I like to share what I've packed into each of these boxes and then reveal how (and if) they came together. This particular iteration of the box was actually stocked at the end of June but I haven't touched it yet. I suppose that's a good sign that I've been inspired in other ways. However, now that I'm looking at these designs, I'm not sure what I was thinking when I packed the box. Luckily, I did sketch out a few of them (but not all of them 🤦♀️). Here's what I've got.
|I hardly ever create mismatched earrings, but that's the idea for these.
|This simple mix of a word bubble and some pretty beads will make up a bracelet.
|I'm kinda tickled that I could match these greens so well. The green stone beads, glass pearls, and silver seed beads will become a pretty beaded chain for this found shard pendant.
|This earring design seems a bit more obvious. I do love both the brass leaves and those turquoise-colored beads. These should turn out quite lovely and simple.
|There's one large compartment in the bead box, and that's where this design sits. The Lucky Duck Pendant was one of my assemblage projects for both my 100 Day Project and for Ina's #4Core. You can click the link to watch my tutorial on making it. It will be the focal piece to a green and black necklace chain with the beads gathered there.
|Back to the earring designs...These brass connectors will be wire-wrapped to the beads here - somehow. Again, I'll figure it out.
|This little soldered stone along with those mother-of-pearl heishi beads and the little Czech glass melon beads will become a bracelet. I think it will be a cute little thing.
|I've moved those little alligator-skin-looking tin pieces around on my desk for a while now. The khaki-colored e-beads will be looped at the top of them for a pair of interesting earrings. They feel kinda safari-inspired.
|The design for these earrings feels pretty obvious to me and doesn't need a sketch. They should be pretty cute when they're finished.
What do you think? Do any of these designs spark your interest? Are you curious about how they'll turn out? I'd really love to know.
