MICHAELS BEAD CHALLENGE

Posted by PicasaA couple of weeks ago Lorelei posted a Michael's bead challenge.  Everyone that wanted to participate purchased the same beads from Michael's and on Sunday, October 17th we would all share our creations.  We were allowed to use two additional beads and a focal bead.  My additions were the large brass chain and the red agate.  I used one of my large floral lampwork beads for the focal.  To see everyone's creations head over to Lorelei's blog where she has all the links posted.  Well I'm off to the Intergalactic bead show this morning.

Have a great day!
