Almost two weeks ago, I announced that I was hopping on the bandwagon once again for Lorelei's newest Michael's Reader Challenge. And yesterday I even gave y'all a sneak peek of my necklace.
Here are the beads that I ended up using for the necklace (including the two added ones: faceted white beads and silvery-clear-iridescent seed beads.)
I played around with the idea of adding some color, but just couldn't make it look right. I'm sure some of the other participants did an excellent job overcoming that challenge. As I studied the beads, the black quartz nuggets began to look more and more like coal to me. Coal, at this time of the year, makes me think of what you are supposed to get in your stocking from Santa Claus if you are naughty. And there, the idea of Naughty or Nice was born.
