A Lisa Lodge (Pine Ridge Treasures..on Facebook) blog hop bead challenge.

I love these challenges!!  I learn so much about myself; stretch the bounds of my creativity!!  I recommend something like this to all artisans.

The premise is this:  Lisa announces a theme.  You buy the kit sight unseen; with just a couple of clues. What we knew about this kit was that it might contain cultured sea glass, glass, plated metal, and other surprises (you see... no 2 kits are alike).  My surprises were charms (stars), Picture Jaspar, glass pearls, and some lovely findings (clasps, hooks, spacers)

Here is a picture of the items I received:

You all know I LOVE this selection!  My ideas were flowing like nearby Niagara Falls!  Here is aa picture of ALL of my items I thought I would use with my new treasures!

You are absolutely right.....a wee bit overwhelming!

After narrowing down my choices I made a bracelet, a pair of earrings and 2 necklaces.  I hope you like them!  Please leave comments below.

The following is the same necklaces with a view of how it hangs.

I love them all but this last one is my very favorite!! Not sure yet, I might just keep it.  

Thank you all for visiting.  Please follow me for more blog hop challenges, sightseeing, fashion tips, visiting with your favorite artist.  I have restructured my blog.  I will post the  schedule in my next post.

These items will be for sale at Monday 2/27/16.

Thank you so much for stopping by!!!!!

Have a great day!!!

Please visit my fellow bloggers; see what was in their kits...

Blue Tassel Earrings. Blue and Silver Jewelry. Bohemian Gypsy Earrings

Heart Dangle Earrings. Blue Tassel Earrings. Blue and Silver Jewelry. Bohemian Gypsy Earrings.

These blue heart dangle earrings are constructed with tassels (chains with glass hearts) that hang at 3 levels. This gives the earrings more dimension, making them more interesting to view.


The longest chain is 1-1/2" long. The shortest is 1" long. The earrings hang a total of 3" from the top of the French hook; landing it at the bottom of your jawline.

Drop Earrings. Delicate Peach and Gold Earrings

 This listing is for the pair of delicate peach and gold drop earrings picture above.

A 24 K gold plated Morning Glory shaped ear wire is holding a 10 mm peach Czech faceted glass matte finished melon bead. 

These earrings hang 1 1/4" from the top of the hook (they will land at the very top of your jaw).

They are truly one of a kind jewelry. Elegant yet playful; subtle and dramatic all at once! These will easily become your go-to earrings for any occasions!

GOLD is the color of wealth, success and status.

The color peach represents immortality in Chinese civilization because the peach tree of immortality, long thought to be on a mountainside somewhere in the Tian Shan mountains in western China, is a key concept in the mythology of the Taoist religion.
