AJE Challenge

C'est la rentrée et je me remet doucement en condition, cours et perles. Je vous passerai les détails des cours. En ce qui concerne les perles, je vais reprendre avec le défi mensuel de Art Jewelry Element, cette fois-ci, les tiges et clous d'artisan. J'ai tout d'abord, recherché tout ce que j'avais, et il y en a beaucoup. En voici un aperçu.

It's time for me to prepare  to go back to school, start another year and I've been preparing for a while. I won't talk about my real life job preparations, but about starting a new bead year and to do so I chose the Art Jewelry Element monthly challenge, this time focusing on head pins.
The first thing I did, of course was to look for all the ones I had, which is quite a lot.
Here is a view of my collection.

Il y a de tout, verre, céramique, pâte polymère, métal, de tous mes artistes préférés.
Il a fallu que je fasse un choix.
Tout d'abord une paire de Something to do Beads pour faire le pendentif d'un collier.

There is a little bit of everything, ceramic, polymer, metal, glass from my favorite artists.
I had to make a choice.
I was drawn to headpins from Something to do Beads to make the focal element of a necklace.

Puis j'ai choisi des tiges en verre coloré de Samantha Capeling associées à des connecteurs et des perles en céramique de Happy Fish ainsi que des petites perles en verre de Uglibeads  pour des boucles d'oreilles joyeuses.

Then I chose some colorful glass headpins from Samantha Capeling which I associated to ceramic connectors and beads from Happy Fish and tiny glass beads from Uglibeads to make some fun earrings.

Je me suis arrêtée là pour aujourd'hui.
Allons maintenant  rendre visite à toutes les autres participantes pour admirer leurs créations.

I stopped here for today.
So now let's hop over to the other participant's blogs to see their creations.
