Frenzied Motion Challenge Reveal...

Today is the reveal for the Frenzied Motion Challenge!  Hurray!  CLICK HERE to take a look at what was in the kit.  It was a vibrant blend of shocking pinks, icy blues, and cool purples.

And without further ado... here's the reveal:

This necklace was made by Laurel Ross.

This necklace was also made by Laurel Ross.

This matching set was made by Lisa Mendum.  Here's what she had to say about the pieces:  "I had a lot of fun using this challenge's bead colors!  Wish I would have had more time to make more!"

This pendant was made by Joanne Goldberg.



This necklace was made by me.  When I thought about the idea behind the kit, I knew I wanted to incorporate motion.  So the focal is made up of a length of chain embellished with wire-wrapped dangles.  I added lengths of strung dyed jade on either side.  I think it's bright and fun!

But wait... there's more!  Check out what these participants made for the Frenzied Motion Challenge!


Up next is the Amethyst Aether Challenge!  The reveal date was set for Wednesday, April 22nd to celebrate the first transatlantic crossing of the steam-ship, the SS Sirius, but I've pushed it back a day. The new reveal date of this Special Challenge is Thursday, April 23rd!  Make sure you drop by next week to see all the lovely Steampunk-inspired creations!

I was so enchanted by this kit by the time I worked with it that I couldn't wait to see what other people made.

I love Laurel's necklaces. Especially the one with the tassels. It's so bohemian, and tassels are so fun and tactile.

Lisa's set is so pretty. I love seeing how people used the large rose quartz beads. I keep having ideas, but haven't used them yet.

Joanne's pendant looks like a beautiful spring flower!

Andrew's necklace has the look I was going for in my necklace! I love how he used the colors and how the turquoise of the dyed jade make the colors of the dangles at the front really pop!

Thank you, Andrew, for another fun challenge. I'm always happy when I get to play along. I really feel like I grow with each challenge!
