Reader's Challenge REVEAL....

This marks the reveal of the November/December/January Reader's Challenge.  I left my piece back in Pennsylvania and didn't get a chance to take a picture of it before we left.  But I am happy to present the work of the other artists who participated in this challenge!

The kit had enameled pieces by Barbara Lewis, ceramic pieces from Diane Hawkey, glass beads from RareEarth, and a mix of Czech glass, chain, Swarovski crystals, and lots of seed beads.  The color was "jonquil".  It's traditionally a "spring" color, but while I was walking through the woods in late autumn, I found a leaf that was yellow, tinged with green.  Everything else was brown and gray, but this leaf, left in the middle of the path, was a vibrant burst of color.

And here's what they made:


Below are pieces by Alice Bavaud.  She's out of Europe and created a few pieces that are really fun!  I love the textures and the way that she used the bright yellows.

Cool and good on you, Alice. I was so busy and also a bit slack, I didn't get around to letting Andrew know I was still trying to get my piece complete. I've posted the so far unfinished piece to my blog if anyone would care to go take a look. Thanks. Here's my blog: http://asibeadit.blogspot.com/ ;-)
