Hidden Cove Reveal

Une nouvelle fois j'ai acheté les perles pour un défi organisé par Andrew Thornton, Hidden Cove  (crique secrète). Une nouvelle fois j'ai reçu beaucoup de perles et dans des tons qui ne me sont pas très familiers, des bleus et des sables, que j'avais envie d'explorer.
Et une nouvelle fois, je n'ai pas pris de photos avant de commencer.
Lorsque j'ai vu le composant créé par Andrew je savais que je voulais un collier assez court et fourni pour entourer cette belle sirène. J'ai imaginé un collier brodé, un collier multi rangs.
Finalement je n'ai brodé que le pendentif et utilisé les perles les plus grosses pour la chaîne.

Once again I didn't resist to one of Andrew Thornton's challenges and bought the Hidden Cove kit. Once again I received a huge number of beads and  in colors I'm not really familiar with, blues and sands, but that I wanted to experiment working with.
Once again I forgot to take pictures of the beads before.
When I saw Andrew's special component, I knew I wanted to make a short and heavy necklace to surround this beautiful mermaid. I imagined an embroidered collar or a multi strand necklace.
Finally I only embroidered the pendant and used the bigger beads for the chain.

Et comme il me restait beaucoup de perles j'ai fait une paire de boucles d'oreilles pour l'accompagner.

And as I had a lot of beads left over, I made some earrings too.

Pendentifs / Pendants, Scorched Earth

Maintenant je me prépare pour le prochain défi, Grasslands, le 12 mai.

Now I'm going to work on the next challenge, Grasslands. The reveal date is on May 12.

  1. I love the color indigo so I gravitate towards anything in that colour. But this necklace is beyond beautiful. Its perfect to be worn with a white cotton tunic in this scorching hot weather

    1. Thank you Divya! I really enjoyed embroidering the pendant a lot, and I'm learning to work with blue!

  2. I love your necklace! I like how the beads around the pendant are fanning out like the mermaids hair. Lovely. I think your also found the perfect beads to go with those great blue beads from the kit in your earrings!

  3. Your talent knows no bounds! Always beautiful!

  4. Beautiful Karin! and absolutely love how you worked the pendant in the necklace

  5. Love the necklace, specially since it's in blue tones that I love. You're a very talented lady Karin.

  6. Beautiful Artwork Necklace, you chose a perfect pairing of beads for your Neck chain, and the focal is just lovely.

  7. Amazing bead embroidery! My favorite bead from the kit that you used is the big faceted one next to the focal. Love it!

  8. That should have been a period and not a question mark.

  9. Karin - Your necklace is wonderful! I love how you combined all the different bead types - the blue nuggets and sand-colored beads, all pulled together with the embroidery treatment on the mystery component. I didn't use the mystery component because I couldn't see the colors but you have pulled them together perfectly!

  10. That necklace is Oooh La La!!!!
    Bon travail!!!!

  11. So luscious! Great job! I love how you've created the visual weight in the necklace and really complimented the focal. For not being familiar with some of the colors, you've really done an amazing job and one would think you worked with this combo all the time! Great job! And thank you so much for participating!
