That's right, it's that time again--time for the Bead Ruckus reveal! Hurray!
To jog your memory, this was the kit:
|Bead Ruckus Kit No. 6|
And, using those components, this is what I made!
|Ta-da! A fancy necklace!|
When I first saw the kit, I was rather fascinated at how the colors actually went together--greys and purples and shades of gold. So, instead of adding other components to tie everything together, I just let the kit do the talking.
And, I have to say that while the vintage lucite crystal was quite large compared to the rest of the components, I think it turned out to be quite a fun focal piece.
That was the only piece that I made that used all of the components--but I did make a few companion pieces.
First up, earrings:
...And, of course, a hairstick:
After that, I still had additional components left, so I decided to make another necklace (it's even shorter than the other necklace, so the two can be worn together if so desired):
...Then, I decided to make an entirely new set--because bottlecaps are wonderful, and the vintage lucite crystals were an exact fit!
...And, last but not least, a giant chunky ring:
So, to wrap up, I made one piece using all of the components, and then six companion pieces. And, like last time, these are definitely not things I would have thought to put together--but what fun to play around with them!
Thank you so much for looking--and be sure to check out the Bead Ruckus Blog to see what the other lovely designers made with this kit!
