Pine Ridge Treasures' French Countryside Blog Hop

Welcome to the 2016 Pine Ridge Treasures' French Countryside Blog Hop   

I think that this is going to be a very creative hop!  Each participant was sent a variety of beads, most with a color theme of purple, green, and black.  They were instructed to make nifty creations using their kit beads, and other items in their bead stash (if they so chose).  

What did I make for the hop? A sparkly bracelet! I love classic designs, and this turned out to be one of my favorites.  It is perfect for me to wear to work. I am sorry that the photo is not sharper.  It was difficult to show how sparkly the glass beads were without the photo looking a little washed out.  The small round beads are really cool.  They are corrugated Czech glass in a purple color that turns green depending on how the light hits it.  I call this bracelet "Twilight Vineyard". 

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