My partner is Deanna Cox from Collette Designs and she gave me a lovely mix of blue and green soup. She sent me a beautiful handmade OOAK tree focal. I'm always amazed by the artists that make these kinds of beads because of the detail they put into it. Deanna also gave me some "Collette Originals". She is such a great lady, she even gave me some bits of extras "just because" :) Thanks, Deanna!
I ended up creating three necklaces and a pair of earrings.
Ready for the REVEAL!!! Here it is!
For the first piece I made I used the focal and the vintage Swarovski necklace. I linked it to the vintage brass chain with some of Deanna's "extra" goodies then added some bronze Swarovski pearls from my own stash and some other beads from my soup.
I call these my eggplant earrings! I had some of my bronze teardrop Swarovski pearls to match it with the bead caps then added the Vintage Czech glass and voila! A simple earring I can wear with the focal necklace.

So encouraged to keep going!
