Fall Challenge Starts!!!

It's the return of a Buffalo Beaders favorite! Using the same elements, we will each create a piece of jewelry, perhaps even pushing ourselves out of our comfort zone!!!


Here's what we'll do. Bring 25 identical elements (or, if you prefer, more than one group, as long as you bring 25 of each one.)


At the meeting, we will each place one element into one of 25 containers. Then each member takes one packet, and has a month to work on a piece. The only ground rules are that you must use all the elements in the pack, and feature them in your design. You may add wire, findings, etc, needed to complete your piece.


If you have any questions, please post below. See you in September!!!

    Sorry, I had to change my RSVP. I have to help my aunt (an amputee) out.

      Pam, if you want to give me your 25 elements, I'll make sure they get included, and then I'll make sure you get a pack so you can make your amazing creation to show off at the conclusion meeting!!!!

    Kelly, you will bring 25 pieces of one thing - a bead being generally what people bring. But you might bring buttons, or washers from the hardware store, or a clasp, or a headpin,..... the only limit is your imagination, and having 25 of whatever it is!! Now let's say that you have these lime green seed beads, and you want everyone to have 7 of them. Then you will need to bring 7 x 25, or 175 of them. When you get to the meeting, there will be 25 containers of some sort, and you will put one (or 7) of each of your elements in each container. Then we will all have this eclectic collection of things to make a piece of jewelry from. We'll photograph the elements and the results, and post them on the website.

    Does that clear up the confusion? (And thanks for asking, Kelly. I know there were others who were also confused!!

    Hope to see you soon.
