Black and White Challenge Reveal

BW Badge

Hello friends,

Another fun "challenge and reveal" has come and gone.  For some reason I seem to work well under pressure.  I've had a long dry spell with little to no creative juice. This is why I decided to sign up for this Black and White Challenge and push myself to follow through.  Even though this piece isn't real complicated, I love the outcome.  Although it qualifies as a "choker" it sits very comfortably on the neck.


2  - Donna Millard Lampwork Beads
Sterling Silver Findings (to taste)

1 - Copper Washer (enameled black)

16 - Faceted Black Onix Beads

13 - Medium Metal Beads (enameled black and white)


Mix vigorously and connect.


The following designers are also participating in this challenge - please take a moment and check them out:


Thank you for checking out my blog!!

Black and White Challenge (It may be the catalist)

Good morning,

I haven't made a piece of jewelry since March.  I'm not sure why inspiration hasn't knocked on my door, but I've been waiting patiently.  Anyway, I saw this challenge and thought this may be the kick-in-the-butt that I need.  Well....... my piece is finished and I think it may spark more jewelry in my future.  Please come back and visit on reveal day (July 10). 

The Challenge:

  Design a piece of jewelry that uses only black and white in the design. 
It can be elaborate or minimalist but only in black and white.
Exceptions To The Rules:
1.  wire, metal or chain in silver, copper, brass, bronze, white or black can be used
2.  crystal or crystal AB color beads can also be used to ACCENT the piece

Reveal Date:
