Winter Enchantment at Artbeads

Do you remember that feeling you get when you open your front door to freshly fallen snow?  With the snow clouds hanging heavy in the sky, the world seems silent and insulated somehow.  The shades of whites and greys paint the landscape with subtle hues, and the only movement you can see is your frozen breath hanging in the air as you marvel at the icy beauty.

These images are what inspired my jewelry sets for Artbeads' "Winter Enchantment" Design Partner challenge.

"Winter's Breath"

I used the firepolished beads and combined them with sterling silver and the beautiful blue-grey pendant to achieve a simple yet elegant jewelry set.

"Icy Heart"

For this set, I combined the firepolished beads with my own enameled heart. sterling wire and beads from my stash, and some beautiful deep grey leather cord.

Thanks, as always, to Artbeads for including me in their fabulous Design Partners program.   Take a few minutes to go out to their Facebook Gallery of Designs to see the other fabulous jewelry from the extremely talented design partners.
