Designer quest #26 Eureka Beads Beadingforumdotcomdotau

Well it's nearly time for the DQ26 to be revealed. the Beading forum has several designer quests each year hosted by different suppliers.

This time I chose the teal and brown pack

The pieces were much larger than what I'm been working with and the seed beads were size 6 also very large.

I had a few ideas floating around, one with wirework and the other soutache. As I have been doing quite a bit with Soutache Braid lately, I hunted out some colours and started planning.

I chose the flower focal with central hole and one of the set of large roundish ones at top. I also had a smaller one in my stash that matched. I stayed with the colours of blue and bronze. I built the bezel up starting with size 8 delicas then size 10 and 11's.

I wore this a few days ago, it has a heaviness but the softness of ultrasuede feels nice, very comfy to wear.
I had intended to do something else with the rest of the kit but time got away.
My pic has been posted on forum and they'll be opened for viewing later this week. It will be interesting to see what everyone has done with their packs.
There are prizes, but I enjoyed the challenge combined with the time cut off, so I'm happy with my piece.

Let me know what you think!
