Every month Jeannie K Dukic creates a bunch of beads that she sends out to the participants who have signed up to be in the Echo Creative Club for 2012. Some of us are in every month, some, like myself, are in only a few of the months. We choose that ourselves. We get the beads for free, then we create something of our own choice with those beads, and then we blog about it on the 25th of that month. It's a jolly neat arrangement I think. A sort of win win concept that I am very happy to be a part of :-) .
Below you can see the beads I got for September. They are 13mm in diameter.
Here in Sweden we have a chocolate bar called Fransk Nougat (French Nougat), made by Marabou , the biggest chocolate company in Sweden. These beads immediately made me think of that bar. :-)
My idea was to emphasize the chocolaty feeling of the beads. And hence, here is the necklace I made. Matinee length.
Two tones of seed beads of size 8/0 strung on beading wire. Antiqued copper lobster clasp and findings. Between each polymer clay bead by Jeannie also sits an 11/0 seed bead for a slight spacer effect.
