If you've never seen her stuff, you can check it out at her shop, Suburban Girl Studios
She made a couple of different patinas, and you didn't know until you opened the package which you got.
I was thrilled when I opened my package to see the root beer glaze. They are both great colors, but that one really said Fall to me.
I was absolutely amazed at how quickly the design fell into place. I knew immediately that I wanted to make a bracelet, cause I wanted to be able to see that beauty, A LOT! :)
I think this was one of the quickest challenge pieces I've ever made. I loved the embellishing, and how the colors played off of one another.
The size 8's are actually a mix of matte pinks, oranges, and silver lined gold. It's a very soft and pleasing mix. I wove them in CRAW, my new favorite technique, thanks to Heather Collin's video.
I accented the top of it with chocolate matte size 11's, to pull in that deep pool of color in the creases.
The silver lined amber 15's edging the toggle loop really bring it all together.
Thanks so much AJE and Diana, for the opportunity to participate, and work with such a beautiful bead!
