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.
