Pine Ridge Treasures' Beach Blog Hop 2015

Welcome to the 2015 Pine Ridge Treasures' Beach Blog Hop! 




I can't wait to see what these talented ladies made!  Just a quick recap: each participant was sent a bead kit with a mixture of beach related items, such as cultured seaglass, plated metal charms or pendants, glass, Tiaria crystal and more. Participants were instructed to make beady creations using their kit beads, and other items in their bead stash (if they so choose).  

What did I make for the hop? I would like to share a bracelet and a pair of dangle earrings.  The starfish and palm tree charms added just the right amount of "beach vibe".  I am also making a pair of earrings with the green fishbone cultured seaglass.  They are not quite ready (yet).  The cultured seaglass, Tiaria crystal and plated metal are from ZnetShowsI added the fun orange faceted czech glass rondelles from my bead stash.

Summer Waters Blog Hop and Challenge

Welcome to the 2015 Pine Ridge Treasures Summer Waters Blog Hop and Challenge!  



I can't wait to see what these talented ladies made!  Just a quick recap: each participant was sent a bead kit with a mixture of cultured seaglass in blue tones, as well as other surprises. Participants were instructed to make beady creations using their kit beads, and other items in their bead stash (if they so choose).  

What did I make for the hop? I would like to share a necklace in soothing sea tones that I created using cultured seaglass and Tiaria crystal from ZnetShowsI added some beautiful lampwork beads by C. Evans Designs.  Sorry for the poor quality photos - my camera was not cooperating.
