Bead Hoarders Unite! ....for the Bead Hoarders Blog Hop...

I'm looking forward to the next several Sundays (as that is when I do most of my beading) looking through my stash to see what I can come up with for this blog hop! :)
There are 165 other beaders, besides me :) that 'hoard' their beads too! Wow!...and am sure that not everyone who wanted to participate was able to either...which is a bummer for them, but as Lori said, this will become an annual will see what happens next year...and I think that is a wonderful idea! Thanks Lori! :)

Black & While Challenge, sponsored by

 The Studio Sublime logo 

 The Challenge:

  Design a piece of jewelry that uses only black and white in the design. 
It can be elaborate or minimalist but only in black and white.
Exceptions To The Rules:
1.  wire, metal or chain in silver, copper, brass, bronze, white or black can be used
2.  crystal or crystal AB color beads can also be used to ACCENT the piece

Reveal Date:  Wednesday, July 10th, 2013

There are 35 participants, including Sally Rissick our hostess. 

I've included 3 close ups here so that you can see the features better...! :)


Here is my finished piece. I used silver accent seed beads and a silver toggle clasp to go with the black and white. I'm quite pleased with the results! :)
Thanks Sally, for allowing me to participate in such a fun enterprise... enjoyed the challenge a great deal!
