Thanks Heather (Humblebeads) & Lorelei Eurto of Lorelei's Blog for hosting this blog hop...it was certainly a 'challenge'! :)
This was a really a struggle for me, both in designing the piece I made and setting up the blog! Had no end of trouble with both...especially the computer...silly machines...but did finish both in the end. :)
I wasn't sure about the colors of the different beads, especially the 'blue' table cut beads, as I'm partially color blind and they just didn't look 'right' with all the other beads...but did incorporate them into the design...in a way that I thought was pleasing. Hope you all think so too! :) So without further ado...here is what I did...
