A few weeks ago there was a challenge by Lorelei Eurto that anyone who wanted to could pick up beads that she selected from Michaels and then you could post your necklace or bracelet or whatever you chose to make and it was called the Michaels Reader Challenge Blog Hop on Sunday October 17. Be sure to check out all the wonderful work from all the designers that participated it was all so lovely and individual. I wasn't able to participate but I was anxiously awaiting all of the designers creations and I love the beads that Lorelei had selected. I recently went out and purchased the beads and decided to re-do a necklace that I had done for my craft sale. I am really happy with how the design came together and I just loved the cool tones of the green Adventurine. I have attached the first picture from the Sun Star necklace and then the re-do pictures.

I recently made some earrings that I was going to take to my craft fair last week, and a new friend from my daughters school really liked them and asked if I could make a necklace to go with it, I have been thinking about the necklace all week and had to pick up some extra supplies to complete the necklace and the finished product is finally done. I hope that she likes it!

I made a few more things today to take to my sale tomorrow, I am really hoping for a good turn out and lots of interest in my Mom and my designs. I was playing around a bit today and went a bit out of my comfort zone but I am striving to make some unique pieces to attract customers. I really love these pendants that I used today I came across them at Michaels, they were some brand new stock.

I am gearing up for my Shaker Craft & Small Business Market in Calgary this weekend and I have made a few selections of earrings that I think are inspired by the fall. The earrings on the right are actually replicated from Lori Anderson in the September 2010 issue of BeadStyle, thank you Lori for your great design.
