A few months ago, some members of the design team for ZNet Shows were invited to take part in a challenge -- the theme was Rings and Bling. If the chance to choose components from their wide inventory to work with wasn't enough, everyone's creations were going to be included in an online publication, Creative Spark.
Needless to say, I jumped (in an enthusiastic if not entirely ladylike way) at the chance. I scrolled through the website making selections, sketching ideas as I went.
The earrings above are just a taste of what I made. I got to do some beadweaving, some stringing, and even some wirework. The necklace below may end up being an early Christmas gift from me to me -- you never know! I've been a good girl, I swear. Just trying to help Santa out, you know...
Creative Spark was edited by the multi-talented Hope Smitherman, and she did a fabulous job. I'm thrilled to be included alongside some of my favorite designers. Go check out the ringy, blingy eye candy everyone made. I'm on pages 53 - 59 (got a little carried away with all the yummy components!).
