Earthenwood Design Team Update!

Time for an update on the Earthenwood Design Team members!  The heart pendants and matching links are starting to trickle out to my Design Team members and I am starting to see some of the things they are working on! 

Before she even received my beads in the mail, Lorelei Eurto posted this necklace on her Facebook wall, which happens to be made with one of the styles of hearts that I shipped out to team members.  So technically, this wasn't made with the beads I sent for the challenge, but I know she has been busy with traveling and stuff, so I grabbed the pic and wanted to share it with you, because it is such a lovely necklace, and the perfect sort of piece to show off on Valentine's Day.  She paired an Everlasting Heart pendant with some funky dangly chain and one of Gaea's heart beads.  I love it!

 Erin Siegel made this gorgeous necklace which she calls Lover's Locket using faceted black onyx and garnet beads with waxed linen to create a piece that is mysterious and just a little dark.  I love the asymmetry of it and how it is simple and yet complex at the same time!

  4. Wow. I love what Lorelei did with your piece. That red suede cord is just a fabulous addition to the piece. And Erin's Lover's Locket is so stunning in its simplicity. Well done, ladies!
