The Reveal




On October 2, Lorelei Euroto challenged her blog readers. I decided to take up that challenge. Believe me, I am so glad I did! Here's the blog post.

Summarizing quickly, Lorelei challenged her blog readers to go to Michael's and find beads and chain that matched as closely as possible to the ones she chose. Of course, if we weren't able to find the exact matches, we were able to choose those beads and chain that were close.

Here's a look at the beads. I came very close to the ones Lorelei chose.


Now, for the reveal! Be sure to scroll down a bit.

Lorelei, the wire just looks white, it's artistic wire that is silver colored. It just photographed that way. I couldn't change it.
