Rings & Things Blog Partners Design Challenge

Do you remember awhile ago I posted about the Design Challenge at Rings & Things?  While I was one of the lucky winners and waiting just under the wire I finally finished my design, I was still running around today finding a few things to add.  I love the beads that Dave sent me but I wanted to experiment a little so I decided to get some of Tim Holtz, alcohol inks to color the beads, but I also wanted to use some of the raw color as well.  Using purple just seemed to fit with what I was planning.  I have included a few pictures of my experiment as well as my final design, I really hope you like it. 

The lovely pendant is from Artisan Clay, I actually received this as a special gift from Kristie Roeder for being her 700th Esty purchase.  This arrived yesterday and changed my design plans, I just couldn't resist using it.  Check out Kristie's blog today she is having her design team reveal.

Take care,


  1. Wow! This is so cool! I was drooling over the copper beads in the Rings and Things Challenge. Thanks for adding it to the blog hop!

  2. Coloring these copper beads gives a great effect! I like what you did with them, Penny. Just added your entry pic at our blog too!!
