Pine Ridge Treasures' Sunny Day Blog Hop July 23rd, 2016

Welcome to the 2016 Pine Ridge Treasures' Sunny Day Blog Hop   




I can't wait to see what everyone made!  Just a quick recap: each participant was sent a bead kit with cultured seaglass and czech glass in shades of blue, yellow and green.  Blue for the sky, yellow for the sun and green for the grass and leaves.  Participants were instructed to make beady creations using their kit beads, and other items in their bead stash (if they so chose).  

What did I make for the hop? A necklace and earring set!  I used pretty faceted  crystal beads - large clear rounds and small peridot green rounds.  I also incorporated Czech glass sky blue faceted beads and tiny yellow accents.  Silver plated discs frame the blue beads and add some interest.  My inspiration was the morning dew on the leaves, which picks up shimmers of green and blue. I call this set "Morning Dew."

2016 Pine Ridge Treasures' Black and White Blog Hop and Challenge

Welcome to the 2016 Pine Ridge Treasures' Black and White Blog Hop and Challenge  




I can't wait to see what everyone made!  Just a quick recap: each participant was sent a bead kit with a mixture of Tiaria Crystal and glass pearls. Many kits also included snowflake obsidian gemstones and silver plated metal.  Participants were instructed to make beady creations using their kit beads, and other items in their bead stash (if they so chose).  

What did I make for the hop? A classic bracelet and earring set!  Czech glass petal beads and table cut oblong beads are framed by corrugated silver rounds.  I used some white faceted crystals as well.  The earrings have head pins with flat paddles.  I call this set "Just the right touch."
