Copy Me Design Challenge by Gaea

Gaea posted a picture of this bracelet and encouraged copying her design either way our muse would take us.

She distributed a kit to 6 participants.  I was not one of them because I signed up after a bunch of people, but my first chore was to put a similar kit together.  So I used ceramic beads, fire polished beads, brass tone chain and wire and a metal focal with holes on each side.

I liked the way she used her ceramic beads right into her focal, this I copied.  I also liked the multiple strands of chain and used them on one side of the necklace.

I saw red or brown glass beads attached to the chain in her original design, so I use fire polished glass and added blue because I just felt like it.  I also attached my clasp to the back, yet kept the asymmetrical design in my creation as well.

You can see that is a different creation from Gaea's, yet the inspiration and similarities are there.  I hope you like it.

Here is a list of other participants:

  1. Fantastic! I love your use of color and that winged heart rocks!

  2. That heart is pretty darned cool. I think that this is totally you. I know that you used some elements, but really, you put your own spin on the materials and the patterns and I would not say at all that you 'copied' anything. Great inspiration. Thank you for sharing.
    Enjoy the day!

  3. Love the color choice! And that is one cool focal.

    Bead Happy!
