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:
