Autumn Night Sky Challenge

One of my favorite Facebook groups has periodic challenges where we pick a kit sight unseen (though we do have an idea of the colors), we design up some jewelry pieces and then post the pics on the Facebook group.  Now you know me, I couldn't just post them to a closed group.  I had to share them with all of my lovely readers.

And yes you have seen this bracelet before.  It's one that I made up as a custom order but since I included beads from this kit, I wanted to include it.  This bracelet has artisan lampwork beads from StudioJuls, amethyst, glass beads & howlite skulls.  Very dark, gothic and really fits the atmosphere of the pic above. 

This next design is a necklace made using the beautiful lilac glass pearls and crystals from ZNetShows that I received with my kit and focal beads from Golem Design Studio.  I am very happy with this necklace but it has a far happier feel to it then the theme pic for this challenge.  Perhaps I needed that thought of flower to brighten up what has already been a gray fall.  If you need that shot of spring, this necklace is for sale at Shaiha Designs.

For any designers that would be interested in these design challenges, be sure to check out Pine Ridge Treasures.


  1. I agree the first design is closer to the inspiration pic, but both are lovely, Shai :)
