Charmed I'm Sure Blog Hop

Welcome to the 2015 Pine Ridge Treasures' Charmed I'm Sure Blog Hop 


I can't wait to see what everyone made!  Just a quick recap: each participant was sent a bead kit with a mixture of awesome jewelry making items.  All of the kits contained a selection of beautiful metal plated charms.  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? My dentist's office wanted some dentistry themed charm jewelry to wear.  I made these fun dental floss charm earrings!  They really liked them, and so did their patients. 




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

Pine Ridge Treasures' Favorite Things Blog Hop and Challenge

Welcome to the 2015 Pine Ridge Treasures' Favorite Things 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 awesome jewelry making items.  I sent my very favorite things (hence the name). :-)   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? One of my "favorite things" is the color combination of black and red.  I wear these colors a great deal, and also love designing with them. I made a trio of fun earrings using Czech glass. 


Be sure to go to the bead group PRTbeadsandmore and see the challenge participants photos in the Favorite Things Challenge Album (under the photos tab).  Many people will be posting there. Now, please check out all of the jewelry awesomeness created by the blog hop participants:

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.
