Festival Lights Blog Hop





I have to admit that this challenge had me totally stumped.  I set out the beads that I got and played with them.  And then, I played some more.  You see I had one thing planned when I saw this kit and then I didn't get exactly what was shown.



I think what really threw me off was the fact that I had semi-designed a piece based on what I thought that I was getting so when it changed I was thrown off track.  What finally got me heading the right direction was the clasp.  I was putting some goodies away and ran across the elephant clasp.  All a sudden I was picturing a circus big top and it all came together from there.



The three focal beads and the orange crystals are from the kit.  The rest are goodies that I had picked up from other places.  I didn't end up using the mystery component so that will be making an appearance at a later time.  This bracelet is for sale at Shaiha Designs.


Now go explore what everyone else has come up with.

  9. I'm glad the clasp was the catalyst that you needed to put together the bracelet. I see a big top there as well! Love the way the colors play together.
