The Jenny Monthly Challenge - June Edition

To be honest, I wasn't quite sure what to do for this month's challenge. 

I had a lot of ideas, but none of them seemed right. I wanted to do something spontaneous and unique... Something photogenic and a little silly, and hopefully didn't involve wire-wrapped links.

At a loss, I asked one of my friends for help. Her response? While we were visiting a craft store this past Monday, she went into the bead section, picked out a pendant, and told me to make something with it.

...That's exactly what I'm going to do. 

And so, my challenge for June is to make something with this:


It's a bling crab.

...Not something I would usually pick out, I admit. Sure, I like Swarovski crystals and all sorts of faceted glass, and have been known to go through extra-sparkly-shiny phases. But I don't usually go for bling crabs.

Although, I have to admit that the more I look at it, the more it makes me smile. It's kinda cute, in an aqua-and-rhinestone-beachwear sort of way.

This should be fun.

So, come by on the last Friday of June--the 26th--to see what I create with this whimsical pendant!


  1. I like the colors. And he is kind of boinky ...:)

    1. This pendant has really grown on me. As you say--he's boinky! :)


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! :)
