Ceramic Blog Hop

Welcome to the 2016 Pine Ridge Treasures' Ceramic Blog Hop!  

I am really looking forward to seeing what everyone made!  Just a quick recap: each participant was sent a bead kit with a mixture of awesome jewelry making items.  The kits contained either a ceramic pendant, or a ceramic pendant and coordinating beads. Also included were a mixture of glass, crystal, and 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? I usually keep a blog hop kit for myself, but this time I accidentally sold all the kits. Then I got super busy at work.  So I made a pair of copper earrings with some brown squiggly pattern ceramic squares that I had in my bead stash. I think that these ceramic pieces were by Marsha Neal.  I have had them a long time. I like the classic look of the earrings and will be wearing them to work. I am sorry that I do not have more completed items to show for the hop.   

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