October 2016 design challenge

Ooooo … scary! Halloween is just around the corner (how did THAT happen already?!) and  Dry Gulch Beads is once again hosting their creative design challenge – celebrating this month with a wonderful colour palette of October-inspired hues.

I have been working on a brand new collection of mini steampunk-ish mixed-metal book and journal pendant necklaces and am offering the first sneak peek right here with this submission …

A flame-kissed brass blank was used to create the cover of this little sunburst journal – incorporating the fall colours – “Vintage Candy Corn”, “Ichabod’s  Pumpkin”, “Little Black Cat”, “Woo Hoo Witchy Woman” and “the Thriller”, and “Skeletons in the Closet” … for the blank pages inside!

September 2016 design challenge

Is it that time already? We are well into September, so that must mean that it is time for another edition of Dry Gulch Beads‘ monthly design challenge!

This month’s palette contains such beautiful muted, vintage colours …

khaki, honeydew melon, pencil lead, vintage coral and flax

The piece I am submitting is part of a collection I’ve been working on lately – incorporating other artisan’s creations along with my own. In the spirit of vintage/days gone by … this necklace centres around a double sided copper & resin pendant made by Jennifer Tough. It has a different image on the front and back (which – between both sides, contain all of the lovely colours above!), and is paired up with flame kissed copper components and ultra micro fibre suede cord.

July 2016 colour design challenge

Ack! The end of July is almost upon us, and again, cutting it so close … with another last minute submission for Dry Gulch’s colour design challenge.

July16EventCover

This month’s theme revolves around sunny & bright, fresh, summer colours in terracotta, golden sand, lemon meringue, green juice and avocado.

I ended up creating two pieces for this challenge – a necklace, and a bracelet.

The first one is a sweet little owl necklace –  “Spread Your Wings” … a hand stamped and patina’d arte metal tag, with a colourized owl charm, a beautiful etched glass bead in shades of both golden sand and lemon meringue by Burnt Glass Studio, a tiny terracotta czech glass bead, lemon yellow waxed cotton and avocado green leather.

and the second piece is a summery lampwork bead and leather bracelet in the same colours …

Hope you are all having a happy summer!

June 2016 colour design challenge

Happy June!

Are you ready for the 6th installment of Dry Gulch‘s monthly colour design challenge?  (It is so hard to believe that we are halfway through the year already!)

June’s colour palette is inspired by tattered peonies … june-color-challenge-multi-wrap-bracelet-by-peacock-and-lime

(Henna artwork design by Nikita )

… and the piece I created to match, is a multi layered wrap bracelet full of these lovely warm hues …

This “Mexican Sand” bracelet contains a number of gorgeous elements … beautiful paint brush desert jasper heishe gemstone beads, gorgeous rose gold topaz czech glass beads, flame kissed copper components and 2 lovely little polka dot lampwork beads by Julie Van Ember.

Enjoy summer!

May 2016 colour design challenge

Eek .. almost the end of May, and I have had yet to post my submission to Dry Gulch‘s monthly colour design challenge!  (nothing like just cutting it in under the wire!)

This month’s colour palette is inspired by vintage poppies …

May16EventCover

While I love the colours, I found this challenge to be more … well … challenging, as I realized that I don’t really have a lot of red or coral coloured bits and pieces in my arsenal of jewellery supplies. Not for any particular reason … I just don’t seem to have many. But the seed beads and the colours in the owl bead I did have matched just perfectly!

So, along with the seed beads, I created a sweet little owl necklace adorned with moonstone, peridot, and amazonite … (similar in style to March’s submission, as it also featured a lovely little polymer clay pendant by Anastasia of Dreams and Elements ).

We’re calling this little guy  “Hoot”
