Two New Entries!

We have two final entries to the Complimentary section of our color challenge! I love this eye catching yellow and purple cuff by Jodi Horgan! Jodi used a bright yellow Lisa Peter's Art Cabochon in her design.
Here is how Jodi Describes her piece--
This one of a kind bead embroidered cuff was created around one of Lisa Peters Arts (www.LisaPetersArt.etsy.com) gorgeous OOAK round raku ceramic cabochon. The cabochon is embroidered with bronze seed beads and then surrounded by bronze and rainbow opaque fringe beads. The metal cuff is covered with genuine purple leather and lined with lavender ultrasuede.

Check out Tari's 'dem beans Bracelet. It is so fun and really makes me think spring! Doesn't everybody want to be thinking spring right about now? Oh yeah!! Tari used a pretty little Spirited Earth Flower in her design. Tari's Etsy Shop is Pearl and Pebble
Here is how Tari describes her piece--
I don't know all I could think of was those candies that were red beans? I don't even remember the name! This is my entry for the color challenge using a complementary color scheme. The color wheel says blue/green and orange/red, but I think of these in terms of turquoise and coral because I love turquoise and coral! The beautiful focal is from Spirited Earth. Other elements include turquoise, sponge coral, lampwork glass, bahay seed and my first hammered ring! Thanks for looking:D

I will announce the winner of the complimentary section of the Beads-of-Clay Color challenge shortly! The winner will be chosen at random.


  1. Absolutely gorgeous!! This was a challenging one!

  2. Oh, I remember, they were called Boston Beans! They looked like baked beans and had a hard candy shell.
