So I decided to join a few groups this year. One of them being the Bead Journal which I am super excited about. I have two ideas for that one that I am still tossing around. I have to decide soon though! This is the first month so I need to get a piece done.
The other club I joined was with the Scottsdale Bead Supply store. Today was their first "challenge of the month club" gathering. Each month we meet for a half hour or so to get our kits, and to share what we made with the last months kit. I had a lot of fun today meeting everyone. It seems everyone there is into something different so I think it will be a lot of fun getting to know everyone and finding out about their different style and likes.
The kit this month was Garnet. It came with two garnet strands, crystal rondelle's, Swarovski crystal element, and some silvery metal beads. I have a month to come up with a piece of jewelry from these components. We were told we can add what ever we want to the beads. I have to be honest that I don't have much of a clue as to what I'm going to do with them. I am really seed bead dependent. Everything I make is 90% seedbeads, so this is going to push me out of my comfort zone.
I hope everyone is having a fantastic new year!
