EBW Team April 2015 Challenge "Hardware"

Kris Empting-Obenland, the winner of our February Challenge, has chosen the theme for April 2015:


Please enter your favorite hardware store and get at least one item of whatever inspires you and integrate it into your piece of beaded jewelry!  In case you're still snowed in, your private stock in your basement or garage might do just as well. ;-) 

If you choose one single element of hardware it should be the main focal in your piece.  Alternatively you can use a random number of elements.  In any case please explain what you used in the description. 

I can't wait to see what you come up with!

Note to team members: Work on this challenge may be started from today, February 18th.  The entry must be listed in your Etsy shop by April 5th.  Please check the challenge rules to see what details must be in your listing.  Have fun creating!
