It has been a while since Christine and I did a She Made/She Made challenge, we decided to take the summer off, so let me refresh what this is all about. In July of 2012 I went to Pennsylvania for a family reunion and Christine and I met in Carlisle, PA at the Rolling Bead store, then we had lunch it was a great day. I gifted Christine with a box of goodies that I made up from my stash and she in turn gifted me with some goodies too. Since we both kept half of what we gifted each other we decided to have a little challenge between the two of us making something from two item chosen from our gifted stashes. So with out further ado here is what Christine chose for us to create with for September.
She chose the Aventurine donuts from what I gifted to her and the orange Czech glass beads from what she gifted to me. Here is what I made.
It took me a little while to grasp an idea of what I wanted to make with the beads that were chosen. It was not until I took a little trip to Huntsville in north Alabama, and I went to a little bead shop called Mary's Antiques and Beads, and found the color enhanced Carnelian 4 and 8 mm beads, some 8 mm Aventurine beads, that I knew I wanted to do a Cellini spiral. When I got home I went straight to my stash of seed beads and started pulling out all of the green and orange seed beads in sizes 15, 11, and 8. As I was beading the spiral the colors reminded me of the rich oranges the oak tree leave turn in Autumn here in Alabama mixed in the the dark green of the evergreens, so I decided to name my piece Autumn in Alabama.
Thank you for stopping by to visit, now please be sure to go by Christine's blog and see what she created.
Happy beading Y'all,
