Another great suggestion by Cat. This week's Oldies but Goodies Theme Challenge is FESTIVE. The challenge is to post something that incorporates FESTIVE COLORS.
Go through your stash and post a picture in this thread, that pertains to the theme. It can be something you made yesterday or something you made 5 years ago. We encourage you to post as many items as you want. Can't make it much simpler.
We hope to see lots of creative pics of your FESTIVE inspired creations.
At the end of the challenge Cat will make a collage from the entries (at least one picture from each member) and post it on her blog to share what a talented crowd this is! She will link back to your shop, blog or other pages from your signature. If you don't want your piece/s to be included, please note that in your post.
We'd love to have more members participate in this easy, fun challenge. Won't you join us?
Cat, all of your pieces are awesome! You should absolutely keep that first piece (although I would be tempted to keep all of them). Irith, that vivid red against the silver in your pieces is stunning and elegant.
Michelle, wonderful colorful pieces! The necklace on the left is outstanding! I also love the dangle earrings with the hoops and small beads! Dawn, your jewelry is unusual and festive. The bangle is my favorite!
Cat, thank you for starting us off and raising the bar sooooo incredibly high! Amazing work! Irith - I love them all. Michelle - Beautiful wire weaving, and I like that you incorporated one of those bejeweled Indonesian-style beads in the center. Dawn - All of your pieces have such a cheery vibe, I love it.
Here are my entries for this week. I was making a new piece, but ran out of wire. I'll finish it...eventually.
Dawn, your pieces definitely qualify as festive. They have such a happy vibe. I love the first bracelet. It is so whimsical. Togan, your tasseled jewelry is so fun! I love the jewel-tone colors you used. The quilter in me gravitates toward the jewel tones.
As to my pieces, Irith, the necklace that you mentioned is one of my personal favorites as well. It was my first 5 strand necklace. Eventually, I sold it to a local boutique. Her interest was a big boost to my confidence. And Togan, thank you. That Indonesian bead was an experiment. I’d never seen anyone do that. I kept that necklace for myself, but I’ve got other Indonesian beads waiting in the wings. Cat, that long necklace started life as a belt. LOL! Looked great on my mannequin, Daisy, but not so much on my middle-aged body. I wear it as a necklace.
Okay ladies let’s get our festive jewelry and a hit a festival! 😄
