November Component of the Month Reveal

  Kristen Stevens, the talented seed bead weaver, hosted the Art Jewelry Elements component of the month design challenge for November.

She was inspired by this palette


to create these beaded beads

I received the rust colored set, 2nd from the left. I pondered all month long what I was going to do with these gorgeous beaded beads. (what can be better than a BEAD made out of BEADS?!?) I finally decided I really wanted to make some simple earrings that are very swingy and sparkly. Perfect for all the upcoming holiday parties. Wait. I haven't been invited to any. I guess I'll just have to wear them for fun then while I admire our Christmas tree and drink spiked egg nog.

Beaded beads by Kristen Stevens. All I did was add some sparkly chain and ear wires. #AJE #componentofthemonth #COM #glassaddictions

I love the dangly, sparkly combination of your earrings Jen! Kristen works magic with those itty bitty beaded beads! :)

You crack me up woman! It is funny for me when folks talk about all the parties they go to during the Christmas season. We will have my husband's work party, and that's it. But I would so rock those babies while I'm Christmas shopping! Easy and simple so works for me.

Susan Kennedy

I love your earrings, they are perfect!

Lesley Watt

Love these... a bIt of autumn sparkle - just what the doctor ordered!


Wonderful! I love the rhinestones with these beads, what a great contrast/combination!


Beautiful! I love those crystals! Enjoy your egg nog :)

Melissa Meman

These are spectacular, Jennifer! I love the rhinestone chain!!


Such elegant earrings and I'll bet they would look just as good with jeans and a nice shirt. I love the rhinestones too!

Ann S

Your earrings are lovely and fun! Definitely good for a big party or a party of one. And nothing can be better than a bead made of beads. They always blow me away.

Veralynne Malone

Very, very pretty! Excellent job!


It's amazing how something so simple can be all you need! These are very cool, I love Kristens beaded beads, I think I have a new addiction!


To me they are like autumn meets winter. The fall russet color with the party/icicle bling. I like 'em!
