That's right -- a Beaducation Design Challenge! Not everyone chose to participate, but those who did certainly found interesting ways to use the required materials:
The "rules" were that we were required to use each of the materials provided, but we could add additional materials as well. We had three weeks to complete the project and revealed our treasures during a take-out Thai lunch one day. What fun!
You can see below that the pieces everyone submitted are as different as each of us are. Some people even broke the materials into two projects! Everyone worked at their own level so the challenge (not competition!) was fun for our veteran jewelry designers and newbies alike.

Can you identify all the techniques we used in our work? I spot 9 different methods at play!
We are already looking forward to the next design challenge, and we'll be sure to share our creativity with you!
