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." 




Now, please check out all of the jewelry awesomeness created by the blog hop participants:

Pine Ridge Treasures' Gentle Spring Blog Hop

Welcome to the 2016 Pine Ridge Treasures' Gentle Spring Blog Hop!  



I can't wait to see what everyone made!  Just a quick recap: each participant was sent a bead kit with Czech glass in pink or purple tones, as well as thin cotton or linen orchid colored cord.  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? I was all ready to create a pink necklace for Spring when I got a burst of inspiration.  It has been a rainy April.  I was looking outside at all of the puddles in the street when I saw the purple/lilac and green sheen on the water. I knew I had to create a necklace with these colors and some sparkle.  I found some large crystal cubes that look purple and green, depending on the light. I added in glass pearls and some silver plated spacers, as well as lilac glass teardrops. (All beads except teardrops are by ZnetShows). I call it "After the rain."
