Wrapped, Stacked & Layered Challenge: REVEAL
The Challenge that almost wasn't

Phew, so this was indeed a challenge!  Back when Tracy originally offered to host this challenge, I thought I'd have no problems working on it.  Lo, how wrong I was!  LOL  But it's all good, because luckily I'd plenty of bracelets already made, ready made,  in fact, for this challenge!   But then I ran into another problem.  I lost the charger for my camera battery.  gah.  And couldn't find my husband's camera.  So.  There.  But wait a minute, Instagram!  Yeah, not the best for showcasing jewelry for a challenge, but you do learn to make do, don't you?  So.  WIth no further ado,  here are the two stacks that I created for this challenge.


This first stack features two copper wire bangles and two linked copper bracelets featuring ceramic beads - artisan and commercial.



This next stack features one of my brass cuffs that's been highly texturized and patina'ed, along with two other multi-strand bracelets featuring Czech glass in turquoise, yellow and orange.  These are my favorite bracelets right now and I wear them all of the time!

Again, as I said, not the best photographs.  Once I get my battery charger found, I'll be retaking these pics with intent to reblog them.  I'm sorry they're not better...seriously.  Not up to my standards...but again, once must make do at times :(

Thank you so much, Tracy, for doing this awesome challenge.  It was alot of fun figuring out the best combinations to showcase here!  And yes, all of these bracelets were created by me.  Please check out the other players on this awesome blog hop!  Don't forget to start off with our lovely hostess though :)  Tracy, thanks again!

Miss Holly! I love the look of these, aged, time worn. And your pictures help convey that! Your copper is my favorite! Enjoy the day. Erin

I am so glad to hear that I am not the only one who loses things, most times I think my kids contribute to the losing things but also my scattered ways of having things cluttered all over the place too. I love your stacks they are beautiful!

Stacey said...

The big ceramic beads with the copper looks very cool..
Great fun color combination on the second!!!

Lynda said...

I'm a huge fan of warm copper and your first stack is wonderful with the addition of a few special beads.
Love it!

Tracy Statler said...

Holly so glad you can through in a pinch! Nummy colors in the second grouping and beautiful wire work in the first stack. Awesome! Thanks for playing - even when things were not going your way!

Holly, you came through without your camera! I think the pictures are great. I loved seeing your wire bangles...right up my alley! The copper work and ceramic combinations are really beautiful!!

great colour combos & wire work

Jo said...

I really love the colours you've used, not ones that I'd think of putting together, but that's what I love about these challenges - they teach me about more colours mixes!

I like what you're doing with copper in that top photo!

Rose said...

So pretty! The first one has an aged look and the second one is bright and colorful! So beautiful!

Question: Did you make your bracelet display yourself? I love it.

CraftyHope said...

Lack of 'real' camera or not, your stacks are lovely. The copper ones are a really simple statement, but your other ones are bright and cheery. I love them both!

I really like both sets. I love the copper and the orange and teal together.

Pretty Things said...

They're lovely! And I didn't enter the challenge because I sat looking at my beads going "duh" for too long -- I just couldn't figure out anything!

Shel said...

Oh Holly - I'm loving the turquoise and orange w/the pop of yellow - those are gorgeous! Sorry to hear about your picture taking woes,...those are never fun!!

Beautiful! I love the warm copper in the first stack, and the wonderful bright colors of the second stack. Nice job!

I love all your bracelets. The contrast between warm colors of copper and brass and orange and the coolness of the turquoise and ceramic sets them off nicely. Well done!
