Whoo!  My first challenge!



My goal was to create something with a more fashion-y feel out of something cheap Smiley  I made all of the magazine beads.  Both the dangling wooden beads at the end as well as the big wooden round beads at the top were found at the thrift store.  I had to buy the seed beads, though!

Here are the separate layers:

And on me!

Oh hey, this was my first time using the timer on the camera.  No more mirror photos, thank you very much!

Please let me know what you think!

Oh yeah, I was inspired by this post:

OMFreakingG, that is so pretty, and I am pretty sure this is a winner. This has so much impact. So I'm gonna pin it as soon as I get the button on this machine.

I'm not usually a big fan of paper beads, but this really turned out stunning!  Lovely job!
