Blog Hop Challenge Reveal!

What a delightful surprise it was to find out that I was one of the winners of a blog hop challenge giveaway! And the host of this blog hop is the talented Rebekah of Tree Wings Studio. She creates with polymer clay and makes the most adorable little forest creatures like the ones below.

The beads that Rebekah created for the giveaway are pictured below. They are just stunning, full of color and texture.

I considered all the possibilities and had settled on designing a necklace. I had it all laid out and was ready to start wire-wrapping. But then for some reason, I changed my mind and made a bracelet. I am mostly pleased with the results. I think it still needs a little tweaking, but not quite sure yet how that will look. For now, this is the finished piece...

"Rebekah's Meadow"

I wanted to highlight the purples and yellows in the beads. I decided to go with some Czech glass beads that were simple so as not to detract from the beauty of the polymer clay focal beads. There were some copper colored undertones in the beads, so I knew that the metal had to be antiqued copper.

Rebekah, thank you so much for your generosity! I am honored to be part of your blog hop. 

If you would like to see what the other winners created, they are linked below.


  1. So fun for you! Your bracelet is beautiful! I love the combination of colors and the glass beads are like icing on the cake.

  2. Such a pretty bracelet. I wouldn't tweak it at all. I love the colors you used to bring out the color in her wonderful beads. Congrats.

  3. Oh-so-pretty!! As a bracelet fanatic, this is one I would totally love to wear—and not because two of the beads are my own! ;-) I don't see any need for tweaking. You did a beautiful job selecting colors and arranging the design. Funny how your design became a bracelet instead of a necklace—I had originally thought mine would be a bracelet instead of the necklace it became. :-)

    Thank you so much for playing along!

  4. Oh I love Rebekah's beads, and what a lovely little bracelet you've made

  5. Kathy, your bracelet is so beautiful. I admire Rebekah's work and love what you did with her pieces. The colors, including the use of copper all go so well. I've been in the mood to work with purple myself, which is out of the norm for me. Thanks for sharing!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment on my blog. It's a pleasure to hear from you!
