Blissed Out Challenge

The German bead babes Janna, Stefanie and Nicki are hosting their first challenge ever: Blissed out by your favourite song. 12 bead artists have created a piece of jewellery based on their personal favourite song. There were no other rules but to blog about the piece, and share your excitement about the favourite song. Today is the big reveal day, so have fun looking at what we all made, and leave us a comment if you’d like. You will find the links of all bead babes below.
Janna, Stefanie und Nicki veranstalten ihre allererste Challenge:
„Blissed out by your favorite song”, was soviel heißt wie “glückselig - oder auch inspiriert - durch dein Lieblingslied”. 12 Kreative haben ein Schmuckstück kreiert, das auf ihrem Lieblingslied basiert. Abgesehen davon,  dass wir über unser Schmuckstück bloggen sollten und dabei auch  erzählen sollten, was wir an dem betreffenden Song mögen, gab es keine Regeln. Heute ist der große Tag, an dem wir alle unsere Stücke zeigen, also viel Spaß beim Entdecken – und über ein Kommentar von Euch würden alle Teilnehmer sich natürlich sehr freuen! Die Links zu allen Teilnehmern findet Ihr unten.

SO, I hope readers don't mind but I will do the rest of this post just in English! My German is so much poorer than my German friends' English unfortunately!

Without further's my piece! 'Defying Gravity' from Wicked. 

Now I have to admit, I cheated just a little...I LOVE Defying Gravity....but I wouldn't say it's my absolute favourite was just one that I felt I could make a piece of jewellery based on. And actually, it's based on one of the two characters that sings this duet - Elphaba. She's green.....

I've used a number of art 'beads' in this piece - 3 beautiful sunbaked lampwork beads from Lush Lampwork,

 some Water and Wood chain from MissFickleMedia 

and a cool lampwork headpin from Kerry Bogert

Yes, you may have seen a sneak peek on my BTW this week...!

Here's a list of all the other bead babes participating - make sure you check out their blogs too!

This is GORGEOUS! I love it!

I wish I would have heard about this because our friends band has been my favorite band lately and I was inspired to make a piece based on a line from one of their songs!

It's gorgeous! I love that you described that lampwork as "sunbaked" because that's so perfect. Now I feel like running down the beach and getting sunbaked myself. :)
