The January Component of the Month reveal! AKA “Use your stash!”

January 31, 2015 , In: Beadwork, Blog Hops, General, Inspiration, Jewelry

Did you dig around in your stash? Did you unearth treasure? 

This month the AJE team is hosting a “Use your stash” COM challenge – for lack of a more poetic term! We challenged each other, and you to create using components from your stash. ( Components created by AJE team members, naturally.)

We all do it… fall in love with a miniature work of art/art bead/component and treasure it. We purchase bc its so lovely, and we don’t have any plans to use it right away… This month was the time to fondle, dream, design and create with those pieces!

Thanks to everyone for their patience and creativity, their enthusiasm and fast email responses… šŸ˜‰

Here is the list of the participants – the team, winners and special guests!
