Jewelry Making Mojo Challenge: Week Two

I entered the Earrings Everyday "We're All Ears" challenge for the first week of this multi-week Mojo challenge --- Click my post "We're All Ears Hop: February" for Week One of this Mojo challenge to learn more.


For week two - To quote Heather, the brains behind this wonderful multi-week challenge;

"Your Assignment:
Find a little stash of bead soup and make something with it.

Now, I would keep it simple and let the beads do the talking - remember the challenge is to get you making something - so don't think too hard about this.

There aren't any hard and fast rules for the challenge this week - just use what is in your bead stash."

Check out Jewelry Making Mojo Challenge for more details.
I want to thank Heather Powers of  Humblebeads for hosting this challenge.
I used the colour green as my unifying theme for this challenge. I have never intentionally made a bead soup so this was a new experience - I have been sorting my "spare" beads into bags by colour to try to get a handle on my stash. In addition to using the contents of my 'green' bag, I also pulled some of my gold coloured spacers and a pendant that I created some time ago. (It also had green as its predominant colour.).
It was difficult to use my self-restraint (since I have so little) and restrict myself to using the beads in the bag. After a few failed attempts (I kept running out of beads for my planned pattern) I achieved success. It felt good to finally be able to make this 'something' piece, while staying within the parameters of the challenge. I am happy with it --- hope you like it too.
Have a great day and good luck with the rest of the weeks in this challenge.


  1. Love this! The color palette is perfect! Nicely done!

  2. A wonderful piece! I love the texture you added with the ribbons. And by the way, green is my favorite color. Nice job!
