Jewelry Challenge Inspiration

The deadline for the upcoming jewelry challenge is fast upon us. Finished pieces are due in EIGHT days!!! The theme this time is That Special Bead. So... we thought it would be fun to look at some jewelry designs made by the Fire Divas. Of course they all feature special beads.

This piece entitled Tree of Life was made by Holly's Folly for an Art Bead Scene challenge.

There are two special beahhhds in this earring set from Maybeads. And don't you just adore the heart links?

The ever talented Lara Lutrick reminds us that a special bead can be plain or fancy but use it to make something special to the wearer.

Rhyme or reason, whatever the season, your special bead should have meaning to you. Babs Beads and Design shows off the ever popular skull motif.

That special bead is something to be treasured and admired as in this piece by Barb of River'sEdgeGlass.

Don't forget to use color to evoke a mood as in this fiery design by Karen of Fire-n-Sand.
