Earthenwood Design Team

I was invited by the lovely Melanie Brooks to be part of her Earthenwood Design Team. I received the first package of goodies a few days and couldn't wait to get started. She sent us all a "wood" toggle, 2 "wood" links, and a house inspired pendant. I love the faux wood pieces she's been doing. It falls into the natural elements I normally like to use, so I knew it wouldn't be a problem to design around them.
The pendant will have to wait for a future project, this time around I just used the toggle, and the links. I paired them with a Marsha Neal Studio transfer Owl pendant, wood tubes, mottled green czech glass nuggets, and some faceted pink Rhodonite rounds, brass wire and drilled beach stones.
I love the creative idea of having a group of people using the same elements but in different ways. Kind of like the Michaels challenge and the Fusion Beads challenge! It pushes me in new directions and I get to use elements in new ways. 


  1. Now that's creative, wearable, and fun! I like necklaces that make subtle statements, like yours, that we are part of nature.

  2. Hmm ... none of the links are working for me. Am I the only one?

  3. Wow! You're fast! I didn't get my pieces yet. I hope they come in the mail today! I love how Melanie's pieces look so great with the Owl pendant. Just a natural together. Love your choose of beads here. The design looks really fresh and earthy!

  4. Lovely, you always design outside the box!

    None of the links you gave could be found. What a pity!

  6. Hey there Lorelei, I didn't have any problem getting to the links you posted. Love your pieces...they have such a nice feel to them. Congrats!
