June BDC Challenge Entries

I was really excited when the theme for June's BDC Challenge was announced - Inara. I just knew that some really gorgeous things would be made - and I wasn't disappointed! Check out how Inara inspired some Big Damn Crafters' members.

Into the Black by Figments

The necklace is a beautiful combination of black Czech glass e-beads, small opalite beads and 4 small pewter star shaped beads strung on 18.5" of tiger tail bead cord. Hanging from a lovely Tierra Cast lead-free pewter bail is a stunning focal of carved black cinnabar and two opalite beads on a silver tone headpin. The cinnabar is carved in an Oriental pattern and measures 5/8" across. The pendant portion hangs 1 1/8" below the main strand of the necklace.

Inara's Pink Jade Victorian Brass Stamping Necklace by lunaarcana

This necklace features a gorgeous Victorian-style bronze-colored stamping.

Comprised of new Sochoo pink jade, each bead is individually strung with permanently coated bronze colored copper Vintaj wire. The clasp is a beautiful but simple brass Vintaj swirl.

This necklace measures 17.5".

Inara - Handspun Bamboo Yarn by inlerah

Silky, shiny bamboo yarn dyed in bright shades of turquoise, with lots of purple, copper, and green accents is plied with turquoise metallic thread for a beguiling yarn fit for a Companion.

The bamboo yarn is shiny and next-to-skin soft, and this would make a beautiful accessory, or knit/crocheted jewelry.
