Shadowbox challenge reveal!

 Way back in July, Lorelei gave us a challenge: to make something FAB-O out of these shadowboxes by Sara Lukkonen of C Koop beads. These have some beautiful colors and you can do so much with them. I was lucky enough to be chosen as a participant for the challenge.  In fact, everyone listed here was lucky enough to be chosen as a participant:
11. Grubbi

 We've had about a month to prepare for our reveal date, and by gosh! It's here already! 
Et Voila! the big reveal!

My shadowbox had 2 holes on one side, and 1 hole on another. I used colored wire for accent, and silver beads to frame the blue ceramic bead in the center. The center bead is more sentimental than fancy, as this bead was part of the packaging to some handmade soap my beloved and I bought together, shortly after we started dating. I have kept it all this time, trying to figure out what to do with it. 
I used other large silver beads for accent, and hemp cording to tie it all together.

with a handmade copper hook and loop for the ends.

Don't forget to check out what everyone else made! This was a great project. I always like a challenge. A big thanks to Lorelei and Sara for making it happen.
