February Design Challenge: Design Ideas

With our February challenge well under way, we thought we’d call on some of our crafty friends to give you some ideas on how to use the pieces in our £5 Valentine’s bundle.

First up, the lovely Debra has created some stunning pieces including a 1920s inspired necklace using our red seed beads and silver lined bugle beads, along with our red crystals. We love the tassel detail on this, especially since we’ve been so inspired by the twenties lately, too! (Read of Great Gatsby blog post here!) She has also made a set of matching earrings, plus two bracelets using items from the bundle, and still has plenty to spare! You can see the designs in more detail on Debra’s blog where she explains the inspiration behind each piece.

Next up we have some more fabulous designs from Gail, who again made a number of pieces with her challenge bundle. First of all Gail used the pack to create a stunning necklace with matching bracelet and earrings. We love the use of the diamante rondelle spacers to add a touch of sparkle. A perfect set to wear this Valentine’s Day!

Gail also used her seed beads to create a bracelet and bag charm, putting her fantastic wire-work skills to good use! Such simple ideas using our red seed beads that are really eye catching. Be sure to visit Gail’s blog for more details on her challenge designs.Gail Lett 2

Finally,  our friend Rachel from Mason Blue Designs created this lovely bracelet incorporating all the items from the challenge pack in to one piece. Made using our seed and bugle beads with a selection of crystals and diamante rondelles, Rachel has created a delicate woven effect, then finished off using our diamante heart as a focal feature.Rachel Maison Blue
