Bead and Button Design Challenge Entry

I finally got up the courage to actually enter a Bead and Button Design Challenge. The May 2017 challenge is Heroes & Villains. So, I entered a Power Puff Girls inspired brick stitch beaded cuff!

"Lots of sugar and just enough spice! This 7 inch cuff is brick stitched with Perler fusion mini beads and Perler fusion beads to reflect the child within. Blossom in pink, Bubbles in blue, and Buttercup in green mix and mingle in fast-flying joy while close by in worry the white coated genius Professor watches."

Here is a link to the contests page if anyone else wants to enter their work -- or vote on mine :) -- http://jewelrycontests.secondstreetapp.com/HEROES-AND-VILLAINS-The-May-Design-Challenge/gallery


Bead and Button Heroes And Villains May Design Challenge Entry
Power Puff Girls Brick Stitch Beaded Cuff
I loved watching the Powerpuff Girls when I was little, again when my daughter was little, and yet again with my son. I wanted to be just a bubbly as Bubble, just as tough as Buttercup, and just as level headed and intelligent as Blossom. It was only natural that I thought of creating a piece inspired by them.
