http://teamtoho.net/challenges-and-contests/2014-toho-challenge/ Most others focused more on the blue beads but I was drawn to the metallic pink. Our bead group was well represented as 5 other members also participated in this challenge.

http://joom.ag/sFfb In case you don't know what that is I will tell you. http://www.znetshows.com/ publishes an online magazine 4 times a year. It features their designers(which I am one of) using their products. The earrings in the pic above are the ones I designed for this issue. It is my first time publishing a tutorial. The Znetshows people are great to work for. They are known for their cultured sea glass which I used in my earrings. Here is a link to see their extensive line of cultured sea glass products http://www.znetshows.com/gemshow/retail/sea_glass_beads.asp The cultured sea glass has unlimited design possibilities and is fun to work with while being very really reasonably priced. I also used some of their Chinese crystal beads in the earrings and here is the link to them http://www.znetshows.com/gemshow/retail/chinese_crystal_beads.asp . They also have gemstones and glass pearls. My earrings used tiny white pearls too and this is the link to their pearls http://www.znetshows.com/gemshow/Retail/ptvlstsuba.asp?ProductsubType=glasspearls . It is worth your time to check out the magazine for inspiration and ideas. Also please visit http://www.znetshows.com/ to see great jewelry making products that are very reasonably priced. There is a pic of the cover above for an idea of what you can see inside. Enjoy.
