First I need to tell you that I have been struggling with "my word" for the new year. Nothing seemed to fit. I still want to grow in my beading but I wanted another challenge, then it totally smacked me in the face when one of my dear friends sent me an e-mail telling me about Jeannie's challange. PURSUE! Most of the time when someone suggests that I look into something I do just that, look into it. No more. This year I want to pursue it until it's end and see what happens. I did just that. Nerves on the very brink I contacted Jeannie and asked if I could be considered. Any you know what? Well yes I know I wouldn't be posting this unless she actually said not only yes but showed so much excitement in my participation. I went over to her site Jewelry by Jeannie and checked out what she was offering.
Well you know I fell in love with these gorgeous blossoms! So I told her my choice and waited for it to arrive. I ACTUALLY thought I had a plan in mind and would jump right in when it came. HA! I should have known better (and actually check the size of the blossom) It came and at first I of course new it was so much bigger than I am used to using. Hello Seed Beader Here! But that lasted only about 2.2 seconds because this is GORGEOUS!!!! Her workmanship is outstanding, her color choices and blending is impeccable and to be totally frank I am in total love with this pendant! In fact I loved it so much and the inspiration flowed so fast I forgot to take a picture of it on it's own.
Yes I did choose Denim. I love denim and I don't think you can ever have enough denim!
So as you can see the first part came together so quickly I thought I would have this done in no time. HA! Again! Nope remember that I am still using my stash so the beads in the first sparkly wheels yeah not enough to make another set the same size. What to do? Hey make some smaller ones. K that works. So here is my progression into what I have now called "Denim Blossom"
Now you probably thought that was all Right? Nope! Here is a list of the other participants (and since I am writing this yesterday I can't wait to see them either) So check them all out and if you are looking for an awesome statement pendant hop on over to Jewelry by Jeannie and pick one of these up for yourself!

Ps If anyone is wondering why I have not responded or checked out many of your blogs as of late I am currently only able to sit down here for short periods of time due to the fact that I have to keep my hurt foot elevated. I will get it looked at and hopefully (I know I keep saying that) get caught up soon.
