necklace challenge

wanted to do something that involved the our learnings from
so we came up with the idea to mail each other 4random items and 3 of those 4 items at our choosing had to be incorporated into a necklace...
well, julie's blue lace threw me for a loop andi had no idea what or how to use it...
later i found out she thought i might make nina's famous coccon beads with it and
that idea never crossed my mind..
anyway, here are julie's items she sent me.. here is what i made for her......
here are my items that i sent her and.....and here is what she sent me!!!
i think we both made out like bandits on the creativity..
i just love my necklace and
cannot stop looking at it or wearing it!!
thank~you sweet julie~
cannot wait until our next challenge....

Holy Moly.......these are both super creative pieces. What a great idea this is and I think it more than likely pushes that creative button just a tad more when you are doing it for someone else like that. Great, great work.

These necklaces that you and Julie made for each other are incredible! What a fun idea! You are so fortunate to have taken one of Nina's classes. She is so talented and I would love to be able to learn from her.

Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier in the month!
