Fairy Tale Inspired Projects And A Winner! {Monthly Challenge Entries}

For our first Monthly Challenge we asked you to create something inspired by Janie Grohman's beautiful, fairy tale illustration. Entrants were welcome to interpret the Fairy Tale Theme in any way that they liked - and they did! It's now time for us to share our entries and, of course, announce the winner of the £15 voucher code for The Bead Shop Liverpool


Carolyn has used some beautiful Swarovski Bicones and Swarovski Cosmic Rings, as well as Tri-Cut Crystals used a spacers. Aren't the colours lovely?


Deb created her lovely 'Snow Queen' netted necklace using Miyuki 11s in Pearl Ivory Ceylon and a decorative clasp.


Mel has used a combination of stitches to make her beautiful 'Fairy Tale Vines' Necklace. Inspired by tales of her childhood, Mel immediately thought of the vines that hid princesses away in their towers!


Sharon's 'Pixie Dust' Pendant has been made with polymer clay, which she has coloured and decorated with acrylics, inks and mica powders. Pretty enough for a princess!


Last, but not least, Vicki's 'Fairy Bride Bracelet' was inspired by the iridescent colours of fairy wings and she has combined rich tones of emerald, purple and gold. The bridge itself, leads the fairies to their secret garden. Isn't that such a lovely thought?

We were absolutely thrilled to receive such beautiful entries for our very first challenge and we're very thankful that we had already decided to choose a winner at random! We popped everyone's names into the Random Generator and, at the top of the list is....

Sharon! Congratulations! Sharon, please e-mail us at, so that we can send your your voucher code!
