This is going to be a fun hop! I LOVE the color blue, in all its shade variations. It is so versatile. Here are some "inspiration" photos to get everyone in a "blue mood" - in a good way, of course!
The talented participants were sent a variety of beads and pendants in multiple shades of blue, as well as plated metal goodies. They were asked to create jewelry or other art using as many beads from the kit as possible. The beautiful cultured seaglass, Tiaria crystal, and most of the plated metal for this hop are from ZnetShows. Check out their selections: ZnetShows Cultured Seaglass, ZnetShows Tiaria Crystal and ZnetShows Plated Metal
It just would not be a blog hop without a giveaway, right? Leave a comment (by midnight EST September 13th) on this post and let me know what shade of blue is your favorite, and why. I will draw a name on September 14th. The winner will receive a bead package from me full of special goodies!
Without further ado, here are the participants!
