Echo Creative Club - April Reveal Is Here!

This was one of the months I was able to participate in
Echo Creative Club
sponsored by the talented
Jeannie over at Jewelry by Jeannie.

Jeannie makes some wonderful polymer clay beads and pendants - like the ones pictured here that I received from her a few weeks back for April's challenge.

Each time I looked at Jeannie's pretty Peeled Paint Beads this month, I kept thinking to my self, "Greek Goddess". 

So, I think that's what I was channeling when this bracelet design came to fruition.

I don't know,...what do you think?

Not sure if it's really Greek Goddess like or not.


I really like the colors though and the way it shines.

The Peeled Paint beads with their yummy turquoise color and the copper and gold tones made them fun to design with and I'm pleased with the way Jeannie's wonderful beads really stand out!

(Thank you Jeannie!)

I'm thinking I need to have a Toga party, that it's officially Summer in the desert,.....seriously.

It's reached over 100 degrees a few days this week and it's gonna stay pretty hot until late October,
so a Toga is probably all I'm gonna feel like
wearing for the next 6 months! 

Good thing I'll have my cool bracelet to wear, isn't  it?!!

  3. Oh what a gorgeous bracelet ...colors structures and those swirly hooks !! and the name !
    mine is "Black foot princess" ..they may be related in some way..:)

  4. I LOVE that blue! And the gold beads you used made it pop. BEAUTIFUL!

  5. Toga! Toga! Toga! Oh, sorry ... had a little Animal House flashback there ... =)

    This bracelet is stunning Shel, so make sure the toga you're wearing is equally so! Love the clasp too!

  8. the turq and copper together look fantastic...i love the blend of the other metals too. gorgeous bracelet!

  9. I don't know what is a more beachy color than turquoise. I love these beads! I have them in some other colors. Jeannie does marvelous work and it is so fun to see how people translate them!
    Enjoy the day.

  10. it's gorgeous--looks like the world

  11. Very pretty bracelet. The wavy spacers are really great and I like the way you mixed the copper and gold tones.

  12. This is beautiful! I really love the copper with the gold. Those gold spacer/disc beads add just the right amount of elegance!

  13. Oh honey it can be anything you want it to be. It does make me think Greek. That clasp is to die for. My beads look very happy and I love the beads caps hugging my beads.
    Thank you for creating such beauty

  14. beautiful! and the colors are great together.

    could you also tell me where you purchase your flat disc? love them also and never saw them before. thanks

  15. Beautiful job, Shel - I love the design and how well it showcases Jeannie's beads. Great job my friend! :)

  16. Susan - I got my brushed vermeil disks from Anil Kumar at the Whole Bead Show in Tucson a couple of years back. You can also find them at a shop called Beadazzled I believe. I think several places sell them. Try a google search w/images and see. They're fun to work with and these were the last ones I had! :)
