Echo Creative Club -- April Reveal and a Little Giveaway

I am glad to once again be a part of the Echo Creative Club hosted by Jeannie Dukic of Jewelry by Jeannie.  This month I had the privilege of working with Jeannie's peeled paint beads ... in purple!



Inspired by my favorite color, as well as the Wrapped, Stacked and Layered Challenge I just participated in, I created this set of bangles I lovingly refer to as The Purple Zebra.





In addition to Jeannie's peeled paint beads, I used glass flower beads, peanut beads, amethyst chips and 20 gauge wire.

*** Giveaway ***



I also made these long, light dangles with some leftover beads.  For a chance to win these earrings, simply leave a comment below.  For two extra chances, please follow my blog.  Easy peasy, right!  I will happily pick a winner on Sunday, April 29th.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today!  Below are the links to the blogs of the other designers participating in this month's Echo Creative Club. Please take a moment to hop on by to see what they've created with Jeannie's beautiful components.

Because Your beading is charming.
I love the three bracelets,You've made.They are as 'one' and should be worn together with no stipulation:-)
Fantastic set with earrings-I'd personally wear it every day with pleasure.
Those larger,silver-purple beads are so nice looking,that they give the main accent to all composition.Very beautiful sort of beads You have used here.They match one another in excellent way.
