Today is the reveal for another of Andrew Thornton‘s excellent challenges – Noble Knight. Andrew was inspired by Game of Thrones and other tales of chivalry and valor. I am happy that he shared some photos of the kit because I forgot to take them!
I love Andrew’s kits because they are such a wonderful selection of beads. This is a color palette I would never have put together, but I love it. The kits always include a Mystery Component hand made by Andrew.
However, I did make a necklace I am extremely pleased with. When I saw the colors of this kit and thought about the inspiration, I remembered a heart pendant I have by Jeannie K. Dukic of JKD Studio. The color is perfect with the challenge kit, and I think the design looks like the laced-up bodice of a gown from that era. It could also represent a healing heart – lots of heartbreak and intrigue in those tales.
Andrew’s kits are so beautiful with such a variety of beads, I often find I can make pieces without adding much else. Other than the pendant and a very few other beads, like the red bead for the clasp, I just used the waxed linen and beads from the kit. I even used the some of the red seed beads in the tube to embellish the loop for the clasp.
I had great fun making this necklace and know I will enjoy wearing it. I will share the necklace I make with the Mystery Component when I get it done.
Thank you to Andrew for another fabulous challenge! Please visit the links below to see what beauties other participants made.
