Component of the Month and Giveaway – September

August 23, 2013 , In: General
Hello – me again…

I’m back today to show you the goodies for next months component challenge – a little earlier than usual but since I have to ship from England I want to get them off to the rest of the team and our guest designers (wherever they may be) in good time.

And this is what they get to play with…one of these THEA Elelments bronze clay ‘bursting seed pods’ which feature lovely textured motifs and are patinated in a range of rich autumnal shades.

Each team member will get one of these to incorporate into a design and share the process and finished piece at the AJE blog hop on September 30th.

 And as always you have the opportunity to join in with the fun just be leaving a comment on here.

Do you fancy joining the September design team…well here’s how the giveaway, challenge, and blog-hop will work (please read all the
information carefully!)…

    Wow. These are absolutely beautiful, Lesley. I love the texture shapes and colors. They blend beautifully! I can't help but imagine what kind of lampwork I could make to go with these. If these are in your store I'll have to grab some whether I get chosen or not! – Julie at
