Choosy Chicks Choose Chicklets Design Challenge

We will start off here with the Suebeads Chicklet Design and Blog Hop!
I have been suffering from a bit of design block lately. Finally it came to me that my little chicklet would make a pretty key ring!  I decided to use knotting cord with bone pieces feathers and star and then a few seed beads to dangle as well. this is what I came up with:

thank you toltec jewels and sue beads for the opportunity to participate in this wonderful blog hop. I was also given a couple extra chicklets and bought a set too lookign forward to designing with them :)

Haberdashery Blog Hop

This was a design blog hop using fibers in a design.. again with design block ti took a while . I was surfing pinterest for ideas. i contemplated a few different things then decided why not make a simple pair of earrings!!! This is what I came up with! Yes they are quick and easy fabric roll earrings.:)

this one got me way out of my elementl while suffering design block i wasn't quite sure where to take this challenge.  I still may add a dangle to this pair of earrings but I at least needed to post something.

Summer Carnival Blog Hop

Last and certainly not least is my Carnival Blog Hop!!! FINALLY Creativity has returned!!! Yes it took quite a while!!!! but I started to play with my beads and this is what I started with:

Well this is the first things i created not using the pieces but totally inspired but the theme of carnival merry-go-rounds.... i think of fairs and the merry-go-round! this piece is based off a pattern i bought from julia s preti called day pendant. i changed up colors  and the design to turn it into a merry-go-round! added horses too to both :)

 This is what I created: This is the Set!

Here is a close up of the necklace:
