Jewelry Making Mojo Challenge

Heather Powers of Humble Beads had an idea to get our collective jewelry making Mojos back from where ever they had gone. 

Last week she suggested that we join a jewelry making challenge. That was enough to get me going! This week, she suggested getting together a little "Bead Soup" (a collection of beads, not the organized blog hop) and play with it...hopefully making something. 

I started with some beads from little containers in which I had been collecting left overs and thrift store purchases. I decided to make a style of necklace that I love to wear. 

This one can be worn single as a log necklace, doubled, or wrapped around your wrist as a bracelet! I pushed down my natural tendency to establish a pattern, and made it totally random (except for making sure that the kitty beads were not standing on their heads.) As for color, well, you can find all shades of blue, purples, clear and well, whatever looked good!

Oh, and this last picture is evidence that I really love this style...a necklace that I made years ago, that I still wear! Sometimes you need to go back to your roots!

Let's see how the others are doing in their hunt for the elusive Mojo!

  1. love all the COLOR! I'm ready for it after so much snow. I like long necklaces that you can wrap around your arm for a bracelet.
