2016 Pine Ridge Treasures' Black and White Blog Hop and Challenge

Welcome to the 2016 Pine Ridge Treasures' Black and White 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 Tiaria Crystal and glass pearls. Many kits also included snowflake obsidian gemstones and silver 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? A classic bracelet and earring set!  Czech glass petal beads and table cut oblong beads are framed by corrugated silver rounds.  I used some white faceted crystals as well.  The earrings have head pins with flat paddles.  I call this set "Just the right touch." 

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