THE FOUND OBJECTS CHALLENGE June 2021 with Thunderhorse Descendant

Launched these grab bags on June 8 the due date is July 1st - EVERYONE IS WELCOME TO PARTICIPATE

Inspired by the book "Jewelry Maker's Design Book and Alchemy of Objects" by Deryn Mentock

Hello Party People!! We are going to have a challenge....these grab bags contain random beads and some findings, charms, some have pendants , some new some harvested ect.. You got your $5 bag NOW WHAT…

Get inspired by your bag!! The point of this challenge is to expand our design skills and thoughts about what “cool” jewelry really is. Change is not always comfortable for everyone. I suggest refraining from using your items ASAP. Give yourself a little time to get acquainted with your bag of items. Maybe do a little research on the beads, theme, color, ect...a new technique you have been thinking of trying….Then come to morning coffee LIVE on Youtube and discuss with us. You can make whatever and add whatever you want to your piece! YOU DO NOT HAVE TO MAKE JEWELRY. You can add whatever makes you comfortable from your stash.

Get the camera! Take a few pics of your selection of beads prior to your project...this way you will have something to document in your “design book”. Better yet get the design book out and do a little sketch in there about your design. Maybe use some of those cool stickers you picked up too!

Get to making!! If you are struggling with the challenge, maybe move to a different part of your house to bead, maybe take your stuff outside if it's nice. Don’t forget to take some photos. If you don’t get your piece done in one day….no worries it is not a race we have until July 1st. The winner will be picked on July 6th.

Complete your piece!! Do a Happy Dance!! Again photos and come to morning coffee to tell use about your progress! Remember this is a challenge so remember to support peers as well by making comments on their items as well….remember EVERYONE is outside of their comfort zone and might need a little encouragement.

Post at least 3 photos (more is better but will not help your chances of winning) in the Thunderhorse Descendant Group on Facebook and Tag @Thunderhorsedescendant and @RandeeBrown to make sure I get a notification to put you on the list for entry into the challenge . If you would like you could tell us a little bit about your process, struggles, wins, you know the ups and downs. Trust there is a designer inside everyone of us!!

The due date for all projects is July 1st (this will not be a judged contest; it will be a random number generated drawing) I will announce the winner on Thunderhorse Descendant’s Tuesday night live at 8pm CENTRAL TIME on July 6th! On the Thunderhorse Descendants business page.

Good Luck to All and email me if you have questions, comments, or concerns -Randee.

Privacy policy

This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through Etsy.com or its related sites and services.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy. You can reference the Etsy Privacy Policy to learn more about its privacy practices.


To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order of jewelry, for example), if you contact me directly.


I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

• as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;

• when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;

• if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and

• as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.


Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

• Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.

• Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.

• Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.

• Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.


I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 4 years.


I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.


If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:

• Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.

• Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.

• Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.

• Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.


For purposes of EU data protection law, I, Randee Brown, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me in a conversation on Etsy, or at thunderhorsedescendant@gmail.com, or write to me at Thunderhorse Descendant Co Randee Brown 517 Old North Main Street Cambridge MN 55008.
