Lorelei's Michael's Challenge ReVeal and Blog Hop!

This was the sneak peek from yesterday.
Lorelei's 2nd Michael's challenge involved
finding the beads
that she chose.
This time,
the beads were the green label beads.







I was not able to find all the beads,
so,
I had to improvise.




I substituted the blue checkerboard beads and the square crystal beads.
I also added the long white patterned beads in the upper right corner.
Not pictured here is the lampwork heart bead that I made and used as the focal.
I used the chain as a necklace extender.
I am able to slip this necklace over my neck.
It will look great with my Xmas outfit.
So,
the time has come to
REVEAL
my necklace.


Are you ready?



This is going to be fun to wear.
Now,
start clicking on the links so that you can blog hop with us
and
see all the wonderful creations from Michael's beads!

Really great piece, Mallory! I love the substitutions you made. I think those frosty beads remind me of the patterns Jack Frost leaves on my window. Enjoy the day!
