Echo Creative Club - February 2012

Welcome to my second Echo Creative Club challenge.
Peeled Paint Chip Beads provided by Jewelry by Jeannie.

I was sent a package of white, gold and copper peeled paint chips for this month's challenge and with so much on my plate this month almost forgot about them! Yikes!!!

I had tucked the package away for safe keeping (my 2yo plays at my bead table) and then almost forgot to make anything. Luckily for me Jeannie sent a reminder e-mail and I went straight to my work table and got out my goodies.

I wanted to pull out the copper color in the beads so I grabbed one of my etched copper pendants, copper bead caps, my handmade copper ball headpins, some goldstone from my friend Katie Deck and some dyed riverstones. I <3 riverstone.

I stamped the pendant with my daughter's name because she is our little princess ;-) As you can see she loves it and it works as a mother's necklace for me too.

I hope you will visit the other participants for this month's challenge. I can't wait to see what they have come up with.

Thank you again Jeannie. These were beads I would have never thought of using but I love them so much, they are lightweight, well made and just a perfect accent bead for your projects.

 Sorry this necklace is not for sale, it's mine, if I can get it away from Emily Grace :-)

You have the cutest model EVER! Princess Emily is adorable. And I love what you did with the stamped and etched pendant. The beads work so well with so many different combinations. I am blown away by the whole group.
Enjoy the day.

I LOVE it! What a beautiful focal and I love your using goldstone. I have a set of those white beads and I had thought about goldstone, too! Aren't they cool beads?

I love all of it! The copper plays wonderfully with Jeannie's beads. Of course, the model is the best of all! :)

Your necklace is stunning and your daughter ~ Princess Emily ~ is adorable! I love the goldstone with Jeannie’s beads … the perfect backdrop for making the peeled paint beads shine! Good luck getting that necklace back from Emily … she clearly loves it as much as we do!

This necklace looks great! Love the stamped pendant too!
Emily looks very similar to my granddaughter when she was younger - she is too cute!

Emily's face says it all! It's mine and I will not give it back. :-) Great work and I love the pendant. Ties it all together.

Very sweet Shannon. Perfect for your little girl. Sweets for a sweetie! I particularly like that you used gold stone. For some reason I've never used it myself before. I've just never managed to see it in a design. Now I have changed my mind. Thank you! All my best!

Very pretty Shannon! I love copper as a metal, the look, the warmth, the colors that pair well with it. It just speaks to me. Love what you did with Jeannie's beads! Just gorgeous!
