendant is in the shape of the ancient alchemy symbol for water, which is a circle above the point of a triangle. The peyote stitch circle and triangle have been embellished with the challenge beads. The pink beads were discarded as they did not harmonise with the final colour scheme. To me the whole necklace has the feel of flowing water and the pearls and bicones are glistening droplets.
