Brave Angel Special Challenge

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and I am sure that you have seen pink everywhere.  Now pink isn't my favorite color but when Andrew Thornton put out a call for a special challenge, well you know me, I couldn't resist.

He always puts together the best kits and I always end up with more then I can possibly use.  I actually didn't end up using much at all as I picture women that have survived breast cancer as warriors so a lot of black snuck into my design.

I used the mystery component, some of the vintage glass and lucite, and a whole lot of onyx.  It was all knotted together on waxed linen.

I also put together one pair of earrings that will be donated to Ears To You which supports women undergoing chemotherapy from all types of cancer.

I know that a lot of the designers including Andrew are planning on auctioning off their designs to donate towards breast cancer.  To check out their designs, click here.

After a lot of thought, I have decided against that simply because my fibro hates this weather and I don't know how well I will be able to monitor an auction.  I will however be sending in this necklace to a boutique that I sell through and all my proceeds will be donated to Ears To You.


  1. Pink and black - and your theory behind using this color combination - is perfect! Kudos to you for donating to Ears to You - have not done that in a while...thanks for the reminder! Hoping your fibro gives you a break! :(

  2. Your designs are beautiful! I love the pairing of the black with the pink :)

  3. I love the black with the pink! It really makes a statement! Fabulous job!

  4. Love your pink and black necklace and earrings! So pretty!
