Moon Garden Challenge Reveal: Laurie Carpenter...

These pieces were made by Laurie Carpenter.  Here's what she had to say about them:  "This was my first time doing a kit and although I was very excited, I was also a little overwhelmed!  My favorite thing to create (and wear) are dangly earrings.  So, that's what I started with!  The color palette made it perfect for creating pieces that really seem to glow and I like that they make me feel like I am wearing a literal "moon garden"."

"I also made a bracelet that didn't turn out exactly like I planned.  My wrists were too small for everything I had envisioned!  But I really like the way it ended up.  I added a pop of purple and the Hill Tribe silver piece is something I picked up in a bead shop in Sarasota years ago and I had been waiting for the inspiration to strike.  Thank you, Andrew, for this opportunity!"

Your earrings are lovely and I really really love your bracelet! The silver and pop of color are perfect and make this look like a flower garden on a lovely moonlit night.

Beautiful set of dangle earrings. I love the combination of big, bold beads, silver and the ring with charm dangles. Very funky and fun!!

So many great designs! I love the necklace and that you went one step further to accent the white beads. That is really clever!! I love all the design elements on the necklace and your use of an embellished bezel. The bracelet and earrings are the perfect coordinating finishing touches.
