Finally Friday

Hello, it's Finally Friday time!
Here is the inspiration from Design-Seeds:

I chose to make this post a twofer. Okay, it was a happy accident. I designed this bracelet Saturday and was hoping to make some other things for today's post but had a horrible week at the salon and never got around to making anything else.

I am a member of the Allegory Gallery Design Team and I used beads from the package of beads I was sent- the prettiest yellow colored glass cubes.

Leaf chain from Lima Beads

Etched copper I made

Lampwork Glass bead from Kreations By Karen K

Jasper and Vintaj Natural Brass

The Allegory Gallery Design Team:

I also made this lovely pair of earrings:

Lampwork beads from Cheryl's Art, forged ear wires and soldered copper rings made by me

Here is the inspiration for next week:


The rules:
Look at color palette.
Be inspired.
Gather supplies inspired by that color palette.
Create something wonderful.
Anything, jewelry, clothes, a painting, even a big 'ole mess.
Take a picture.
Post on your blog.
Link palette to Design Seeds.
Add link here.
Play again the following week!

So did you make anything inspired by this weeks palette? Be sure to add your link below.
Thank you for stopping by, I really do appreciate you reading my blog and I hope you will join in next week.

If you liked today's post please share it with your friends,  pin any of the pictures on pinterest, tweet or share on facebook and google+, but most importantly leave me a comment below.

How clever to make your piece do double-duty here. It's a gorgeous bracelet. I love the lampwork beads and the leaf chain. And your etched connector is just gorgeous. Darling earrings too!

Thanks for the links to the artists. I'm always on the lookout for new bead sources--not that I need to be buying them right now....

Have a wonderful weekend!

Hi Shannon,
The bracelet and earrings you created not only for the color palette, but for Allegory Gallery Design Team are gorgeous. I love all the different textures and the leaf chain gives the bracelet movement.
