Gossiping Goddess / Cheeky Cherub Challenge Reveal

For some wonderful reason, Kaz from Cheeky Cherub Designs decided to bestow a heap of leftover lamp work beads on Lesley Gossiping Goddess Watt. In a very fun and generous move, Lesley decided to share some of her treasure with her readers for this challenge. I was one of the lucky winners! I received a heart and two coordinating round beads. I forgot to photograph them before I utilized them, sorry!

This year, we got a bigger Christmas tree than we have in years past. That meant the ornaments were a bit sparse, so I decided to make one out of the heart. I combined some coordinating beads, sari fabric, and cranberry leather, and made this beauty. I like how the fabric looks like the heart's wings! And it looks lovely on the tree. I'll get to admire it for years to come.

For the round beads, which are admittedly an unusual color, I managed to find matching beads, and made these adorable swingy earrings. I'm very pleased with them - they turned out much better than I'd initially imagined. I love when that happens!

Please make sure to check out what everyone else has done!
