The One Crayon Color Challenge

When Sally, from The Studio Sublime put out the One Crayon Color Challenge, I jumped on board!
Everyone got to pick ONE COLOR and the HUES FROM THAT COLOR.
I picked the color BLUE.

Here is what I created... 
The One Crayon Color Challenge (I picked blue) The One Crayon Color Challenge (I picked blue) The One Crayon Color Challenge (I picked blue) The One Crayon Color Challenge (I picked blue)

I started by making one of my Tide Pool Pendants with a lampwork starfish in tones in blue, added blue dyed coral, blue mat glass beads, beach pebbles and a touch of blue wire ribbon.

Thanks Sally for the fun challenge!
Below is the list of all those who participated in the challenge..
