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. 

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