The Gossiping Goddess Bead Giveaway and Challenge

A while back the lovely Lesley Watts of the Gossiping Goddess was offering free lampwork beads that she had been given by her very talented friend Kaz Baildon of Cheeky Cherub Designs and I was lucky enough to get one, here is the lovely bead I was sent....

Isn't it beautiful!

Now while this bead is stunning and in my favourite colours I still had major difficulties with it all due to its size, this is one BIG bead, so I could really make it into a bracelet which is my go to thing, so I had to rethink, now I did try to make a fantastic ornament for my tree but it involved soldering a blue cab in a bezel and that did not work and then I cut out a tree from copper sheet and wired up a different design but that did not work, it just looked all wrong finally after many failed attempts this is what I came up with....
I matched it up with some green and blue spacers and threw in a bit of chain mail and I even made my own toggle clasp

Now if you would like the chance to win this necklace and a few other goodies make sure you come back on Sat 15th Dec as I will be having a giveaway!

A huge thank you going out to Lesley and to Kaz for being so generous and maybe now I wont be so scared to use those big beads!

Why not grab a hot chocolate and see what other beauties have been made.....
