The color of dreams blog hop is a challenge from Rita of Jewel School Friends.  50 Participants received a free bead (I love free) to create and discuss our dreams
This was the bead I received. These were the beads distributed
Color of Dreams Bead Bounty

At first I was disappointed with my bead.  I am a pink girl I love bright colors, a romantic at heart, I wanted flowers and butterflies, and then I realized the challenge. I realized that part of my dreams is to be able to meet challenges head on. Take the challenge and make the best of it.

I selected Turquoise and copper made dangles, I love movement. I created this Bracelet.  It didn't feel like my dream.  I like Vintage. One of my dreams is to create Vintage inspired Jewelry.

So I choose a Brass stamping from BSUE BOUTIQUES, I grabbed my Lumiere's from Bsue"s and colored it in happy colors from within the bead, (I am always challenged with browns and blacks) attached my pretty bead, copper findings, crystals and chain. Now this vintage inspiration feels like me. I love the inspiration the bead created within me, and gave me the ability to create this piece.

My Dream is too learn all that I can about creating Jewelry. But also to acknowledge that there are things I want to know but not necessarily be able to do. I dream of the perfect space in which to create, I have yet to accomplish that. I dream of having a customer following base as I venture into having my own website. A dream I hope to accomplish in the near future. I so need a pair of earrings for my Lovely Necklace

I hope you have enjoyed this post as much as I did writing it. Hop around there are 50 of us. Happy Sunday!
