Bead & Glass Boutique Dreamweaver Challenge

My first ever Bead & Glass Boutique Dreamweaver Challenge was a challenge.  I wasn't sure what was going to happen with this kit.  Again, I mulled it over for a long time.....before I finally nailed down what I wanted to do.  In fact, this is only the second ever piece that I actually planned out and sketched  I joined this challenge because I loved the colors of the kit (this happens a lot :)).

Purples and blues, what a great combination!  So, I managed to use almost all of the kit.  If you're familiar with their challenges, you have to use 77% of the kit in your piece and only one piece is allowed.  My issue is this:  in all of these challenges they never include enough seed beads for me :P.  I ended up ordering extra waxed linen, and used it to crochet part of the bezel around the cab. So, this is my piece I call it Flight of the Dreamweaver.  Not one of my better pieces (and I'm sure that's because I planned it out hehe), but still I think it's a worthy piece.  The only things I didn't use from the kit were two colors of rat tail cord.  And I used a lampworked dichroic cab made by my friend Judy McCourt, of Annoyed Artist Beads.
